    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
