Your observation is correct! In the photo the NT01 is unmounted. However, after mounting on the same rims 18x10, the results were the same. On identical rims the RS3's appear stretched while the NT01 appear wider than the rim. Also fender gaps were reduced significantly after switching from RS3's to NT01's. It is also now a struggle to fit NT01 tires 4 across in back seat, where as the RS3's had room to spare.
