    S3 19" alloys on Std Suspension Pic's Request

    Hi,

    Has anyone got any photos of an S3 on standard suspension and springs but with 19" alloys? 35 profile tyres.

    Desperatley want to put some 19" alloys on my car, but worrying it won't look right. I'd drop the springs, but that's adding hundreds to my insurance.

    Have used a wheel checker link on the forum which suggests it won't lift the car that much but it's a big investment to be wrong on.

    Thanks

    D

    Trust me, it wont look right - had my 19s on before I fitted my insurance and looked soooooooooo much better when lowered.

    Many thanks sir. 2 weeks in Ibiza mothballing our holiday home for the winter, and I'm working away at the moment so not getting on t'internet as much as I'd like.

    Got a thread planned in the next week or so as I'm fitting a BSH catch can.

    It sounds tricker than it is!! It's a hi-spec PCV mod to take skanky residue out of the engine.

    I see .. do you have any numbers for the limits where the wheels will clear? I suppose the only OEM RS6 wheels that will fit S3 are the 18" ..

    Not sure, but my rears are 19"x9 ET41 and they are fine, and my fronts are 19"x9 ET52, but with my 10mm spacer it makes them ET42, they are fine also

    Hi,

    I think i'll stick to standard ride height. Think the back is perfect anyway, it's the front that looks a tad high.

    Problem when i first looked into dropping the car was insurance, as soon as i mentioned lowering, "that'll be 200 more sir".....maybe i'm just trying the wrong places, but quite happy with the look for now unless i crack the insurance and then there'll be no stopping me.......
