    Welcome mate

    S5 wheels look the dogs IMO.

    I seen some on a S5 and they look sweet.

    Unsure of how they would look on the S3 but looking at the wheels and car, think they'd look pretty good on the S3.

    Try photochopping and if you cant, im sure someone on here will be able to do it!

    They kind of look like R8 wheels so looking at a3/s3 with R8 wheels (which are more common) might give a good idea of what they look liek!

    i think they may be reps as I've been looking on the net and it seems as though the offset is 32...

    Still look awesome and the finish on them...... :hubbahubba:

    The offsets wrong for teh A3 on the second one and on the first one, it doesnt say.

    I seen these in person today - They dont look as good as i thought they would but in saying that - they were orginals and had a plain silver finsih - not the titanium look finish at the reps in the pic has...

    Nah no spacers or mods. When I first fitted them on I went on a long distance trip with a fair amount of luggage in the boot and the rears used to rub on dips and bumps. Even without the load any big enough dip or bump saw them catch and this on stock suspension. Realised the outer wall of the rears were catching slightly against the inside of the clips on the bumper on the underside of the wheelarches because half the clip sticks out further inside than the arches. Had the clips removed and problem solved. Hasnt effected the fit of the bumper either and alls been perfect ever since - done 26,000kms since the clips were removed. Btw my tyres are 235's. Next set I'll try 225's and put the clips back on.

    Thanks bud
    That little incline to get into the garage is a bother though. The only thing preventing me from dropping the car on H&R's. Still riding with stock springs and theres less than a finger space between the front valence and floor of the garage on entering.

    I believe they are 8J, ET 45

    Are they 225/35/19 or 235/35/19?

    I think I may be getting some, found some nice reps on Ebay!

    Those are genuine S6 wheels, yes 19's. They cost a fortune from Audi but i'm sure there are replicas avaialble, if not they will be soon!

    Not hard to see they are 20"s, they are HUGE :jump: Too big for UK roads though, 19s is biggest for A3 imo. :moa:

    i too are after some s5 alloys for my a3. I was told today by Audi you dont really want to go any larger then 18 due to them rubbing otherwise, and the offset is wrong. So i might just buy the 18inch reps instead. Way cheaper too.:yahoo:

    Its on air ride. 20"s are too big for some people. Have you got an Audi or a Pug?
