    Yes if the offset and width works for your car, but it will look like a tractor unless you get it right. Not really ideal. Go 19s max IMO

    Unless its 'stanced', 20's won't have a chance of looking remotely good I'm sorry. Go 18s or 19s if you aren't lowering it more than 70mm.

    If you have rubber band tyres it will work ;)
    Would really need to be bagged though IMO

    Hi guys.

    So after some fiddling around this weekend I decided agaisnt it, the offset was not right for the car and it was touching already. Yes, it looked like a Q7 lol.

    I have decided to get a set of 19's sitting on a set of 235/35/19 Achilles.

    Thanks for the advice guys, I do appreciate it.

    Im probably in the minority but unless it is fully slammed, 20s will look **** ... and I think we should all leave the "half your wheel in your arches" look to the dubbers ...

    *braces for huge disagreement*

    You're quite right - 20" wheels on an A/S3 needs airbags, or very brave coils. As NHN said, check out N8's thread to see how it should look.

    Depends on what size. 8.5 is best with 215/30 or 225/30, but you need LOWs to pull 20"s off. I'll take some pics of mine on the new wheels.

    They do look pretty bad ass, but need Audi caps. Seeing Merc on Audi is just plain wrong.

    I agree Wuta... however trying to get hold of Audi caps that fit is turning out to be a problem
