    Hi all

    Ive left this a bit late, I was planning to get another set of wheels a couple of months ago but ran out of time.

    Ive standard 18 inch wheels on my S3 and want to get a set of 17s to fit with winter tyres.

    Audi recommend 205 17 50 s but Id be happy with 225 17 45s.

    [h=2]8P0601025C - any one know if these would fit the S3? They are 7.5x17, ET56[/h]
    Will all 17 inch A3 / A4 wheels fit?

    thanks

    I'm using 225/45 17 winter tyres on standard Mk2 TT 8" wide wheels.
    Sticker in the door well gives info on pressures for this tyre size.

    Thanks so mk TT wheels work as well.

    Any thoughts on the ET56 off set on the wheels I mentioned? The standard offset for the S3 (according to the blurb is between 43-50) the ET56 would technically move the wheel out 12mm nearer the arches.

    mmm Im thinking it might be easier to get 18 inch wheels that I know will fit like from a TT... will the A4 s-line wheels work as well?

    thanks
