    a3 sline 19 " tyre size and wheel offset question

    I have an 09 tdi a3 sline and looking to put some 19" replica wheels on there and lower the suspension a little..

    Any idea what tyre size i should be looking at 225/35/19 or 235/35/19

    Also which offset is ET45 ok? Or do i need higher offset? (hard to get )

    Im looking to lower the car a little more but obviously dont want to wrect the ride with rubbing

    thanks for your advice

    225/35 for no rubbing issue when lowered, ET45 should be fine. N8's the man you want to talk to

    ET54 is usually standard, running stretch will ensure there is no rubbing, you will be chancing it with 225s.
