    Tyre pressures? s-line 18's

    Just had genuine a3 s-line wheels fitted (rs6) 18'' to my A3 (8P) TDI SPORT,(SPORTBACK)

    What tyre pressure should they have? anyone who has the a3 s-line should know.

    interesting 10blazin... I have just recently deflated (19") back down to 31 all round as I found 34 was making the London barsteward roads to ruff and bumpy a drive. T'was like using a pneumatic drill sometimes! Well maybe not that bad but you get the idea, ay?!

    My 18s are set to 32 all round as well. Not had any probs with them set at this. Got about 19k out of the fronts and just had the rears changed at 32k.

    Off the top of my head the pressures given by Audi are around the 40 psi mark. Possibly 42 front, 38 rear. I'd have to check though

    Yeah, from the fuel cap. I run Continentals at 38 all round and the ride is ok, if a little crashy, but I found that lowering the psi doesn't really help this

    Looks like you had better be slowing right down over the sleeping plod blazin, looks nice mate! Definitely meaner! I like the look of it in the last pic... I bet those rims of yours would look good in the Audi titanium colour or colour coded lava grey with a nice polished lip/ rim of whatever it's refferd to as. Get some pics where you are at wheel level nice close ones of the gap and drop up when you get a chance.

    Also you never said, how much lower are they than the OG S-line springs?

    I've just been looking at your pics again, is it me or do your arches 'appear' to be more wider flared now?

    Some skirts would enhance this faux wideness me thinks
