    Hey guys, bit torn between these two sets of wheels! Anyone got info on quality ect that will help me make a decision?
    ImageUploadedByTapatalk1364496643.609670.jpg
    These will be 18 x 8.5 all round

    These would be staggered at 18 x 8 and 18 x 9 at the rear fill them arches!

    Any feed back would be appreciate, got an idea what they'd look like, just need help making a decision!

    Cheers, max

    Unless your dropping a fair bit if get the 3SDM 0.01.
    Also why not go staggered 8.5" front and 9.5" rear?

    I'm on weitec coilovers at the moment, lowered about 30mm from standard so got about another 30mm to play with, given once I've got the wider wheels on they'll fit. Will 9.5 on the rear fit nicely?

    I've seen 9.5" on the rear with a 30mm drop.
    I'd say any lower you'd need stretch/cambee

    I would personally go for the first set they look better and don't have a lip so would look a bigger, just my opinion. I can't comment on quality or fit though.

    with 9.5 stretch it will rub unless you run 215 35 0r 40.
    rim wise i would go for the bbs LM looking one

    I like the look of the second deep dish wheels but I would go darker inside! ;)

    Yea I really like both...the 0.01 do look really good on the a3, especially with its deep concave look! To be honest I want to try and stay away from stretching the tires that much if at all?!

    The red ones mine, make sure you get 215/35 on front and 225/35 on rear, depending how low you go will warrant weather or not you need to camber them in.

    Of the 2 pics you've posted, the left ones when it was on AP coilovers, dropped around 50mm and the right ones on air.
    I think you'll be fine with a 30mm drop, only time it's gonna rub is fully loaded with passengers under hard cornering.

    but you can get tehm in any width / offset direct from HRE, isnt that worth some of the price, im highly considering a set

    I can vouch for the quality of the 3sdm's, and they can be had cheap enough. This is with standard s-line suspension.

    Mine are 8.5j all round. Bought a set of 5, 2 months old with falkens, off a member here for £600 when he sold his a3.
