    Hi guys... Im in the market for some more wheels for the a3 havent decided between 17's,18's or 19's yet though.

    I do like to do abit of hard driving from time to time...

    Whats wheels do you personally think suit 8l's best?

    Post picturea up.. I need inspiration lol. Ive had lm reps, bbs rs2's, porsche splits.

    I want to buy a set of wheels and actually be happy with them. So i can get on with other mods!

    theres loads of different 8L's on loads of different rims in the pics thread might help you make up your mind was what I was thinking.

    Dont know about weight but personnely I think the avus wheels, fat fives (RS6?), RS4/RSTT suit the 8L A3/S3 better than most, not a hugh fan of bbs lm/rs on the 8L A3/S3. What size discs do you run? leon brembos (323) fit under 17's, although spacers are sometimes required to clean the face of the caliper.

    Mmmmmmmmm. Team Dynamics Pro Race 1.2s!!! Delicious alloy flavour!

    I had a set of 18" RS6 reps... so heavy. Nasty unsprung weight!

    1.2s are good lightweight wheels.

    Super legs are nice. I had them 8 years ago on my Renault 5 GT Turbo. Trooper has bronze super legs on his S3 and they look good.

    MTMs are also very nice, Jojo is selling his.

    My list would be:-

    Bimoto's
    Bbs ch
    S4 avus
    Bbs rc's
    Rstt's
    S3 avus

    All the above look right IMO.

    I gotta say I usually prefer the oem look. Saw some VMR v710s rims on a S3 8L at Storm Development near Reading, looked really good but think the style might suit the 8Ps a little bit more.

    Looking at a new set for myself without blowing **** loads of cash. Currently got some 18" rs8 rep. Was thing about the scirocco reps, def not going for polished finish on rims any more.

    I thought you had ultraleggeras not super? Ultras are the ultimate for me, very motorsport and not oe at all.
