    For brand new wheels why would there be 3 Pirelli tyres and 1 Contintental tyre ? Very strange. Personally would never mix tyres on the same axis, and even having the fronts different from the back I'm not too keen on. So, if it was me, and if they fit, I'd buy another Pirelli tyre.

    OH yeah will deff fit a new tyre to match ! just need to know the offset any one know what it should be to be sure they fit ,I did a search on here and it says the bigger the number the closer to the suspension it is ! I think from what i have worked out it needs to be about a 50 offset

    Yeah the wheels in question are ET48 so will fit perfect on your S3. The tyres are way too big though and will be useless to you. The 255's are A6 spec. You will need to change down to 235/35 at best or if you intend lowering your S3 you will be better with 225/35

    So if you buy these wheels budget at least Ł550 for new tyres on top but I think you could re sell those 255's for Ł60+ each no worries

    Min I would say 35 but that would be on coilovers and 215's But for normal use the rule is to stick between ET45 and 52
