    After a set of alloys and winter tyres for my S3, first question will 17" fit?

    If not can anyone recommend / got any for sale.

    Doubt it mate... Calipers will be too big... Generally you cant go below what a car comes with as standard

    I believe 17s will fit, and its usually fine to go down a size or two depending on caliper clearance. From searching earlier 17s seem to be the min tho.

    Just had a look at mine and you will prob get away with 17's... It just all cones down to offset to clear they calipers

    Yes that sounds like a good idea. Ideally I'd want to go for 17" due to tyre cost really. I'll see what people have got going.

    I have the same question. I have 225/40 18" wheels on my A3 S Line. I want some winter wheels and tyres. It will be used around town for the wife to go to and from work.

    What wheels will fit, can I go for 16" or 17" wheels. Is it best to change them all or will just the front do?

    Any links to EBay would be appreciated

    Phil
