I have an 8p A3 S Line sportback on a 55 plate and have 18" S Line 5 Spokes on it which were fitted at factory and they don't rub at all......

they may catch, depends if you are going to lower it, i have the rs6 reps on my a3, with sport setup and no rubbing at all, i will be lowering mine soon so i will let you know, also, there is a screw underneath the wheel arch which people have taken out and just doing this has stopped the rubbing issue!
