    Ive been looking at different alloys for a little while now and always get close to buying but then think, what if they won’t look right! So I thought I’d get a tread going for people to post their photo of different wheels :icon thumright: I don’t mean just general photos... I mean fitted photos, so me and others can get the idea of how they look on the cars, and you you to show them off, cheers...

    Hadith, are the spacers just for looks or do you need them to clear the brakes.

    Ispiri FFR1D ET 42 with 7mm spacers front and 5mm spacers. I had 5mm spacers for front but still locked hard to calliper so 7mm is needed even though Ispiri say you don’t.

    Running the standard staggered tires.
    255/30/19 front
    235/35/19 rear

    Last picture my MSS track kit was just fitted (so still to settle in and drop a touch more)

    Raclingline R360 wheels for me too, but had them powder coated (as they don't come in black).
    19" 8.5J ET44 plus 5mm spacers front and rear.

    Black looks stunning and goes well with the blackout accents.

    Without being sure (I've got them on a Mk7 golf GTI PP) I'd hazard a guess that they would fit - they're listed as fitting on the website and I doubt BBS would need spacers to get them to fit.

    Actually referring to the wheels would have definitely helped lol. I'm referring to BBS SR 19x 8.5 ET 46. There is literally tons of room (over an inch?) behind the spokes to my GTI PP brakes (exactly the same as S3 brakes).

    Oh they're definitely different, but the gaps behind the spokes on my BBS SRs are absolutely massive. I'd also guess that (being BBS and TUV approved) as BBS list them as fitting the RS3, they'll fit with no spacers etc.

    I've never seen Ispiri wheels outside of Audi guys, what's good about them? Seems like they're very similar to more expensive brands like Vossen for less money?

    Personally I think the cars look great on the rotors with spacers. I would only upgrade wheels to a forged set from a proper manufacturer like OZ or BBS

    I think it looks great as is. With the extra offset is closes the gap to the guards. :thumbs up:

    Harith, do you have any more pictures showing full side of the car? Interested in these wheels and trying to get a feel for how they look on the saloon. More pics would be great :icon thumright:

    Find it a bit odd you’re taking an internet... when you drive your car you can’t see the wheels so I won’t bother :tearsofjoy:
