    What width 18's on A3.

    Hi, what width 18's are best suited for the a3 8p?

    8's or 8.5's?

    after some BBS CH's or S Line ones to replace my 17¨ TT ones.

    For the A3 8P
    The suggested BBS applications are
    BBS CH 8x18 ET50mm
    BBS CK 8x18 ET44mm
    The 8.5 is available but only in a low offset ET35mm, this will cause the wheel to stick out of the arch too much.
    Please ring if you have any questions

    Shouldn't be too bad as you would be losing that half inch (approx 15mm) if they were 8.5

    My BBS CH ET50 are 8.5 wide and sit nicely in the arches

    with an offset of 35 the narrower wheel may not stick out, but the tyre may still be too far out and catch on the arch under compression as the tyre is wider than the wheel itself.

    I run 8.5x19 ET50 MTM's and they fill the arches spot-on
