    Pics of A3's with 19" Alloys

    Tried the search function but can't find what I am looking for

    I am after some pics of 19" alloys fitted to A3's (preferably facelift A3's and 19" RS4 or RS4 replica alloys)

    Found some for sale and want to make sure they dont look too big for the car and wouldnt mess handling up, etc

    Cheers guys

    Thanks for all the pics, they do look really good

    I still really cant decide if they overfill the arch tho and look a bit too big on the car ????

    So those are 18's on s-line suspension??
    How much higher is the sport suspension, cos i'm thinking of sticking those 18's on mine, but I don't want it looking like this.....

    Why won't you consider lowering?

    19's and not lowered will look silly imo, even on 18's it just pains me that there is a couple inch gap that could so easily be closed without compromising the comfort dramatically!

    Look into the likes of H&R and Eibach - excellent reputable brands that offer lowering and more or less standard comfort with an added handling bonus!

    At which stage/low-ness do you have to start worrying about getting different shocks??

    I want 19" RS4 reps for my Black Edition in IBIS but not sure which route to take, seen some mint wheels on here.

    If i were to go RS4 reps would i need to lower? If so by how much and what springs?
    Any other ideas on wheels for my car? I want to stick with dark wheels..
    Suggestions please?
    Cheers
