18” won’t clear the 8pot caliper.
Sure? Am sure there are rs3 on 18s and the b7 rs4 with the same calipers and almost same size disc at 375mm was available with 18inch wheels .

Careful choice of 18s and I’m sure they would fit.

The seller sent a pic with a rs3 wearing them, but I was not sure if it would fit..

A 2016 RS3 ?

8P RS3 could use 18” for winters as it’s a smaller caliper so no issues and it’s on the door sticker too.

No 18” option on 8V RS3 door sticker just 19”.

However if you’ve a picture with an RS3 wearing said alloys why ask the question ???

2016 yes, the pic is in the for sale ad but not if the actual alloys, the seller was trying to be helpful saying these are similar..

I also have a picture of a 2016 Rs3 wearing 18x9 wheels, I would expect it is very dependant on the barrel design and the inside disameter.

But not an actual picture of an RS3 wearing them though .........

Only you can decide whether to buy them then.

Will it fit.com is your friend. Type in your exsisting wheel and tyre set up and new and it will show you how it fits inside your wheel arch and if it will effect Speedo.
Then you will know what to oook for when buying

Given the higher profile would they also have issues with rubbing?

I doubt it would scrub, but it would be closer than it should be.
