    19" alloys on lowered a3??

    Hello all,

    I am new to this forum but definately not new to modding!!

    I have a 2004 A3 tdi 3dr, just had it lowered(springs only) and I was wondering what size wheels I should go for?

    Was originally looking at 18s but Ive been offered a set of 19s at a good price - They are either 8 or 8.5j wide i think the tyres are 235/35/19.

    Any good in terms of rubbing/practicality??

    Thank you in advance

    If you get 19's with 8.5J, you will need 215/35/19 tyres to prevent major rubbing

    I'm down about 65mm and i only get the occasional rub with my 215's on 19's
