    19" RS8 Alloys

    Hi

    I have just been told by a garage that my Alloys are rubbing on the inside of the arches. Has anyone else had this same problem with 19"??? They also advisied to get rid of them but i had to tell them to F*$k off.

    Hi, Thanks but the weird thing is its worse on one side. I think i'll get a second opinion from another garage.

    Hi mate, i had a similar problem on my old car, this is due to the 2 arches on eother side not being symetrical, any idea what the recommended offset for your rims are? the original? and what ET are the new rims that you've got
