    235 is too wide and will rub on insides... On 19s max I would try would be 225.

    How desperately do we need a sticky for wheel sizing in 8P?!!!!!!!!!!! We must be getting asked this question 10 times a day.

    Who would like to help me out with their wisdom and fill in some blanks. Their input will be immortalised in a sticky within the 8P section which heralds them as the Mac Daddgy G or rimmage!

    Something along the format of (or something better if you can think of it)....:

    Wheel sizes that will fit an 8P (assuming OEM ride height)

    OEM wheel specifics
    5 stud pattern, 112 Per centre diameter
    Anything else relevent (e.g. OEM ET range 50mm > XXmm)

    Assuming OEM ride height:

    7.5J
    Recommended ET Range: A- B
    Ride height recommended range: OEM - XXmm lowered
    Recommended tyre sizes: 225/40/18, 215/....

    8J
    Recommended ET Range: A- B
    Ride height recommended range: OEM - XXmm lowered
    Recommended tyre sizes: 225/40/18, 215/....

    8.5J
    Recommended ET Range: A- B
    Ride height recommended range: OEM - XXmm lowered
    Recommended tyre sizes: 235/35/19, 215/....

    9J
    Recommended ET Range: A- B
    Ride height recommended range: OEM - XXmm lowered
    Recommended tyre sizes: 225/40/18, 215/....

    Won't fit

    Details of any rim sizes that will categorically not fit: (e.g. 9.5J or above)
    List of OEM rims that won't fit A3 (TT-RS / A4 & A5 ET35's 19" / etc...)

    Troubleshooting & other info...
