    Hi
    Iv recently just order at set of AP Coilovers for my A3 Sportback so decided I would also change my wheels.

    [​IMG]
    These are the wheels that are currently have fitted and how it sits.




    Im looking for wheels that have a bit of concave. Heres a photoshop iv done of some A5 alloys that i like.

    What I understand is the lower the ET the more concave the wheels will be. So I'm wondering whats the lowest I can go in terms of ET without getting any rubbing?

    Any feedback is welcome.

    any less and you need stupid amounts of stretch to accommodate for the stupid amount of alloy sticking out past the arch

    So the A5 alloys iv seen on eBay that are 18x8 ET42 wouldn't fit? I was thinking of wrapping them in some 215 40 18 tyres to get a bit of stretch.



    Will do mate.

    They probably would fit, they'll stick out maybe a few mm past the arch but 215 should be ok, could always go 205 for extra clearance.

    And I'm guessing you've got coilovers installed?

    From my experience in fitting 19" A5 Alloys, you wont be able to lower the car much due to the size and poke of the alloys.

    The alloys I'm after are 18". Think 19s would be too much.
