    Im in the middle of searching for new wheels for the A3

    want something different and eye catching so im trying to stay away from the OEM look and go for a euro style rim

    the likes of BBS, Keskin, Ronal etc...

    I found out that some of the older Merc AMG rims have the same PCD and the offset if fine for the A3

    pcd - 5x112
    et - 52

    the rears however are a massive 265/10.5"

    i can see a problem occuring :sorry:

    anyone any idea what width i can get away with at the back without having to roll arches?

    i dont want to roll arches at all!!

    im getting FK coilovers too so im doubting this idea even more

    thanks for the help

    Can you get hold of 4 fronts? I presume the fronts were a more sensible size?

    yeah they are 8.5" or 8"

    going to be tricky enough to source 4 fronts

    plus they would prob need refurbed

    its soooooo tempting and looks well - i got a photochop done and i like them

    the rears are actually 9.5" which is better than i thought

    will 9.5" fit on the rear of the A3???
