Has anyone got 18” alloys on their S3 Saloon/Sedan? If so can you post some pics, I’ve got 19s at the moment but tyres are pretty pricey compared to 18s and I want some aftermarket wheels just don’t want them to look lost in the arches haha

Surely, the cost of buying a set of 18's will out way the cost of 19" tyres.

Each to their own, but I'd agree with you and say the cost of appearance by downsizing would outweigh the cost of tyres for me

My first post was maybe confusing (early morning brain freeze)

What I meant was it would be cheaper buying 19" Tyres for your current wheels, rather than going out and buying a set of 18" Wheels and tyres.

Very costly, just so next time the tyres were cheaper, as you'd only be buying 18" rather than 19".

19" tyres are expensive if you go for the Michelin, Goodyear etc premium ranges.

There are a some good tyres out there to be had for around the £100 mark.

I want to get some different alloys anyway I’m not a massive fan of the ones on there at the moment so would be cheaper to buy 18” alloys aswell so would end up being a cost saving there aswell

To give you an idea, here's my saloon on 18" S-lines, these are off a hatch/SB rather than a saloon so are 7.5 inch, not 8 inch.
