    Hi all, I am planning to buy a new set of rims for my 2014 A3 Saloon, I'm just wondering what is the best size to go for without having to change anything else, thank you!

    on my door card the PSI tyre specs go to 19" so I would assume all is good up until this size, but am sure someone with more experience with larger wheels will be able to help.
    I have a 2014 A3 Sportback

    You could go up to 20" if you didn't mind comfort loss, though I never drove an A3/S3 with 20" wheels myself.

    This is an example of 20x8.5 on a S3 Saloon.

    Personally, If comfort is paramount for you, 18" max assuming you do not have mag ride. 19" look great but will give a stiffer ride. If you do not buy Audi wheels you will generally have to buy tapered wheel bolts and hub rings. Here is a pic of my 2017 S3 mag ride with 19" Hartmann rims that use Audi existing radius wheel bolts

    Thank you for your help guys, I think I’m going to go with 18” as the comfort is something I’d definitely like to keep, only running 16” at the moment so should make a massive difference
