    S3 with 20"s

    Not a fan of the standard S3 wheels but in 20"s the look great.

    To my mind 19 is perfect, 20 is overstepping the boundary for that chassis. 10 points for effort though

    It is a stunning car. When i Revo'd it, it was sat on 19" RS4's and that looked good.

    Hey and there was me worrying about my ride quality on 19's !!!

    Am I the only one thinking of downsizing possibly to 17" ,or at least maintain 18"?

    iirc, I've seen some pictures of the mkv R32 with 17" winter wheels on, so no worries about brake clearance.
