    Question wheel & suspenion help :)

    hi, im after changing my wheels on my 2004 a4 tdi (130)

    but im fancying either mercedes wheels or porsche ones.. will these just fit straight on or do i need adapters? also im thinking of sticking to 18's or do i go for 19's?

    also im going to lower the car on coilovers, how low can i go without it catchin or rubbing.

    Thanks

    The Porsche wheels will need adaptors but depending on what Merc wheels you get they should go straight on.

    18's will be the more comfortable option and also better for handling.

    That's the joy of coilovers, adjust them until it rubs then wind them back up slightly.

    a carefully planned ET & tyre size and you can go pretty much as low as you'd want.

    Et 35 will fill the arch and you can go quite low but anything below 35 and you may need more planning and work depends on how low you want to go
