    yes i know,
    i've had a luck that i got some parts 2nd hand and kept the damage low :D

    but those really look good on a lowered a3/s3/rs3....maybe the clutch will have to wait haha

    So nice, I see this around swad all the time.

    They are 18's and at the min have 225/40 on the front and 225/35 on the rears, would those tyres work untill I could get them swapped for 215/40 front and 225/40 rears?

    Understand these are 19x9 ET 33...I guess I need arch work before these can fit?

    215/45 tires will still rub?

    I've got some BBS RK501s that are 18x9.0J on an ET32; and they fit with 235/40 no rubbing at all. Admittedly it's not dropped to the weeds, but it's not a 4x4 either. What makes you say that 19x9 ET33 won't fit an A3?

    They did a great job at just £35 per wheel (£42 inc vat).

    Quick question for you wheel experts. Where is the best place to get different coloured inserts for BBS wheels. Want to see what white inserts would look like on my Anthracite BBS CK's.

    Anyone running something similar to this? Looks smart, small alloys lowered on some nice thick tyres.

    Well avoid things like BBS Ch/Cks, the centre section is too chunky on smaller wheels. Similarly, anything with a lip will look even smaller. Something chunky like TT Comps, or something off an old A8 would probbaly work, but make sure they're 5x112 pcd.
