So you like?

Dont think their too complicated for the car?

I just dont want to copy the rest of the CK lot... looking for something different but nice.

The car hasn`t even got the S-line exterior package and looks banging!!!

Love those wheels!

usually too many spokes on wheels spoil the look of audi's but you got it spot on there mate

In my opinion the BBS CK is pretty much perfect for the A3.

When I can get the money together, that's what I'm looking for.

or these http://www.workwheelsusa.com/product.php?category=27&wheel=78

but max 18" i think either 7.5 or 8.5j and you can choose custom pcd

and also choose size of dish i think

a guy in the wheel shop near me reckoned £1700 for 4 wheels no tyres in 8.5jx18" 112 pcd

but ive been finding them quite a bit cheaper on net.. i think they will look seruious!!!:hubbahubba:

and theyre different, i just love the jap look with wheels.. like evos n skylines..

I would go with S3RYE and the Emotion XT-7s

I always think their is a danger with wheels looking like Halfords VX Nova specials and BBS just dont do it for me. they always look cheap IMHO.
I dont think you can beat the audi 19" RS4s
The only problem as i found out when i curbed a brand new TT the other week on a test drive :yes: is that the spokes stick out further than the rim so a light curbing smashes the spokes off...( cost me £500 insurance excess for a five min test drive) :laugh:

just a quick question guys, are you using photoshop to do that? if so are you also using photoshop to lower it too?, i can mange to lower it using the MOVE TOOL, but how do you get the road surface to blend?, or is the another method to do this?

End of the day mate, its your choice, you will be driving the car every day so what you think looks best is what matters.

You have excellent choices of wheel above - just up to you to buy them and put some decent rubber on them!

The issue with the CK is the offset if you plan to lower the car - I think they are low 40's or high 30's offset. combine that with lowering and you may get rubbing.

Ideally you want a wheel which is around ET50 offset like the BBS CH or get the wheels you buy and see if you can get them machined.

The choice........ is yours!!

I get you man... just that with the wheels being one of the most expensive mods on the car... you have to get it right....

With regards to the CK air 2 their are 8x19 et 44 same as the CK1 which pwmotorsports are offering.
