    I'm looking to buy 18's for my standard suspension S3 sportback. I already have 4 virtually new 225/40/18 tyres ready for fitting (winter tyres on standard rims now) and "I think" I've decided on a design similar to this; [​IMG]
    Problem is there are several companies offering virtually the same thing just a slightly different twist, is anyone aware of any difference in quality between any of them as listed below (thinking secifically the quality of paint finish)? Would all of these fit with no rubbing at all?
    I'm swaying away from 3SDM as they are diamond cut and therefore more likely to blister after a couple of years use so therefore have a preference for a hyper silver type finish.

    3SDM - 18 x 8.5 et45 (also et40 available)
    0.01 Collection / 3SDM Wheels Co

    Zito - 18 x 8.5 et45
    NEW 18" ZITO 935 CSL GTS ALLOYS IN HYPER SILVER 8.5" et45, BM Autosport Ltd

    Dare NK1 - 18 X 8 et45
    DARE WHEELS - NK1 18x8.0 5x112 ET45 Hyper Silver

    Thanks greatly for reading and I appreciate any helpful comments.

    No idea about the quality, but I'd go for the 8" option with a 225 tyre unless you want them stretched?

    Thanks for the input, not a fan of stretched so looks like that limits my choice slightly!

    I'll second the advice above, 225 tyre isn't going to offer any protection to a 8.5" rim
