    I'm sure its been asked here, I am looking to get a set of new wheels, since my tyres on stock 17s are almost done I'm looking to get a new set of wheels and tyres.
    I like the look of 19s but how practical are they, 18s don't look as nice but lighter and cheaper setup.

    Car is a dolphin grey A3 8p2 with coilovers to go on, got a satin black front grille and I'm not decided on color either.

    My initial thoughts were pro race 1.2 or oz superleggera, rs3 rotor (not sure on the weight of these especially the replicas).

    Help lol

    I have dolphin grey with 18 s3 rep wheels in silver. They look good.

    I agree they do look good but you need to drop it. 18s on a 3 door looks good

    VMR 710 are some very nice wheels! What color would suit on the dolphin grey? Silver or gunmetal?

    Guys got a question, I seen some wheels that I like, they are 19x8.5 et35, I'm hoping these will stick out enough not needing spacers. What tyres would be needed to clear things? I will need to get some springs also to pull it off as at the moment is on stock height:puke:

    I like the idea of lowering the car a bit. The only thing I hate is when I go through the speed bump,I have to do 5MPH or its gonna hurt my ass lol.This is the reason why I left my honda civic sport and move to A3 :))Maybe in the future I will just lower it 40mm.

    Satin black, silver, red, bronze, few colours would work tbh, all depends what your into and what you are trying to achieve ;)

    Ok I think I will stick with silver. Next question is would a 8.5 x 19 et 35 work and what tyres are needed to pull it off? I wont be running super low.

    Are you referring to the black CHs for sale on the web? I believe 8.5" along with a 35 offset will cause serious arch rubbing unless you run a lot of camber, which causes its own problems. I can fix you up with mint, genuine BBS CHs in silver, 8x19, ET 50 complete with tyres, perfect fitment for your A3. PM if interested.

    Too much hassle, you need ET45.
