I'm in need of a spare tire and rim for my A3...but I can't afford to pay $500 for one, and I can't reposed to one person I see on the classified add on this site . I guess because I haven't been a member long ... can someone please give me some advice ?

so I found a used rim and tire ....$400 plus $175 shipping ....these rims and tires must hold there value pretty good ....it does feel good to have a spare although I hope never to need it ...

Couldn't you just use a A2 wheel and tire? they are only a hundred bucks and would get you home. I got A3's on the front, and A2's on the read of my M35A2.

very good idea and that's probably true . wish I would have thought of that before I went in debit for that A3 wheel and tire ....I am still trying to figure what the best option is when I wear out the tread on the set I have now ...I would say there are at about 50% and I have got mixed reviews about Michelin and good year and on and on ...please everyone give me your opinion on the best tire that will fit my A3 ...

I think that's what Mission BBQ puts on all there A3's but I wonder how long they would last on pavement ? I drive my A3 almost every weekend and 99% of the time I'm on the pavement .

30 to 40,000 mi depending on the load on pavement.

Either the 395s or the 1100 equivalent, I can't remember the size offhand. The 395s do give you back the road speed you lose not having an overdrive trans though.
