    What is the general opinion of the 18" S4 wheel going on an 8P A3?

    Gorgeous, set on ebay now, or ended last nite? Love the S4 rims, guy from S.A has them on here, but he has monster truck 4x4 stance.

    I know I bid on them using lotsnipe and missed out by £5!

    Can't make my mind up about them though - too flat, wheel centre too small?!?

    price dependent for me. i like 'em, but i think i'd prefer something else so unless they were going very cheap i'd save up for something different

    tbh i'm quite picky. but it's the owner's choice. if they like them then that's all that matters to me. i'm saying i would own them (unlike speedlines) but only if they were keenly priced. otherwise i'd be saving for something like R8 V10s, tho i'm wondering what Carrera S IIs would look like on an A3, and if they'd fit.

    I'm asking what YOU like! I think the R8 V10s look cheap, which Carrera S rims? The fronts will fit with adapters, rears = no chance :ninja:

    my rims are definitely my favourite wheel. they're the Audi OEM CH-a-likes

    then probably the S3 facelift wheels
    then probably the TT-S/S5 wheels

    i think the new Gallardo wheels would look gorgeous, but way too pricey and therefore not worth it. i'm with you on BLQs. don't really like them, apart from on one Mk 4 Golf i saw in PVW.

    generally not a fan of aftermarket wheels.

    lol i know 11 inch wide wheels won't fit on an A3

    yeah lol. no offence, but really not a fan of that tucked under the arches look, which i'd imagine you need if you're rocking 20s.

    oh, and ride comfort is of SOME importance to me. not the be all and end all, but i'd like to have a little give lol

    Thats fair enough man, but in all fairness, my friend Karl has 20x9 Kahns on a 235/30/20 same as size as that TT, lowered on V-Maxx coilovers, and that ride is sublime, you wouldn't know it had big wheels on it at all, really a beautiful drive.

    i think 19s would be the upper limit for me, but i think the 18s i have fill the arches perfectly. once it's lowered and has some spacers fitted i think i'll be 100% happy with my boots
