    I dont think youll get the results your wanting? you wont end up with RS4 style arches, its mostly done to roll out the flat piece at the end if the arch so you can have it sat muchos low on wide wheels, its a good look if you need it.

    I've had my front arches rolled to give a bit more clearance when driving with the air set low.

    You can pull the arches and there are various methods, including using an arch roller. I've seen people use baseball bats and phone books, but either way, the idea is to gently flare the arch out to accomodate wider wheels.

    Really like them wheels, not sure if they will be big enough for an A4, but you can always try. Would look different anyway, but be prepared to go super low to pull them off.

    May even look too small on an A3, but so long as you go super low, they should work.
