As above, will these fit onto my car?
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
I hear you, definitely will be dropping it, not by much though.
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.
Look through N8's threads & that will answer your query
Link to threads please?
My search isnt working
You'll need a set of steps to climb in after fitting 20".......lol
20" rims on an a3 you will lose power pal ive lost abit on 19's, but i think it will look wicked mate
Someone at uni done this, Coulda sworn it sat higher than a Q7 lol
Haha, I was just about to say that it'll make it look like a Q7!
If you have rubber band tyres it will work
Would really need to be bagged though IMO
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.
235's are all good on mine
Ok just I'm on 215 and I get rub with passengers but I am v low
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.
Thanks again chaps!
I appreciate the feedback.
Hopefully the wheels will go on this thursday, also hoping to get myself a se of coilies.
PS-unfortunately bags are way way outta my price range here in RSA.
Also I have tried, result was not ideal, they are big for our cars.. 18's are small.. 19 is very nice..
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.

Lets see those pics if you don't mind N8
I'll take some soon brother
So I decided to go with 19's instead!
They suit the car i think mate, AMG reps ?
Indeed so, I manged to get hold of an OEM set but they hade some damage so I went with the reps.
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
