    Those 3sdm wheels look great. Where can you buy these wheels?

    More pictures are welcome

    Hi all, sold the S3 so I have my 19" BBS speedlines up for sale, with mild stretched 215/35/19 falken 452's, faces and rims are in good condition, backs need a refurb.

    **** pic, I know, but just giving an idea of what should be getting fitted next week. Wasn't wanting to fit them until the snow is passed, but might just risk it.

    Pretty sure that's the specs of standard S3 wheels, so they'll fit fine. You can throw on some spacers too, if you want them to sit more flush (take the ET down to 44).

    Speak to N8 about refurb, he's done plenty of Speedlines before so should be able to advise you on colour/finish etc.

    As for ebay, paying through paypal is the easiest and safest way, and your ATM withdrawal limit won't matter because it goes through as either a direct transfer, or as a puchase (I paid for my whole car with my Maestro). Not sure of the limits before you "verify" your account, but it only takes a day or two to sort that too.

    But the price 675 includes 4 tyres with plenty of tread left on them? not worth it?.. i just think 19's are too big.. but how much should i pay for 18" speedlines?

    Dry fitted the Speedlines today (no tyres, APR discs in place and R8 calipers just tied in place on the disc). They clear the calipers comfortably with 10mm spacers - so down at ET38 - and if a 9" wheel fits at ET41, then surely they'll fit under the arch at 8.5 and ET38? No tyres on, and car up on a lift so no tuck from the lowering, but they look like they stick out quite a bit. Could maybe get away with thinner spacers, maybe down to 8mm... any thoughts? Don't want to go down to 215 wide tyres, want to stick with 225/35s.

    8.5" rim at ET38 will stick the rim out by about 6 or 7 mm. A 215 would be safer at that ofset I reckon. Borderline on rubbing/ looking wrong.

    9" et41 fits inside the front arch ok. It isn't a super tuck but it should be fine. This is with a 215 tyre however.

    8.5" et38 is the same as 9" et44 (more or less). ie. is 3mm further in than the 9" et41.

    1. They are reps. 2. Black against diamond cut looks too harsh/cheap/tacky.

    Gotta say n8 I'm really not feeling the slammed look with those alloys, maybe if you took a shot at Normal ride height it would be more appealing to me...
    They are nice alloys, and those tyres look scary!

    That wheel is/was already feeling over-done, a bit "played out" (it optional on pretty much any Audi), then N8 rolls up and throws the twinkies on... nailed it, "TIS". Not 100% on the colour combo against the Akoya though.
