    Hi Guys

    It has to be 19's, 18's just don't look anywhere near as good!

    I've got my eye in a set of 19' BBS CK myself.

    I know I know!!!!!!!!

    But my old age and moaning MRS is getting the better of me NOT!! LOL!!!! Thats why I asked I sort of new 19's but had to be sure!

    To be fair the S3 only does around 1000k a year so it's a no brainer ahhhh lol

    Cheers

    18's don't look that small if you fit 215 tyres, almost hard to tell

    19 if you can afford it, tyres aren't that much more than 18's. Id probably have 18's though, the ride is harsh as it is, i don't want it worse lol.

    Go for the 19s , I ran 20s on my Bmw and I didn't think the ride quality changed at all

    With BBS if you could go for 19's they look better as 18's look bit small unless you go with stretched/low profile rubber

    Having had both 19s and 18s on my car I'd say 18s

    19's! The only way the ride would be harsher between 18's and 19's is from lower profile tyres. There shouldn't be a ride comfort difference between an 18" and 19" /35 series profile tyre. Does that make sense? It does to me....

    Always 19s for looks but if you're lowered and like your comfort, I would say 18's. Does this help?

    Hi Dave

    Went for the falkens just a tad over £1500 But have them on my Cosworth and they have been sublime!

    I had to have CK'S ! Nothing against the CH'S but for me the CK'S are made for the S3 8P

    Colour was easy as i'm a clean freak the anthracite always look dirty to me :think:
