    Hi all,

    Im thinking of buying a green S3 but cant decide which wheels to go for.
    I ideally would like Audi wheels either RS4/RS6/RS8

    What do people recommend is best for looks i think the RS4 look best in my opinion.

    Any photos on cars would be appreciated.

    Thanks chaps

    I think the same the RS4 wheels suit the lines of the S3

    Is it only the RS8 wheels that come in 20 inch?

    Do they fit the S3, i know they fit the mk4 golf fine ?

    I love the RS4's but I think I would go for the MTM replicas.

    RS8? Did they make one them, tee heee

    If you mean the plug holes, the A8 reps come in most sizes and offsets for VAG cars

    Yes they look quite good but as mentioned before "19" Rims DESTROY the S3's handling".

    Out of those I would go for the MTM reps, RS6', RS4's etc are quite common. The MTM's are still a rare site :)

    I've just got myself a set of 18" NEW style RS4's. I'll post photo's later when;

    1. It's light enough to get photo's
    2. I learn how to post photo's!

    I know I'm biased, but I think they look the doggies!

    The MTM alloys are designed by and made for the German VAG tuning company, MTM. They should only come in 19" for A3/S3 fitments, although the replicas have other sizes are available.

    the 18s are a much more faithful rep to the origainals, as the lip goes all the way round the spokes as opposed to just half way down on those 19s. Rare as f**k though

    Nice pics. So that makes 5 sets of wheels on the S3 now? Make your mind up :)

    I think the pics with the RS6's look tasty, but just a little too big for the car. 18" wheels seem to fit better with the S3 body shape.

    Your MTM's look different to Duber's. They have the lip going all the way round the spoke, closer to the originals? Rochford 007s? After seeing yours, I'm thinking a set of those in black might look nice against the blue.:eyebrows:

    Cheers mate, well if you want to come down and try them on, feel free!
    I would LOVE to know how your car drives in terms of the BT, it would probably just make me reach for Mr Visa right there and then! lol :)
