    I like the size! The shot from the back looks great.

    I really do not like the actual wheels though

    I believe 19 should be the biggest size? :) 18' r not optimal size, I agree :)

    Mod bug is keep biting me in the ass, so it seems we are gonna make a rim change after my facelift! :) :)

    If the et was 40 or 45, I was going to buy these babies.. It would only cost 160 GBP over my current rim+tyre set.. Was a good deal though.. :(

    I personally prefer the look of 19's or 20's tucked, especially on the sb.

    you need thinner tyres to run 20s, 245 is too wide for the A3

    yes you should go back to 19s as they are more practical. I also dont like the tucked look, should just fill the arches properly

    225's and ET45 are the answer. I do like big wheels :)

    ****, they look huge!

    You definitely need air to pull 20s off!
