    S3 wheel upgrade and brakes advise needed

    I have a A3 2006 2.0TDI 140 PD 5Dr I am planning on fitting 315mm front and rear brake setup from am R32/Seat/S3 or VRS I think I'll try go for the VRS as I like the green but I want S3 wheel and wonder if these will clear OK? I understand they are 17inch could anybody help with the model name???? My wheels are already 16inch and DON'T want 18-19inch so will 17's clear the brakes OK? Thanks peeps

    Yes Jimbos3 I have 16inch wheels fitted already and i want no bigger than 17 (I thought the pictured wheels were 17 not 18) I want the brake setup as noted above and wondered if they would fit under 17's or will I need bigger wheels? Thanks for clearing up for me that speed lines are 18's.

    I agree there is a lot of confusion in your post, that is a red herring photo! The S3 has much bigger brakes, 345mm front discs. Is this the size you want to fit?

    I understand the 312mm setup will fit under 16" wheels as this is a common winter wheel size fitted to people with this size brakes. So obviously 17s will be fine.

    S3 brakes would be nice and as far as I investigated a lot before I bought them, they fit under 17's..

    (pics) Cant Decide, Which 19'' Wheel Gonna be Primary ?:)

    Yes as diameter BUT I think the ET values will be also suitable.
