    Lightweight alloys

    I am after some 18" lightweight alloys for my Audi A3. I have been looking at the usual OZ Ultraleggera in black which the best price i can find is at Rimstlye for 1169 HERE. Anyone know of where to get Ultraleggera`s at a better price or suggest any other good light alloys?

    Have a look at the Team Dynamics range, the Pro-Race series are very light. Also have a search for ROTA, they are a very well priced japanese brand of lightweight rims.

    If you're after OZ, speak to Revolution in Gateshead - they're usually quite competitive on wheels, and are top guys. Never heard a bad thing about Rimstyle either to be honest.

    This man speaks the truth. I had Team Dynamic Pro Race 2's on my old car and you could literally pick them up with 1 finger.

    Checked out the prices and Rimstyle are a lot cheap by several hundred when you count in good tyres then Revolution but thanks for the suggestion.I have seen Team Dynamic Pro Race 2's but don`t know the weight of the alloys plus OZ look much better quality but something to think about. Just checking out ROTA now.

    Oh right, my mate has some on his 8L S3. Maybe they only do 5x100 which is a popular jap fitment too.

    Nice choice, I did consider the black version when I bought my UltraLeggeras but though it might be over kill on a black A3.

    OK I take back that statement - very nice - perhaps I should have gone for the black ones too.

    Don`t worry mate i wasn`t sure myself if having black alloys on my car would have been over kill.

    that looks stunning, ive always wondered what a black car with black alloys look like. ive seen like little rude boys in black fiesta n they get them small black alloys with the chrome rim n it looks horrid, but the a3 seems to pull it off extremley nicely! good work there mate, id be very proud of that!

    I'd be very interested to know that too, thinking of getting a set to keep as spare for track days etc, also read good things about the Falken 452 tyres, not just good value for money but good tyres full stop.

    The LCR splitter is only about 18 and just needs a few of the center lugs cut shorter then fitted useing some self tapping screws. It`s a cheap easy mod.

    Cheers m8, that's just the sort of subtle front bit I was after - I take it LCR means Leon Cupra something or other, I've seen and read these words in association with A3s, but never saw one under an s-line bumper...till now!
