    I've got the above car and I'm hoping to lower it with a set of H&R springs, I've been offered a set (5) of S3 alloys which have 3 brand new matching tyres plus they have been refurbished, the other tyre is new but a different make.

    Will these fit straight on Ok, the S3 has wider wings I gather?
    Also is £400 a bit steep for a set of these alloys, they are original AUDI and have the center caps and look as new. I need a set of tyres next spring anyhow, so I'm sort of justifying it to myself /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gif

    whats the make of the tyres?

    as long as your prepared to replace the non-matching tyres so that they do match, and the tyres are a decent brand, it sounds like a good deal to me.

    I think he mentioned 3 were Bridgestone and one was Pirelli, so even as my car does not have Awd it's still best to have them match all round, guess it does make sense but will make the deal actually cost an extra £100, maybe I'll try and get them for £350 all in then budget for a new tyre. Will they fit without any problems?
