      Looks good. How’s the ride quality with the new setup?

      Looks like still enough room for wider tires and wheels. Those RS3's have much more space under there than the Golf R.

      Looks good, always liked these TTRS wheels.

      just as good as the stock 19s, I can't really tell ATM. tires have less than 100 miles on them, let's see how the sh*trelli tires fare after a few k miles.

      Definitely not. I took the OEM 235/35R19 off when my RS3 had 40 miles on it in exchange for 265/35R18.

      Agreed.

      Not my cup of tea either OP, but I'm glad you're happy! Happiness is in short supply these days...

      Looking forward to my own RS3 in ~ 6-7 months. Will also be going down to 18" wheels & 265/35-18 (heard 275 might fit?) tires.

      Those look sharp, but I would be cringing every time I hit a bump on those hoping my tire did not suddenly blow out.

      OP, I admire your guts posting a small car on 20s in TCL.

      I love an RS3 but I have to say something looks off. Kinda reminds me of a Matchbox car now....dunno if it's the size or the black paint and machined combo.

      the RS3 owners in this thread that downsized to 18s. That's a hardcore step right there.

      18s are much better with some meaty tires. I was going to get another set but I got these for a great price and could not say no. My winter setup is 245/45/18 on a 18x9, next set of wheels will be similar
