    What rims for my A3? suggestions please

    Hello!

    I got an A3 8p sportback -08

    and I got the bbs LM replicas 19" on but I feel they give me bad grip, heavy and doesnt allow me to lower it with coils..



    I'm looking for reps 18" with et46+ preferebly but cant seem to find any who fits and looks nice..

    what do you guys think?

    I could buy some 19" rs6?? which rims do yall think?




    Here's the car

    What offset are the wheels, and what size are your BALLON tyres

    you can lower any car on coils on any wheels as long as your tyres are thecorrect size and the offset of the wheels are correct

    You will get uber amount of grip depending on what tyres you go for and generally the bigger the wheel diameter, the wider they are so you have more surface area - bit of a biitch though in snow!

    I had 19x8.5" BBS CH ET50 on my A3 TDI lowered to the tyre on coilovers with no issues at all. They are now on my S3 lowered 25mm on H&R springs and the ride is fantastic with no issues. 235/35/19 tyres by the way - bridgestone potenza up front and kumho at the back (will be bridgestone once used)
