    well yeah mate without hub adaptors the wheels aint guna fit

    ours stud pattern is 5x100 and need to convert it to 5x130..

    i think 19x10 on a et60 will fit with 40/45mm adaptors but not 100% sure.

    as mine 19x9 with 20mm spacers = a et of 15/et15

    and the 19x10 et60 with 45mm adaptors = a et of 15/et15

    correct me if im wrong??

    So, does anyone know for sure if the 10" wide rears will fit? And if they fit, will the difference in wheel width front to back affect the Haldex or anything like that?
    I'd be very interested to know and even more interested to see pics of anyone's car with 10" wide Porsche rears.

    I don't know 100% sure if they will fit, but if you can get 9" rims on the rear with ET35, then on 10" rim, ET20 offset will clear the suspension easily, then it's just a case of getting the correct tyre, with a bit of stretch, to match the rolling radius of the fronts, so you don't upset the Haldex system. I'm pretty sure the S3 rear arches out the box can take 255 section tyres without scrubbage.

    I'd like some pics of your current 19X9's though, and the 19x10s when you get them fitted!
