    Yeah, I know the price difference is huge, but the S3 skirts are much better looking.

    I am unsure as if i was to put the A5 wheels on they would still look standard if you get me, where if i put the Roti's on would stand out.

    BTW would both these wheels fit okay an my A3 ?

    Does anyone know of any 8P's running 10.5J et50 on the rear?
    Obviously spacing will be required but do the sums add up to get a decent fit without arch rolling?

    I will do mate.
    I think it would require a lot of arch work to be honest

    The wheels I'm buying are 9's et58 I think & they poke around 5-6mm

    Should give you an idea of how much those will poke!

    ET58 is quite high, they won't clear the front strut with at least a 15mm spacer.

    Think you've got the offsets wrong there buddy. 9" ET58s will tuck into the arch loads, no poke. You'll want a 20mm spacer for poke on the rear anyway

    I've not measured the offsets, but the guy I'm having them off did use 20mm spacers, yes!
    I know they fit as they're coming from an 8p, going onto another 8p, he has included all spacers in the sale, so all is good!

    ET32, you'll need a 215, but your best going for a ET45 ;)

    You'd make your situation worse, the ET determines where the wheel sits in the arch, higher the number the more its sat in, the lower the number the more it sits out..
