Default JDM wheel on a euro car. yay or nay!?

So im thinking of getting an Audi A3, im not too big on bbs wheels, but I was thinking maybe some Volks or Works on
the A3. Mixing JDM parts on a euro car, is it cool or not?!

I'm all for JDM wheels on a Euro car, either Volks, Work, even SSR.

^^^That is a badass looking ride.


You see a lot of Vdubs with Works or various other forged wheels. Remember you're no1337 if you don't pay $5k+ for you wheels

Yeah, but you gotta figure in the price of the full Oettinger bodykit, Alcon BBK, and a few other goodies. I've been following the buildup of this A3 in european car magazine.

Rock whatever wheels you want. I've never heard of any etiquette about where a wheel was made dictating what brands of automobiles can wear them. I have ASA JH8's on my e36 sedan. I think they look hawt.

I'd be more than happy to rock some TE-37s on my M3. Plus if people are going to be regional equipment snobs, better start with the tire manufacturers first! Doesn't BMW Motorsports racing use yokohama rubber?
