    there is no way 9.75" wheels will fit "nicely" on an A3.

    If you do a bit of arch pulling etc. anything can be made to fit, the width and the offset will poke quite a lot up front, the rears are much more spacious though.

    maybe ill ask my mate then to see if i can test fit the fronts to see what there like and go from there :) thanks for the advice and i thought the rear would be ok because of the amount of extra space
