    Absolutely spot on Simon..........gorgeous.

    Few questions, what tyres, 225 or 235 section and what make. Are you lowered on H&R's?. Any rubbing at rear if on 235's ?.

    Thanks.

    Wheels look superb, a real classy look, these have been 'calling' me for a long time now, must resist !!!

    The drop is perfect too.

    I have read good things about The Falken 452, they perform really well for a 'budget' priced tyre, I'd opt for these if I went down the 19" route keeping the oem with the premium tyres for any track outings.

    Let us know how they feel when the weather improves, cheers, Spin

    18's are for homos. You want 19's! You can have mine with nearly new 225/35 Conti's if you make the right offer...

    They look great! I'm tempted with a set of CK's in 19".
    Do you have anymore pics from the back/side on? Would help me with my decision.....

    Bear in mind that the CK's are ET44 offset for the A3/S3 and the CH's above are ET50 offset.

    Is that 5mm in or 5mm out?

    CK's will sit 6mm further out. They need to be run with 225 section tyres to avoid rubbing and the rear archliner screw removed i believe.
