    9 inch is too fat for a 52 offset, they catch the inside on the rears from what i can make out. If not they would be very very close!

    Could he get spacers or would that make the tyres catch the arches? :uhm:

    9's are wide, its the fronts you need to worry about especially with ET52, they will deffo hit the suspension struts. I have 9x19 ET41 rims and they JUST clear the struts, but they poke out. Id avoid 9" wide rims on a A3.

    thanks for the replies guys. the wheels were the multi spokes off the new tts. thought i would be different with having them on. But now i know why i havent seen any a3s with these wheels:(

    I think I remember someone on here trying to fit a set of these to his A3 and they would not fit.

    Ahh, If I knew they was OEM TT wheels I can categorically tell you they dont fit. I tried one on mine and they were ok when it was on the jack but once put back on the road it was touching all over the shop. I reckon they need 10-15mm spacers to fit but if you did that they would foul the arch lip. Its a no win unless you do some serious arch modding!

    Oh well back to the drawing board.:Flush:
    The A3 would look awesome with DTM arches
