    Ive seen a set of A4 alloys that im interested in and was wondering if they would fit my a3.

    They are : 8x18 et43 5/112 and the tyres are 245/40zr18

    You need narrower tyres. 225/40/18 at least.

    They are fat tyres! As above, you want to get some stretching going on lol - I have 235/45/R17 on my stock alloys and hate them! When I get my new wheels I'm defo going for 19's with either 225 or maybe even 215 for a much better look!
