Like the title says, will 18"x9" et30-35 alloys fit on the S3 without any running issues?
9 might be a little on front, but nothing 10-15mm spacer wouldn't solve
mine only just clear with 9j rim on et27 i have coilovers aswell not sure if that makes anydifference on the inside clearance, dont think it does??
thats the front
rears theres loads of room im on et12 with the 9j but tyres are streched
Refuse to use spacers mate.
Thanks kev, so its just the front thats the worry then. What alloys you running again kev?
Why refuse to use spacers?
If you use hubcentric well made ones... there are no problems involved
Correct, I've tracked my S3 running spacers all round, no problems at all.
Ive got 15mm rears and 10mm fronts and everything is fine.
Due to weight, love the look of wheels spaced out but i dont want the excess unsprung weight they bring.
If you get Aluminium ones, they are not that heavy, wider wheels are heavier also lol, go for 8" wide and space them out, job done. :thumbsup:
im using audi oe speedlines off the newer models now.
as for unsprung weight in real life driving your hardly notice the difference tbh especially 10-15mm alloy ones. the h+r ones are very light i had 25mm previosly and were fine.
The reason i wanted 9" wide was due to the design of the alloy, was looking at Rota GTR's and to get the concaved look the need to be 9", unfortunately they dont do my fitment
When you use spacers it wears your wheel bearings quicker!!
