    I've done a bugger load of searching but can't find any pics, are there any floating around of an S3/A3 with 18" CHR or CH Black with the chrome lip?

    I want 19's but I'm not in a position at the moment to be buying new tyres and wheels and I can sell my OEM 18" S3's and use the hardly worn Conti SC3's, hence i'm considering the CHR or Ch Black Edition in 18".

    I really want new wheels so thinking that some 18" CHR/BE might cure my desires for a year or so until I can afford the 19's.
    i don't like the look of the silver 18" CH's on an 8P, wondering if I would like black/anthracite a bit better.

    Been looking through this thread loads and still can't decide what wheels to go for, was first thinking 3SDM or Alphards but I now want to go with some 19's instead. Apart from Bentleys what else is there that's 19" and wide that will fit without too much hassle?

    I have a '04 A3 2.0TDI Sport... Anyone know what stud pattern that is? also, seeing as I have just got new tyres I would quite like to keep to the same size rim so i dont have to go out and get a new set of tyres.. I know my tyre size, but not the appropriate rim size anyone know what size rim accommodates a 225/45ZR17 tyre?

    have you read through this thread? Is this a wind up?

    ok to answer your 2 questions.... stud pattern is 5x112
    your rim size is 17... the clue was in the tyre size 224/45/R17

    also if you still need to ask questions i suggest you use a search tool called google that can find you the simple answers. alternatively follow the instructions on this thread: HOW TO SEARCH FOR YOUR OWN ANSWERS

    Thanks dude, appreciate that.

    I'm sure they only come in 17's though, wouldn't want to run 17's personally unless on air
    I plan on 19's for sure
