    Hi,

    As above ^

    I'm stuck as to what wheels I want for my S3 looking for something to use with a big brake kit/power and being track focussed but in 19"

    Thanks

    I haven't any experience directly but I'm led to believe that team dynamics pro race are one of the best for brake clearance

    Yeah I beleive this is true aswell, However I perosnally think IMO that there is better wheels out there.

    Plus for 19" you have to get the Pro Race 1.3's..

    How big a brake kit do you want ? . You can get pretty big brakes under 18 inch wheels, The A3 isn't a really heavy car.
    Going to 19 inch wheels you will really limit your choice and it will cost you more to do. Plus it's unlikely to be any faster.
    With 19 inch wheels you would probably end up with a 235 tyre so less rubber on the road than an 18 inch solution.
    Alex looks like he has got it right with 18 inch lightweight wheels 245 tyres and a quality AP Racing BBK .
    Demon tweeks were doing a really good deal on Team Dynamics wheels the other week.They did have about 40% off, now it's something like 20-25%.
    Some other possible choice off Tyreleader.
