Just found a nice set of A3 rims that are 18x7.5J with an offset of 51. Think I’m going to go for them. Only question now is getting rid of the steelies, they’ve got 4 pretty new tyres on so I’d like to see a little bit of money back, anyone got any suggestions or is it an eBay job?

Just put the 8J ET35s on so thought I'd update in case anyone needs to know in future. It just catches on the door but only about an inch off being fully open anyway so no big deal. Poke a bit at the front but still look nice imo

Well aware it needs lowering (I'll get there) but reckon it looks nice as is

Looks nice mat
Once it’s lowered I don’t think the poke will look as bad, will look more flush

Similar colour to mine mate Image
