    Wheels look superb, a real classy look, these have been 'calling' me for a long time now, must resist !!!

    The drop is perfect too.

    I have read good things about The Falken 452, they perform really well for a 'budget' priced tyre, I'd opt for these if I went down the 19" route keeping the oem with the premium tyres for any track outings.

    Let us know how they feel when the weather improves, cheers, Spin

    They look great! I'm tempted with a set of CK's in 19".
    Do you have anymore pics from the back/side on? Would help me with my decision.....

    Bear in mind that the CK's are ET44 offset for the A3/S3 and the CH's above are ET50 offset.

    CK's will sit 6mm further out. They need to be run with 225 section tyres to avoid rubbing and the rear archliner screw removed i believe.
