    et43 is 2mm outside the minimum recommendation

    the a3 is et45-55 but I think you will be ok

    I dont know the tyre size you should go for but maybe something with a slight stretch to be on the safe side like 215/35/18

    well i have fitted some a4 dtm wheels to my sportback, and they do fit, but do rub on the rear on th eodd occasion. This is even with the rear wheel liners modded a little bit.

    As for the will the look ok question on standard suspension, mine looks like a freaking tractor once the wheels were on so i lowered it.

    Mine is the se though, so your suspension is 10mm lower than mine was , but i still think it will sit to high.

    But hey! what may seem high to me may look fine in someone elses eyes .
