    Hi!
    Well i decided that is time for some changes on my s3
    and i would like to hear what you think:faint:

    I'm after lightweight set of 17'' lightweight rims and 235/45/17 grip tyres
    maybe even some semi slicks. I know the looks will be totally
    different than the 19'' but performance is the main priority right now!
    I think that 235 tyres looks perfect on lowered S3 and grip will increase a lil bit.
    If you got any pics of S3 with 17's than upload them please,cuz it's really hard to find!
    Car will also get some spacers for that little widened street look.

    Next thing is H&R ARB's!
    Are these worth to do or not and why?

    Tnx everyone!
    J.

    Going a slightly different route here with 9x18 TD 1.2 rims and 245x40 R888s.

    Why the 17s?

    ARB upgrades are one of the best and simplest suspension mods for the S3.
    Highly recommended.

    Hi.
    Rims that i'm after are some ultraleggera or alleggerita,...
    They need to be lightweight! Any other suggestions?

    Wow 245,that will be phat ass dude and the r888s are awesome!

    Why 17s? Because roads where i live are awfull plus i really like that low stance
    phat ass street racing look:sly:

    I'm glad to hear that S3Alex,i am ordering the arbs today!!!

    all these come in 17"'s

    check out a site called www.funkypower.com some nice rims on there. all the wheels on the site are the same so just pick a car make and check out the alloys section !
