    A3/S3 aftermarket Wheels

    Hi guys!
    I'm looking for some aftermarket wheels to replace the standard ones in my (to come) S3.

    I was checking Antera, OZ, BBS but everything is nice in the websites. Does anyone has any suggestions on brand and photos of them fitted on an A3. I'm looking for 18 inch wheels.

    Please post your photos of your wheels, I would be grateful!

    Thanks
    Pedro

    i was thinking of BBS also

    a nice set of 18/19" CH's would look well

    porsche rims look well too - what about changing to a set of OEM audi/vw rims?

    OEM you mean the other three models available when speccing the car?
    I like BBS CH, RXII but I would like to see cars actually fitted with them.

    The standard ones are OK but I was looking to differentiate a little bit more that's why I had a look at Antera, amazing wheels.

    OEM - original equipment manufacture

    i mean the likes of RS4 wheels, S8, etc....

    i plan to put the new RS4 rims on my a3 but now these S8 rims are tempting as there is on A3 near me that has these and looks the dogs with them on

    Oh I see what you mean... Have a look on www.antera.it, new 2006 and check the Type 363 wheels I'm sure they would look very nice...

    The S8 are very similar to standard S3 so I wouldn't be any better. From booth I would pick RS4 but those Anteras are something completly different. Difficult choice isn't it? Are you planning to go 19'? I think I'll stick with 18's...

    i have 17" standard 5 spokes on mine at the minute but i want 18" RS4 reps

    but i do agree - it is always a difficult choice!

    BBS would also be my first choice. Very high quality wheels and a pretty good selection for the A3/S3.

    I like BBS wheels, most Porsche race cars I used to work on had them, but the one's fitted to the A3?????????? Nah! I don't like the centres, they're far too big for my liking, they need more spoke and less centre, the large centre makes the wheel look smaller than they are, 18 inch have the appearance of 16's

    I'd say the ones on the blue sportback are 19s but they certainly look like they have a bigger dish in the centre compared to the others. Wider maybe ?
