    Yeah I paid about that. It was a blinding deal at the time I thought. It would surprise me if it's still around though, tyre prices fluctuate load, and Conti must've had a lot of that size they were offloading cheap.

    The points you've highlighted are what I've highlighted, most boys who fit lightweight wheels are for performance, not for looks? I don't need to ask anyones opinion, everysingle person I've ever spoken to whos running 19"s have never bought for performance.

    to say it a little louder19" x 8J + ET44 and 225/35 profile tyres will rub on an S3 Sportback

    Hopefully me repeating this will save others the head ache I had in changing my tyres over and then selling the 225's and being Ł170 down for the pleasure

    With the 3 dr you can get away with 225/35/19's 19 x 8J on an ET44 on H&R's (as per Decked's above) without an issue. Maybe even 235's depending on tyre selection (as per Boydie's)


    Regarding performance - obviously the ride is harsher slightly - but I noticed this more when going from standard to H&R springs, than when I went to the 19's, its noticable slightly.

    I didnt notice any difference when going from 225 down to 215's for everyday driving - I suppose under the full right boot it will be noticable but I havent noticed it yet.

    I drive quickly on a blast out maybe 10% of the time so for the other 90% my car looks 100% better and doesnt rub its tits in. So 215's was an easy decision for me.

    I'll add some pics tomorrow if I get chance of mine on the 215's now, but seems this is a BBS thread it'd be a shame not to add some pics of them in 225 guise.



    Good point Paul, same here man, as I've said before, I'm not 100% PERFORMANCE, otherwise I would have bought an Evo FQ400 that does 0-60 in 3.9s and looks like a japanese lunchbox.

    Looks lik i'm in the minority here as I prefer 18". I personally find the handling sharper and less harsh on the 18"'s compared to 19's. Just lowered my S3 at the weekend on H&R's and TD Pro Race 1.2 and I am really happy with the result. No rubbing at all and the correct tyre choice can make a difference cosmetically. I went for PS3's. Some pics...

    18"s will always handle/perform better than 19"s, but 19"s imo will always LOOK better - imo

    Not necessarily true. The lower profile of the 19" rubber will give firm things up and is a good thing for handling. It's the ride that tends to suffer.

    right guys ive decided.. im goin 18's. final decision

    after thikin and thinkin i get the general feeling most people who tune there cars for hard road/track use are using 18's etc.. Jonny c springs to mind who always goes 18 and if im right he races cars??

    just been to look at them 18 ch's and they are mint! offered them up to thre car and they look the bo**ocks!!!

    im a hard driver, into performance over looks although i still think they look wicked in 18 especially once lowered!

    right am plannin to fit them this afternoon.. i want to coat them up but do i need to do this woith them off? if so will it be ok to get them then on the weekend take em off and do one by one??

    oh and what should i buy to protect them?? and coat them and where from?? (today) no links please

    Best to coat them when they are off, and use poorboys wheel sealant or rimwax, also Autoglym Super Resin Polish...

    In last weeks Autoexpress they tested wheel sealants and the surprise result was a product from MER won over all those listed on here, should be able to get that from a local Chavfords.

    Love those wheels and what a great price.

    Won't need the spacers looks sweet as it is, just needs a drop now. I thought it would look worse. Well happy with the wheels though! Driving is improved, Turn in is better. And they look wiked. I admit not as good as 19's but I'd rather sacrafice the looks over performance every time. I already made that mistake on my Cooper S. I'll get some pics up asap.

    To be fair, if I drove with some 18"s on now, the ride probably would be better, and handle better. But it looks gay, so 19"s for me ADL

    let me just tell you, i have been out tonight only for a little bit but they are even much better than oem wheels. i havent experienced 19's but if there is an improvement from my change it almost makes me feel like 19's would have been a step in the wrong direction (only as im lookin for performance over looks) but they still look sweet

    thought id add some pics after all this discussion, no the best as they are from iphone... i absolutely love them, needs lowering badly... butill suffer it.. car gets loads more looks now (as my pal said, its a proepr s3 now-the oem wheels on the facelift especially are so unsporty), drives better feels better over bumps, there also seems to be less road noise.. overall couldnt be happier, got a blinding deal to top it all off.. next up springs or coilies cant decide!
