    I've done a bugger load of searching but can't find any pics, are there any floating around of an S3/A3 with 18" CHR or CH Black with the chrome lip?

    I want 19's but I'm not in a position at the moment to be buying new tyres and wheels and I can sell my OEM 18" S3's and use the hardly worn Conti SC3's, hence i'm considering the CHR or Ch Black Edition in 18".

    I really want new wheels so thinking that some 18" CHR/BE might cure my desires for a year or so until I can afford the 19's.
    i don't like the look of the silver 18" CH's on an 8P, wondering if I would like black/anthracite a bit better.

    Great looking car mate, what size and fit are your wheels and are they OEM or reps? They're quite concave in shape and thought that was only possible with really low et values like et25.

    Been looking through this thread loads and still can't decide what wheels to go for, was first thinking 3SDM or Alphards but I now want to go with some 19's instead. Apart from Bentleys what else is there that's 19" and wide that will fit without too much hassle?

    I have a '04 A3 2.0TDI Sport... Anyone know what stud pattern that is? also, seeing as I have just got new tyres I would quite like to keep to the same size rim so i dont have to go out and get a new set of tyres.. I know my tyre size, but not the appropriate rim size anyone know what size rim accommodates a 225/45ZR17 tyre?

    have you read through this thread? Is this a wind up?

    ok to answer your 2 questions.... stud pattern is 5x112
    your rim size is 17... the clue was in the tyre size 224/45/R17

    also if you still need to ask questions i suggest you use a search tool called google that can find you the simple answers. alternatively follow the instructions on this thread: http://www.audi-sport.net/vb/a3-s3-sportback-8p-chassis/161897-how-search-your-own-answers.html
    (by the way that thread is on the main page as a sticky)

    Thanks dude, appreciate that.

    I'm sure they only come in 17's though, wouldn't want to run 17's personally unless on air :shrug:
    I plan on 19's for sure :)

    I'm on air, and would never run 17"s, plus they wouldn't fit over my brakes :laugh: :ninja:
