    S3 Aftermarket Alloys

    Thinking about getting some 19's for my S3. I want them in gloss or matt black and am looking for any suggestions please! I was thinking some BBS or OZ and definitely want high quality wheels. Any ideas are welcome!

    I do like them but they just seem to be on every S3 with aftermarket wheels! I like the style but don't like the polished lip particularly.
    I like these but been told TSW are rubbish.

    It all comes down to your budget mate as you can get a very nice set for £1K but if you have £2K-£4K you can get a truly awesome set from the likes of HRE or ADV.1 as mentioned by Pat, if you are after quality then you go for a set that have been Forged but the list is endless and as I said budget permitting!!

    I have also been looking for a set of 19's for the summer and veering towards Rotiform BLQ in silver at the moment but that can all change.

    In the past I have found it a very difficult choice, worse than colour choice!! Wheels can make or break a cars look!!

    Good luck choosing

    Thoughts on these 2 for an estoril blue sportback with ali trim and rails?

    Thinking of the rotors as the RS6 alloys don't come in hyper silver but hyper polished silver which isn't in line with the rest of the ali trim of the car.

    Just can't decide! Could someone please offer some advice?

    Thanks

    Sorry, on tapatalk so it hasn't arranged the alloy images side by side. The RS6 are the ones you like boy1308?

    Cost wise I think £2k max with tyres is enough to spend as I'll only keep it a couple of years.

    I've had many a set of after market wheels, but it doesn't even cross my mind to change the S3's.
    Think the S3 wheels are perfect in look, driving feel and size.

    I opted for the 10 spoke titanium alloys but wish I'd stuck with standard then I probably wouldn't be bothered about changing them. I think 19's would make a big difference to the looks though for the better.

    Hey guys,

    I'd like to change my alloys also from these one on the pic.
    Anyone knows how much they weight?

    Is there anyone that can put a picture of the inner side of the rim OEM ones? I want to know how's making them.
    And what about the weight?? 😳

    Not available in the UK. Closest to this in black or titanium are made by oz alloys, presumably available in the UK, part of the MSW range....

    Although on further inspection the Oz titanium one still is mostly black. Wanted something either all gun or normal alu coloured. There doesn't seem to be anything close on the market in the UK. Such as shame as a great wheel IMHO.
