    Ride with 19's?

    I'm thinking of replacing my 18's (OEM speedlines on an S3 8P) with a set of 19" rotors (probably replicas). I currently have std suspension with H&R front springs.

    Has anyone done this? Is there any noticeable difference in ride quality as I find it fairly stiff / bumpy already (compared to previous Audis)?

    Just front springs? Why?

    on 19s will look like a truck if not lowered properly. I've 19" bbs ch on my s3 with 235/35/19 Pirelli p zero tyres.

    Ride is hard but not more so than standard.

    19" CHs, rotors, Speedlines and soon "others" here. Lowered on 25mm h and r same as Boydie and I think it looks awesome. Ride is a little firm but wouldn't have it any other way. :0))

    As Boydie says,if you do it properly,there's no reason why the ride should be hard or unpleasant,but done badly,it can really affect the way the car handles.

    That's what is recommended by H&R for facelift models as the front is noticeably higher than the rear from the factory.
