    I've been through the search option and there is hundreds of Alloy wheel posts so I shouldnt really need another!

    I have a A3 Tdi 130 Sport - im keeping the standard suspension on it as ive had enough messing about with suspension set ups.

    I fancy 18" RS4 reps but I think they may be too harsh as I dont want a rock hard ride - they may also sit too high on a standard suspension. 17"s dont look as good but at the moment look the likeliest option.

    The other option is 17" S3 alloys but they dont look that great on Red A3s IMO.

    If anyone has any advice or even better pictures of A3 sports with standard suspension and various alloys put them up please:thumbsup:

    Having looked about online most Alloys go great with Black A3s but I just dont seem to find any that go that great with Red:salute:

    Thanks

    I bought my RS4 (new style) reps from Rochford Tyres, very pleased with them, standard suspension with 18" on. Tyres are low profile Toyos 225/40/R18 and the ride is perfectly fine, smooth and comfortable. Think they were about £660 in total for wheels and tyres

    Cheers all.

    They all look fine on 18s I thought maybe the 4x4 effect on standard suspension, before I got the car I had decided on old RS4s but now I have the A3 im not so sure - my budget is under £500 but I can pick what ever I fancy up normally quite cheaply through ebay etc. My mate refurbs them so thats not a problem.

    I quite fancied the New style RS4s as I figured they would look good on a red A3 and they do although my brakes will look a bit puny with them. The 5 spokes voorhees has on looks good too - and easy to clean:cool:

    Can you tell im having difficulty making my mind up.
