    Massive Favour - Alloy wheels

    Afternoon all,

    A massive favour to ask of someone I know, but if you don't ask, you never know, etc.

    Basically, I'm going to need to leave my S3 at UCC for a week or so to get them refurbed and due to work I can't be without my car. So I'm trying to find some suitable wheels to borrow for a week or so? Happy to negotiate some beer token or something for the trouble, with tyres ideally but if not I can get them changed over.

    I know its a long shot before anyone says

    Thanks all!

    a week to refurb wheels?! I had all mine done by a mobile professional in half a day for £140, there was large chunks out of it too which the previous owner had done and when I got them back, couldnt tell!! Im in Milton Keynes, this guy doesnt really move his van so I went to him but I did it in 1 saturday. I have the 2005 A3 sportback sport with these alloys

    as they basic and had them the same colour (although he can change, or 2 tone etc etc) it wasnt expensive and are returned to how they look in the pic, was very happy

    Surely the place doing your wheel will have a set as I see this as a common problem when all cars use their services?

    They're not going to take a week to do. Due to work commitments I can only drop off/collect at the weekends.

    Mmm, I guess so but to stock alloys for every possible fitment/size is probably asking a little too much.

    Do A4 wheels fit the A3.

    If so, I have a set of 17's in Birmingham.

    If not, it was the thought that counted!!!

    Cheers for the thought Danny! Not sure 17's will fit over the S3 brakes though?

    17's will fit over I've got a set on ATM but the offset might be a problem with the a4 wheels I think the a3's are 56 but I'm sure a4's are that much lower, it's stamped on the back of one of the spokes

    I think that will be alright then, I'm sure someone will confirm soon enough but I cant see there being a problem

    What date would this be? I have a spare set of 18" ronals which 2 have tyres on that you could borrow.. I can throw tyres on the other 2 but would cost me about 60ish i think...
