    hi all ive got a audi A3 1.8t and am currently stripping her and gonna fit a half cage with a few other bots and bobs etc ;)

    she currently sits on 18x8/8.5s rs6 style wheels with jamex coilovers looks great but the wheels are very heavy and a good 18" tyre is very expensive when compared to a 17"

    i would be torn beetween a 225/40/18 or a 225/45/17 depending on wheel choice im after handleing more than anything just wondering what wheels people might recomend this is a track orientated car but its also my daily so want a balance of performance and style ...........

    thanks

    I run these 17's winter Ronal TT six spoke with 225 45 17 tyres

    and these 18's for the other 8 months (notice i didn't say summer !) BBS RS2 with 225 40 18 tyres

    the car handles and rides better on the 17's but they are so much heavier than the BBS's i think the Ronal are forged and very strong which i why they make a great winter wheel as they can handle a few light knocks and **** the winter roads turn up


    i think the car looks far better on the 18's


    i would avoid after martket wheels unless you can afford OZ or another good make as cheaper makes don't last and stick to OEM wheels
