sick of poke mate .ruins wheels fast as you know .time for a change .
It will sit the same as your current but have 12mm clearance inside.
Yes exactly why im looking for new rims lol .Probably 18's or even 19' 8j speedline reps :0
I hate this poke the kerb shizzle
I hate the rep shizzle
N8, do you (or does anyone else) have a pic of an S3 (preferably black 3dr) on 19" Carrera S rims? Like these ones?
PORSCHE 997 19 CARRERA S BBS ALLOY WHEELS & TYRES | eBay
I've only seen them on 8Ls and a MkIV R32, but can't picture them on an 8P. It'd be the same hassle as using genuine R8s (rears are 11J) - you'd need 4x fronts (8J or 8.5J) and adapters to take them down from 5x130 to 5x112, but I just really like the wheels for some reason.
I've only got a pic of them on a grey Mk5, but yes you need to run 4 fronts, and 8s are gay thats why I sold the merc rims. Yes you'd need 15mm adapters.
There a set on pistonheads but the same porsche style ones quite cheap. I think they look good but think you would need some low low to pull them off.
I figured there wouldn't be any pics... not sure I want to risk buying a set and going to the hassle of getting spacers etc just to find they look like ****. I'd have to get the 8.5s off a 911 rather than the Cayman/Boxster 8s then.
Could any one do a decent photoshop maybe?
anyone know where i can get a decent set of 19" LM Reps? (cant really afford real ones)
Don't really work with the A3 offset either.
Got a new set of 18" LM reps for sale next week
pm me how much you going to want for them
that is all
and we say no more.
Mate they are awsome .19s would be unbelievable
Ian you are just a porn star

Audi R8 V10 18" alloys on Audi A3 8P
What you think?
does anyone have any pictures of a3s on BMW rims? Was thinking of the concave m-series ones.. Thought it could be a offset issue though? Or similar to these..
No as the offsets are too low.
all sex ian.
fark you is all i can say lol
If they werent as wide, say 8" would they not still work?
Perhaps to prevent the constant wheel questions N8 you could knock up a little guide for the FAQ thread.
Or start a stance thread where people can state their suspension/wheel set up
Check with VMR (Velocity Motoring) my old VB3s were BMW reps and they have other wheels too in Audi fitment. You don't get as much of a deep dish because of the narrower wheel though.
These are the ones I have on right now.... Miro Type 111.
more vmr wheels..
sorta just look like reps...
But the real thing will likely eat your fenders and have the suspension for seconds.
still tempting... if i find someone with them when my cars dropped then il have a trial fit at least
Swapped my vmr's for some maybach's.it will be dropped soon
I want maybachs

What spacers and tyres you running?
They are 225 (i think) falkens with 20mm spacers.could do 25mm on the rear i recon.Ive got a week off in a few weeks so im gonna clean it up and post some proper pics,not off my iphone.Once its lowered its going to look insane.
Did you sort your clutch out in the end? Yours is the only one ever to slip off a stage 1
I cant believe it slipped either.yep,got a garage near me to sort it,handles 340hp give or take easily,RS4/Sachs clutch system.payed a hell of allot less than what people where quoting me.
Get some better pics up of these maybachs please
Hi guys!! First time on the site and i love it!!I work at Audi as a technician, Ive got a 57 plate A3 2.0TDI 170, ive lowered her about 80mm, im looking for rims and have my eye on the OEM anthracite RS4 style rims, 18"'s fitted to the black edition A3's, or the 19" black edition TT's, ive tried a set of 19x9j's but the they rub on the inside! What are you guys using to fit 19's on?? Im assuming most of them are 9j's?? Ive spaced my rears out 10mm already and i dont know what o do? Or just go with the 18's.... After some help if anyone can?? Cheers guys, Josh
Welcome to the forum. Do you know the et and offset of those 19x9? Is the rubbing just at the rear or all around?
If just the rear might be the inner arch screw so remove that. Could be rubbing due to the spacers as well.
I'm sure more of he clued up guys will be able to help you sort this out.
