    Wheel advise and suggestions

    Snowed in today so on the search for some new wheels. I havent got much knowlage about wheels size and whats best without scrapping etc. My car has been lowerred on Eibach sportline 50mm springs.

    Currently i have 18" RS6 wheels and do scrape a bit with a full car but could be because of the offset and tyre width of 225's

    Could i go up to 19" with reducing the tyre width? Whats the best offset and tyre width without any problems?

    Thanks in advance
    I cant read, an i cant write. But thats ok! Cause im from the west country and i can drive a tractor!

    what about these:

    audi a4 tt vw golf t4 van 18" genuine bbs alloy wheels on eBay (end time 09-Dec-10 15:34:14 GMT)

    i spent about 2 weeks staring at these wheels, but i don't think they fit in with the theme of the car i'm going for. i reckon they'd look absolutely awesome on the right car, and they're fairly rare wheels too.

    S.

    PS - i'm guilty of harrassing N8 too
