    This is my problem...been through this thread so many times and while the bbs are ok I'm not mad about them. Don't like the vw helios at all. The selection over here (Ireland) is not as good as you guys have in the UK. Looking on-line, the shipping costs to Ireland are massive in some cases, as they can only ship by courier.
    MTM's are No.1 on the list as soon as I can track them down. I dont mind spending the money just want to be sure I'll be 100% happy with what I get.

    it is the your cars darker twin. The only alloys that will be replacing the bentleys are 19" bbs speedlines, 5spoke bentlley GTC or some 18s i have my eyes on

    Best place to look for alloys would be ebay, edition 38, wheelwhores and pistonheads. Yeah probably best waiting till you find a set you really want. I do like the MTMs as well. I made the mistake and bought alloys i liked but knew i wouldnt want long term and ended up changing them 6times last year

    Quick bit of advice guys. I've an Audi A3, by all accounts i've read recommended off set of 45.

    I've got my eye on some wheels that have an offset of 35, am I right in thinking I can get a spacer for each axle to sort this out?

    Thanks in advance

    a spacer will only push the wheel out further and make that offset number lower. you need a set of alloys that have an offset of 40-57 otherwise its a lot of work to get them to loom decent

    There are many different variants of the rotors. The new B8 A4 tend to be 19x8.5 ET43, I recommend a 215/225 tyre depending on what ride height you want and you'll be fine.

    Im not sure mate, sure it wouldnt be too hard, as id imagen the motors would be incorporated in the tweeters and would need a remote feet so when the stereo is on they pop up and when they turn off they go back in. Will need cutting into your dash and wiring.

    Would be worth while.

    Can someone please tell me if these wheels will fit my car?

    They are 5x112 8.0x19 ET45 with 225/35/19 rubber. My A3 has been lowered with the Eibach Sportline springs.
    Any rubbing, or just a case of removing the rear screw?

    Boring? predictable? Perhaps, but they suit the A3 down to the ground, 8.5x19 ET48.

    Lovely wheels col, My mate has just bought the same wheels for his mk3 caddy, they look sweet. I am going to try them on my SB to see what they look like, now i guess I don't need to!

    What mm drop have you got? I currently have standard s line suspension.
