    Im not totally sure if the RS8 wheels look right on the S3.
    Has anyone got photos of them fitted ideally 19/20inch.
    Would 20inch fit without modding the arches ?

    If i do decide to buy this car i will probably go for the above or RS4 wheels but........i tend to think there a touch common and would rather go for something different.

    The kahn rss wheels look good any others im forgetting

    Thanks

    Can someone show me a pic of an RS8, or even just an RS8 wheel, there is no such thing as an RS8?! They are A8 wheels!!! or drian plugs as some of us call them. :p

    Here's a pic of mine on 19" Porsche reps anyway :cool:

    The A8's look pretty awful IMO, and 19" wheels ain't good for the car's handling. Unfortunately there's not that many wheels that suit the S3 otehr than the factory options. Although BBS always look good.

    Yes, it's a good thing they're not available anymore, makes me kind of original, also stops me from picking a set of lighter 18" wheels... Bling all the way. :cool:

    Shhhh :keule: good thing I have a 5th spare wheel :w00t:

    BBS CH's are common though, they look good of course, but every decent modded Golf has them.

    I'd forgotten about the sportecs!

    My choice would be:

    1. Sportecs
    2. MTM's
    3. BBS CH

    Nice work, only seen them at AMD for 1200 plus tyres. WOuld relly like to get a set. They start from 18" so did you have to lower yours much?
