    Hi Guys

    Looking to buy some new wheels for my S3. I have seen some BBS CH wheels i want. I know there quite common now but i think they suit the car wheel.


    The wheels have a fitment of FRONT: 8j ET 42 and REAR: 9j ET 45.

    Will these fit the arches well?

    What tyres should i be looking to get to go on them?

    Has anyone got any pics with 9J wheels?

    Thanks

    Ryan

    A 9j with et45 will be very near flush with the rear arch I imagine!

    Are you lowered?

    No not yet, i was planning on either going on to H&R springs or just the front eibachs.

    Hoping the wheels should look good without lowering

    They will look good, its whether they will scrape on the rear arches or not!
