    Hi all,

    I'm currently looking to purchase some 18's for my 2003 S3 (8L) but just want to confirm what offset, PCD and tyre size I need.

    Thanks in advance for you help

    Don't mean to hijack, but would 18's with an offset of 33 be ok a lowered (20mm) S3 with standard calipers all round?

    Yeh should be fine, it's not a massive difference in offset.

    Am I going to needing / wanting spacers with the ET 35 offset?

    If so, what size?

    Thanks

    15mm rear and 10mm front should be fine
