    most likely yes. I fitted 19 x 8.5J ET45 to my A3 at the weekend and they were just about flush with the arches. Looked ridiculous with sport suspension though so im waiting on springs being fitted.

    I'm not sure if the offsets on the S3 and A3 are different. pm N8 off here, he's the "wheel guru"
