    Well as my tyres were pretty much knackered i decided to treat myself to some new wheels and tyres.

    I bought some Inovit ST6's in 18", managed to get out of work early today so here are some piccies i manged to take in the daylight. Let me know what you think.

    Not bad, going for the Jap look huh? Could look a lot meaner if lowered and some spacers added.

    I was more going for the stealth look but the chrome edge is quite bling bling but i like it :)

    They did come with 3mm spacers but i think they need more like a 10-15mm spacer so will keep my eye out for some.

    Not sure about lowering the car but i will be looking into suspension later this year so maybe then.

    Will look much better slammed and spaced :thumbsup:

    I liked your wheels from your avatar and had been looking for some black wheels.
    Now that my tyres were in need of replacement i managed to find these including some falken ZE912 tyres for £600 including delivery. The tyres arnt the best in the world but form the reviews i found online they are not the worst either.

    So pretty pleased with results

    Hey Rob how's it going?

    Glad to see you finally managed to get some new wheels. They just don't look like 18's tho! I guess it's probably the design of them where the spokes turn in towards the rim.

    Get some spacers on there as well..it'll make a massive difference..the wheels look a bit lost in the rear arches at the moment :)

    My spacers are was 15mm front and 10mm rear Bob and are just right in my eyes. I reckon you may need some 20mm on the rear of yours tho.

    If you fancy it we could always try my 15mm on your rear and see what they look like? It wouldn't be too much hassle to do that.

    Each to their own but it was what i was looking for. Also for your first post not really the nicest first comment to make on the forum.

    Cheers for the support mate :)

    My thoughts exactly

    Just a pity mine isnt an MTM S3

    I wanted too go stealth to after seeing S3Bigandys 8P a while ago as he had these lovely MTM black alloys and it looked good. I almost went for some similar Inovit wheels that were more of a matt black but i like the way these match up with the paint work. Plus the chrome edge, although bling i think it does tie in with the cars other silver bits plus of course the Audi badge.

    Your will defo look good with some Black rims perhaps you could source the ones Andy had on his 8P for that full MTM ticket

    As i said each to their own so not annoyed by your comment as such really.

    As for the point it was your first post i said this cos most people would at least introduce themselves before making comments eg in the welcome section.

    So what Car and wheels you got then??

    i saw your thread with the OZ alloys and i think they will look good on your S3 in black i had some similar Team Dynamics ones on my old scooby.

    Plans for my car at the mo i think is gonna be suspension work to improve the handling as i think my bushes are wearing so ideal opportunity to make some upgrades once i have saved up some cash.

    After that i think i may look for something else as i will of had the S3 for 3 years then.

    yeah just read up, 16mm spacers will cost £25 a pair plus bolts on top.... i tried searching for the bolts inc kits but they are only on the larger sizes that would be too big for the S3.....

    wonder how much the bolts and locking nuts will cost...anyone any ideas?

I REALLY like them and you have now made me think seriously about the wheels i am very close to buying. (bit boring not orignal i was going to get the New RS4's in 19") But defo Good call with the Inovit's :applaus::arco::blackrs4:

    VrRob, when purchasing your spacers, you will need the correct bolts for your Inovit rims, they are not your standard VAG fitment bolts, you need the Jap type insert bolts(Don't know the technical name sorry). Thought I'd give it a mention before you go ordering your spacers.

    Hi mate, well done on purchasing the wheels they look fab! I recently bought a set 18" non-oem wheels for my S3 and got slated by most on here!:(

    As for the spacers, i bought some FK 30mm spacers for the rear of my Rocco from Venom and i can certainly vouch for them being top quality, very well made product. I almost didn't want to fit them 'cos i didn't wanna get them dirty, they look so nice!

    I think i will go 10mm at the front and 15mm at the rear. The bolts i got with the wheels are long so i think i should be ok without buying new ones.
