My 18inch on my white 2012 a3.
These wheels, What are they?? are they 18s or 19s also?
I'm in need of a full refurb on all four of my S3 (58 plate 8P3) alloy wheels and was wondering if anyone knows of a reputable refurbisher in the Manchester/Stockport /Cheshire area?
I believe N8 isnt too far from there... send him a pm and see what he might be able to sort out for you
Cheers Ash. Will do.
Has anybody got Golf R alloys on their A3? Ive had a look through this thread but there are 60 odd pages.
Notbseen it done yet but i have seen mk5monzas they looked good and fitted alright
Going to pick up an OEM set of these tomorrow.......Fingers crossed they suite the car.
ill be eagarly awaiting pics : should look the dogs
So sorry ASN, my excitement turned to inevitable disappointment this morning when going to look at the "genuine" Golf / Scirocco R wheels. The center caps told me all I needed to know.....
Anyway, a good price was agreed and I decided id take them none the less. They look pretty smart and the tyres are 1 Mitchelin, 1 Conti and 2 Khumo all with plenty of tread. Only 2 scuffs, the worst being in the above photo.
Here they are on my car. Before I get slated, its not an A3 / Q7 concept hybrid. Its going on sportlines in the summer.
So now I have TWO sets of reps. Plan is ill swap the tyres off my old RS4 reps as these are brand new, and keep the Golf R's for now.
Not the win I was expecting but i'm happy them.
Now I've got to take off the bumper to fix a leaky water bottle then its off to the hospital to be treated for hypothermia. :icon_thumright:
Looks alright fella
Does anyone have any pictures of Rota Grids? Any size, just state
Or any pictures of 3SDM 0.01 or 0.05 etc.
Still umming and arring over which wheels to get.
Got to be lowered yet as well.
hello everyone, I will wish to have the Name of hisrims and the name of the completion I like
Hello, nobody to give me the name of its rims andthe color too
take it easy noob. peeps around here will answer. it just take alittle time. I am not a fan of reps but looking at that picture they appear to be HRE P40 reps and bmw posers love them. they do look good but the originals are the way to go. VMR wheels makes em. The original 19 in two tone is one of my favorites

Hi guys, looking for a bit of info on a set of wheels I''ve picked up. I've got an 09 plate 1.9tdi sport and I've purchased some BBS LM reps, and the specs are 5x112 et 45 9J all round. Planning on running 225 40 18 tyres all round, should these be a good fit with no rubbing?
Any info would be great
depending on how low you are. if you needed more clearance, you can safely go with 215/40/18 if you wanted
A few of my A3 on 19" Bentley monoblocks.
cheers mate, only at standard height at the moment but was considering just lowering on springs. Using it as a daily so don't want it to be stupidly low so hoping I should be fine as I am
Just look through all the posts in this thread mate
Recent shots of my S3 with genuine BBS CH 19" ET50
19" RS4 style
or, my personal favourite from http://www.audi-sport.net/vb/a3-s3-sportback-8p-chassis/105296-job-done.html#post1081055
Here is a quick one of mine, will get some better shots at the weekend but just found this on my gopro.

I have 18''x8,5'' ET47 Ronals and I'm looking tyres for them.
Does 235/45/18'' tyres fit to 2007 3.2l Quattro (stock suspension) with out rubbing or is it a hopeless task?
And if these don't fit I guess that the optimal specs would be 225/40?
Only reason to consider these tyre dimensions are that i could get them dirt cheap
Thanks in advance!
Anyone got any pics and specs of bbs LM reps on a sportback? not sure on 19/18 or offset, deffinately wanting a staggered set as love the tucked front and little poke from the rears. Id love ledgit LM's however a good set of reps will do for now.
Would anyone want some 18" bbs ch?
Exactly the same as boydie posted but 18s and in anthracite et50 8j with tyres Â£800
Boydie that look's really nice! Are you running any spacers and are you lowered at all?
Thanks very much - yeah lowered 25mm on H&R springs
No spacers yet but thinking of 10mm up front maybe but the wheels are ET50 and sit pretty flush as it is.
Ooh i like that!
looks awesome!! Is this on standard suspension? What ET and J are they?
