Sorry to bring up an old(ish) thread but i need an answer and can't see it was posted before...I just bought rs4 reps...lookin to put 225/40/18 on them and going to be lowered on 55mm H&R's, its has et35 and 8j wide, current wheels are 205/55/16 6J et50...will this rub or not? Thanks in advance
Sorry I thought with different et it may be a different answer
Nope, if you read it carefully, and i know its difficult to get your head around it, the lowest number offset you can go without insanely stretching tyres is ET45.
You could try stretching 215's or 205's on there to get the tread inside the arch, but personally i think stretch looks awful and isnt safe for the way i drive cars
Thanks...would it matter if the car wasn't lowered? I hope this isn't a stupid question
Looks like I will have some wheels to sell, thanks
