    Staggered wheel fitment question

    Hi,

    My a3 is currently lowered 80mm on coilovers, and I am looking at getting 19" wheels. The ones I like are 8.5x19 et45 front with 225-35-19 tyres and 9.5x19" et40 with 235-35-19, do I have any chance of the rears fitting? How much work will it take to fit?

    max you want to fit on the rears are 9x19 with 225/35/19 on them
    best fit would be 8x19 with 225/35/19 on the et40

    i dont think the 9.5x19 with 223/35 will fit at all even with camber adjustments

    Nope no pm?

    I don't know what to do as the wheel is available in 8.5 et 35 and 42 so I could just go lower offset for the rear but either way I would probably be getting the arches rolled and rears pulled so think I might as well go for it?

    Any ideas? I want to order the wheels but not if they will constantly rub even after rolling/pulling of arches or if I have to raise the ride height too much!

    Rears will poke, you'll need a 225 tyre to have any chance of fitting them. Probably gunna rub like a ***** to be honest!
