    Tyre width

    Im in the middle of searching for new wheels for the A3

    want something different and eye catching so im trying to stay away from the OEM look and go for a euro style rim

    the likes of BBS, Keskin, Ronal etc...

    I found out that some of the older Merc AMG rims have the same PCD and the offset if fine for the A3

    pcd - 5x112
    et - 52

    the rears however are a massive 265/10.5"

    i can see a problem occuring

    anyone any idea what width i can get away with at the back without having to roll arches?

    i dont want to roll arches at all!!

    im getting FK coilovers too so im doubting this idea even more

    thanks for the help

    Can you get hold of 4 fronts? I presume the fronts were a more sensible size?

    yeah they are 8.5" or 8"

    going to be tricky enough to source 4 fronts

    plus they would prob need refurbed

    its soooooo tempting and looks well - i got a photochop done and i like them

    the rears are actually 9.5" which is better than i thought

    will 9.5" fit on the rear of the A3???
