    Just wondering if anyone has seen 19's on an 8l looking at speedlines atm off the new 8p and they come 19" think they would be far to big, and would make my car look like a flipping scared cat
    Thanks :)

    ive seen a few 8ls on 19'' wheels. looks good but must compromise ride and handling, also not sure if any arch work would be needed. look at google images theres loads onthere

    I had 19' rs6 wheels, had them refurbed and new tyres, had them
    On for 2 weeks maybe, and sold them as handling was affected and because of the ultra low tyre profile you need it's a harsh ride too.

    It looked sweet and I loved them, they just wernt practical

    18" are good, i always think that 19" look like alloys with tape around them for tyres, just dont look right to me

    Original rs6's still suit the s3 so well I think!

    I'm happy with mine ( 19" MTM's), I find the stearing slightly heavier but a little more responsive with less fold, but that's just my 10 pence :)

    Had 19" RS4 II reps on mine (sold), think they look too big and they were way to heavy. Getting 18" with quality rubber this year.
