    I think they look nice, but a little too big and 'fiddly' ..

    wider spokes look better on a3's i think! =]

    They look alright, in a 'bling' stylee.
    But they're gonna look really daft with weedy little discs behind them.
    I note the photoshop you've done has HUGE discs!

    sorry guys like i said only a quick jobby:)

    i just nicked the alloys straight from an r8 which is why it has huge discs!!!

    and yes they do look rather big the replicas i have seen are usually 18's

    i do like the alloys but not sure if they suit!

    Dont like the style of rim on the A3 at all - A3's suit chunky, non chrome rims

    stilts i think the term 4x4 is more suiting and yes it was only a two minute photoshop

    they are diamond cut not chrome but i think i am being put of these more every time i look at them!!!! :)

    now i have to think what else to get? hmmm

    No it aint. My friend had A4 with 20" 245/30/20s with Tein coilovers it was the smoothest ride I've ever been in

    ok haven felt the ride myself so i will take your word:icon_thumright:
    haven thought about lowering it yet! which is another issue with larger wheels

    bit undecided at the mo about wheels sizes and lowering!:sorry:

    Its all depending on what you want kettle and how much you can afford! My philosophy is do it properly, or don't do it at all...:thrashi:

    But that's not a level playing field, as he's changed the springs.
    On standard springs, 20" wheels will give a harsher ride.

    Yeah good point. Hence why to avoid springs, and get coilovers, buy once not twice, if you're gonna do something, do it properly, believe me I've learnt the hard way.
