alloy wheel fitment and lowering on A3


Registered User

I've recently bought a 2005 audi a3 2.0tdi SE and i was looking for alloys to start off the customising.I'm new to customising and have a few questions, so excuse the ignorance. I quite like the r8 style alloys and seem some on ebay the alloy wheel spec is (7.5 x 17" 5 x 112 et 35 ).will these be a straight fit onto the car? can I go up to 18" safely as well? I plan to lower the car in the next few months as well with 30mm spax lower spring kit. Will all this be a straight forward no hassle job?

Many thanks
