    hi guys im currently using audi s3 wheels on my A3 and want a change soon A> because i want something different and B. because they weigh the same as a ocean liner carrying camels gold and spices



    options i am thinking


    rota force..17x8 224 45 17 et35/48

    xxr 527 17x8.25 225 45 17 but et is 25 :unsure:

    could go for a 235 later in tyre history on either rim i like bulge no stretch thankyou


    anyone have an idea of other whees on the market in similar sizes...

    im finding it hard to find decent wheel choices in these sizes

    Nick @Prawn do the 225s or 235s hold up better on corners on the 17x8 mate??

    If you want light rims, OZ Racing and Team Dynamics are forged and very strong lightweight wheels.
