Hello everyone, I'm considering fitting a set of after-market alloys to my Audi A3 and I'd like some advice as to what might be worth purchasing from those of you that have knowledge/ experience with this topic. I've posted a picture below of my A3 (click image to see larger photo) and it's current wheels (15" standard Audi alloys) below. I'd like to go for a pretty much OEM look so I'm not going to consider things like alloys with chromed lip edges or black alloys etc. Whilst I'm sure this has become a common/ predictable modification on the A3 I'm really liking the idea of fitting a set of A8 style alloys as I think they'd suit the shape and colour of my car very well. If I was to buy these wheels how large would be considered too large for the car? I'd like a set of 18" wheels, and I have no intention of lowering the car, would these have any truly negative effects on the handling and ride comfort in comparison to the original wheels? will they rub on the cars arches? since the photo of my car was taken the front end has been extensively modified (will post up photos in another thread when it's finished) and as a result the new front bumper that I've had fitted is significantly lower. Would an 18" set of wheels increase the ride height by the 3" due to the increase in size? as this would be a bonus to me. Finally do you guys have any other wheels you think would suit my car specifically? I look forward to reading any replies, many thanks! Fahd.
