    As the title says could i fit these A3 wheels i have 205x45,17 or 215?

    Worried about it fouling the suspension and not interested in running spacers

    Thanks in advance
    Ben

    I have some 215 45 17 on ET56 a3 sport alloys, they just cleared the suspension legs by a few mm so it's close. It also looked like they had rubbed part of the arch liner away on the front but don't know if it was the wheels currently on car?

    I have put 15mm spacers on all round now as the wheels looked sunken into the arch, so now the are ET41.

    CraigG did the same with a set of BBS pescaras. They're ET53 out the box, 7.5x18, hes running 15mm spacers too iirc.

    Without the spacers the wheel would be very sunken in.

    You'll also need to change the tyres for 225/45r17's, or the arch will look empty.
