    want some new wheels for my s3, its either the new r32 wheels or the A8 diamond turned. 5x100 et 35, which wheel would look nicer? i want to put spacers on the rear too, whats the max i can go to? i've tried 10mm with my current wheels but i lose the hub location so had to settle for 5mm

    I think the A8 style wheel looks really cheap and tacky on anything other than an A8, the R32 style wheels would have to look a good bit better than that IMHO.

    Standard for me, any other VAG wheel just looks cheap and wrong.

    I agree with daz.

    spend a lil extra cash and avoid the Louis Vitton look of the handbag world.
