    Hi,
    Been looking for a set of BBS LM alloys for my new A3 2008 sportback.
    I will be sticking to 18"... will these wheels fit OK?

    I have not seen a a3 with these on so worried they wont fit.

    A:think:

    depends on the width (J) and offset (ET)

    also the stud diameter/pattern

    consider fitment with tyres aswell

    the LM's need to be:

    PCD of 5x112
    ET of 45-55

    Are you planning on lowering the car perhaps on coilovers?

    18s might look a bit small for the A3 since the lm's are dished and the only way to pull them off on the car would to be having it on the deck!

    I have a photoshop of bbs lm's on a sportback on my laptop which i can send you this evening for a look

    here is a pic of my mates A4 with 19" BBS LM's on his A4 S-Line

    Hi,

    I just worried about the right quality aswell as the rubbing issues.
    I also believe tire cost will be more.

    Although if 19 are the way to go i might consider it.

    Is there any owners out there with BBS LM wheels on their A3?

    Boydie also has these and he has coilovers, looks great!

    yeah i have 19s and coilovers lowered 35mm all round

    the tyres are made by federal and were £100 each so not overly pricey in my opinion for 19" tyres

    LM's though will be in and around £2000 without tyres if you are buying new!
