    Ok well after gliding through the last 57 pages i am still very very confused what to put on my Black 2007 (57 Plate) S3, it currently has the standard 18's on it, they will need rubber in a few thousand miles so i thought i might treat myself to new wheels and tyres at the same time depending on the deals.

    Its also currently on the standard suspension, i like the look of the cars on air ride but i would prefer to be able to have the handling so thats out of the question, so i think to ensure i can spend as much on the wheels and tyres as possible i will get some lowering springs for the moment until i can get some coliovers.

    So if you had 1k to spend on tyres and wheels what would it be and if you have pics that will be great, i would like to keep the look quite standard though :)

    Not sure what reps these are. Borrowed them off a mate to see if I'd like to run a 19 inch rim:

    Hi All,

    I have recently bought a 2007 8P Audi S3 and am looking to purchase some new alloy wheels to replace the standard 18" double arm alloy wheels that come with it.

    Would anyone be able to tell me if these one on ebay will fit mine? im a complete noob when it comes to buying alloy wheels.

    ebay wheels - 19" CADES BERN ALLOYS, 5x112 ET48, VAG FITMENT, VW, AUDI, GOLF, A3, S3, S4 | eBay

    Any advice will be appreciated.

    Thanks
    James
