As in title could anyone show me a pic of an audi a3 8p 3dr on Audi fat five rims plz?
I've been looking for the same pic, I think they would look awesome as they suit the similarly slab sided mk4 and Bora very well indeed
If you are looking at the ones on E38, I think they are well overpriced!
treat me to a pic of the fat fives please not a big wheel whore but im curious
are we talking about TT Comps here?
No fat fives are off the A6 there's a set up for sale on edition 38
ahh rite my mistake
Stolen from a for sale thread, but these are Fat Fives:
Would look pretty sweet on an A3 I think but could only find a pic of them on a 5dr:
they look sweet im likeing those alot and so easy to keep clean in the winter!
For Sale: WTS set of OEM 18x8.5 Audi 8L euro Flat Five ET 45
Defo a good fit!
they look sick. i think they would suit a small engin a3 as the disks are hidden they fill the space well. there very much like the s-line ones
Yes thats what makes them cool, they look similar but different! Compared to the OEM S line wheels they are half inch wider, 9mm lower offset so stick out further. This coupled together means they sit around 23mm closer to the arch which is just about perfect. Because of the extra width the standard 225's sit nicer but look even better with 215's on.
add to my wish list please
I like the look of those, didnt think they would suit but strangely they do!
seems i have started something here, haha, im wanting to get my hand on a set of these or some rs6 wheels like the ones on dec's black a3 which looks similar to mine, i have the 05 plate 2.0 FSI 3dr and want to keep my mods subtle.
also i do agree with lee_r yes i have been looking on edition too and they are very pricey but what you would expect as them seem to be very rare :S
get some reps may be ?
weren't fat fives optionat extras on the 8P1s? i remember them being in the brouchure when the 1.6 was ordered
Theres an 8P1 the same as mine (but standard) at work with TT comps on, doesnt look like they have been changed but could be wrong, maybe thats what your thinking of rather than the Fat Fives?
Thanks dude, mine are 8.5" wide, offset et38 all round, so the Fat Fives with et45 would probably be a safer bet to go with unless you get tyres with stretch!
i'm failing to appreciate the difference...
Think TT Comps went up to 17" max, not 18"
Fat Fives have more of a flat face with straight spokes, whereas the TT Comp ones are bent like this:
yep i see the difference now mate
I've just bought a set for my new winters. Wearing 215/40/18s. Not 3 door, but oh well
I used to like my wheels but these fat fives make my s-lines look like a pile of anorexic poo.
N8 You bitch!
AAArrrgggghhhhh! I need these wheels in my life, they are amazin, i have started a fat fives appreciation thread, lol, i am still yet to see a 3dr a3 with fat fives on and need that to be me, or failing that i also fancy the rs6 wheels which look equally effective!
Why? I think they look alright
When i bought an A3 3.2 sport it has fat 5s on but not the best pic
they arent fat 5's they are the 17" optional sport wheels. Fat 5's were 18" and only come on the A6
Sorry my mistake
