    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?

    hey guys this seems like the thread was wondering if you could recommend some alloys 18's 19's or 20's that i could possibly go dual colour on ( car colour on insdie black on outside kind of thing)

    And had the old wheels refurb'd at Bourne Powder Coaters and now have my winter tyres fitted to these -

    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.
