    So i doubt you can get the rears on for sure plus if you did and you had to space out the front, i gather you would need 70mm of spacers which would then fook your car up something chronic

    If the fronts are ET50 then you would need 15-20mm spacers depending on if they are 8.5 or 8 wide. As for the rears they are gonna be way too to wide, what you really need is another pair of fronts to use on the rear of yours.

    Should have mentioned of course that you will actually need hub adaptors from 5x100 to the porsche fitment of 5x130. H&R do these in the sort of width you will require to space the wheels out by (circa 20mm).

    All you need is some stud adaptors and 2 new rear wings. Not a massive job I would have thought

    12" rears are too wide, 10.5" wide is max on an S3 methinks, and even then, you will need 225 or 255 section tyres with a streeeetched look to clear the rear arches under load, either get a couple more fronts of scrap the idea dude.

    My favourite wheels on a A3/s3, look soo good.. congrats.

    Wouldnt you be up for some fabrication, rear arch work? how much out are they... they would look amazing on your car if you got them to fit, imagine the stance from the back it would look soo tough...every1 runs reps(no offence chaps)... u got some genuwins.. Make them fit! lol.

    yeah i understand what your saying they would look awesome,but financially its probably best to sell,god knows how much i would have to spend to get arches sorted spacers adapters tyres tracking etc,i am really gutted but probably will have to sell unless a suibtable and reasonably cheap option comes around,jojo fancy a swap.lol.

    Sell them as a set they will fetch more then buy what you want as singles or pairs, or do a deal with a Porsche breaker such as Porsche-apart or Jasmine.

    they are on edition 38 already mate as a complete set,for £800 surely they should fetch that as porsche sell them for £2500 brand new these have covered about 1000 miles i have been told.would love to fit them but its just gonna be too much of a ball ache to get the rears to fit so im trying to get rid of these and get another set with 8-10 inch rears,or flog the rears and get another set of fronts which i cant see happening tbh.

    TBH mate they are soo mad i dont think ull get 800 for them on edition. ive seen super wide sets like yours that are mirror polished went down to £400. better off trying ebay or porsche forums and aim for porsche owners.

    I still stand with my comment, make them fit, it will look awesome and a 1 off (correct me if im wrong)..

    Get intouch with the guy that Jason is talking about who put it on the MKIV, same chassis, PCD, Offset, and i dont think the arches are as wide as your S3... see how hard it actually was and how much it costs..

    "Youuu can doo eeet!!"

    If it really does take alot of effort/time/money then yeah sell off the rears, but good luck finding another set or another genuwine set of fronts that are in as good condition, of those that you already have sitting at home crying to go on your motor.

    Good luck either way but nothing is impossible.
