    Nice, where's the rest?

    Perhaps aswell you can explain exactly where you got them and what you had to do to fit them. As far as I know yours is the first A3 we've ever seen with 19" RS4 wheels.

    I'm sure S3 owners would be interested to fit some 19" RS4s given the ***** wheels that come on thw new S3.

    Theres a couple more pics in the "pics of your 8p" at the top of the page.
    These are 45mm offset wheels but a friend on mines machined a further 3mm off the stud face to bring them in a little.
    The wheels were sourced from South West Tyres,as I'm a manager for a tyre firm wheels are the first thing I change on most of my cars.

    Thanks for the info, you should get your friend to post on here and tyresmoke. I'm sure he'd get quite a bit of business! given the fact no one sells off the shefl 19" RS4 that will fit the 8P.
