You would subtract 20mm for adaptors. Google A3 offset to find the stock wheel offset then use the calculator to compare (obviously you would need to put a stock wheel on the measure the difference but, if you have aftermarket alloys look for the width and ET and use that as a stock wheel).

Tyre size depends on how low you go, its better to check the wheel position before you get tyres if possible unless you can ask someone thats running a similar set-up.

MK4 wheels usually run offsets between 42 and 36. The BMW wheels I've put on have an ET of 41 and a 20mm adapter takes the offset to 21. The wheels sit flush with the front and nearly bang on with the rear. They're with 7.s's
