    Audi A4 B6 19" Alloys - How Low Can I Go Without Rubbing?

    Hi all,

    How low can I go on 19" RS4 alloys without facing any rubbing issues? I obviously don't want to go right to the ground because of humps, and I'll also be putting on the Votex kit also.

    Any ideas?

    I have coil overs. I want it low enough where the top of the tyres are almost level with the arches, but I don't want to face any rubbing issues! I don't have 19" RS4 alloys yet, if I will be facing rubbing issues then I might have to stick with 18" alloys.

    All I would like to know is will I get any rubbing against the arches issue if I was to put on RS4 alloys with 235/35/19, if it was pretty low?

    Thank you CMD. Atleast now I could go ahead with buying a nice set of 19" RS4's without worrying about rubbing against the arches :D

    I've got 19's and weitec GT coilovers. The rears are wound all the way down and the fronts to match the height of the rears and I get no rubbing. You'll want to be slowing down for speed humps tho!! lol

    I've got entry level coilovers tbh mate FK AK, not the best I tell you as I didn't want to spend too much, but still does the job

    I'm looking to put spacers in aswell to get the wide look as mentioned in one of my threads.

    How about when the car is a full load, does it rub?

    Like others have said , you have to get it all fitted then adjust the coilovers until you are happy. Had the same thing with a mk4 Golf in the past, coilovers and 19's. I just wound it down until it rubbed , then wound it up a bit!

    Yeah I've had 5 up on B roads with my set up with no problems to speak of in the arches, I've scraped the underside on harsh speed bumps once or twice tho when I've got passengers in the back.

    I see, it might be worth getting the arches rolled?

    Arches are huge, don't need rolling

    I would just whack your setup on, play with the height, look and admire your work!

    Correct no need to roll the arches, if you were going 9.5"- 10" rims with a fall out decking then maybe.
