Have got it down to BBS now (i think)
1. What is perfect size for S3 in 19"??
2. Standard tyre size on the S3 is 225 width. I know people run 215 stretch for clearance but one thing i want to ask.. does this not reduce contact area to road surface?? wouldnt it affect the handling in a negatove way??
3. of all the people here, are you happy you went wih 19's?
4. are a BBS CH 19" 8j heavier than an std S3 wheel?
this is where im at...
i want CH's.. im very in to driving the car. i dont want to affect the handling in any bad way... with 19's im going to get the amazing looks.. but with it you get reduced tyre width between raod suface and rim = harsher ride. and now the contact area issue + they are really quite heay (. With 18's im going to gain width ++contact area to road, keep the same ride comfort but am going to miss out massively on looks which i dont really want to do..
im sort of thinkin to get 19's and worst ways if i dont like it change to 18's which would be a safer bet than gettin 18's then having to spend again on 19's... :sadlike:
last question... has anyone got a pic of an s3 with 18" ch's in silver(wheel colour) lowered?? ill help me decide how good/bad 18's look!
