    if i wanted to get hold of a set of original mint 18" titanium wheels (ones used on 2009 black edition A3's) where would be best place to start? Are they very sought after/rare?

    PS not ebay i've looked loads, nothing there.

    I'm loving 8.5x18 (et47/et42) with 215/35 front and 215/40 rear.

    Comfy? It's the same as 215/35x19 on an 8.5 but you need air to pull it off.

    If you're not on air 19s are probably the sweet spot, I agree.

    Something worth remembering, the place would be dull if everyone did the same thing

    yes 19x8.5 ET45 will work with 225/35 on a S3 2010 SB, although you may want to try 215 tyre so it gets a little stretch and less likely to rub

    I need your help guys, I've got some 9Jx19 ET52 rims, what's the best tyre size to go for? and what sort of a drop would I need to make them look right on normal sport suspension?

    What rims? You'll need 215/225 and a 5mm spacer to clear front strut and you'll prob wanna space the rear out 10mm.

    I was hoping you would reply S6 V10's, was gonna get LM reps but as you yourself say OEM is the only way to go! Do you think I could run them without a drop for a while? Without looking totally stupid. Or i was thinking i might just leave them till the weather gets better?

    I might just wait till the new year, so I can get them set up properly. Thing is they've been stacked in my room for a week and looking at them is driving me nuts! Also what do you reckon they're worth? They're literally brand new, never been driven on! I quite fancy some Bentley splits to be honest lol
