    Have a look here.

    The wheels are 5 x 114.3 whereas the car is 5 x 112
    The wobble bolts have loose collars which enable them to fit different wheel fitments.

    Mods, can this be made into a sticky and everyone can update as they fit their own wheels.

    Those RS6 reps dont look like they do on an RS6/5/6/7 is the offset dramatically different? I guess they are 21" on the bigger cars too :-/

    Decided to get the S3 C0Z alloys powder coated in anthracite matte. Should be finished tomorrow, pictures to follow. I think the polished / gloss anthracite of the C0Z is a bit messy and they are a bugger to keep maintained, any hint of a kerb and the polished surface is ruined. Hope I made the right decision :laugh:

    just a quick question if I was going to buy a new set of wheels 18 or 19" would the car look right with it not being lowered or is lowering pretty much a must when you change the wheels to aftermarket?

    thanks

    Do you have an S3/Sline? You'd probably get away with it if you do, just....
    Any other suspension setup and you'd want to go lower. But then again you have room to lower on Sline & S3 suspension and it will look better

    sorry its an s3. yeah what happened is I have curbed the diamond cut alloy on my wheel today and im just weighing up the option. I don't really want to go down the lowering route but if I have to I have to.

    thanks

    Just got my S3 in monsoon gray, and am thinking of adding these wheels http://www.oewheelsllc.com/Wheels_3/Wheels-for-Audi_3/R8_5
    I feel like the gunmetal would look great with the gray, but am curious if anyone has seen or has pictures of an S3 with these wheels. Would love to see some pics before purchasing the wheels.

    Cheers
