    front 8.5" et 35 rear 9.5" et 38 workable????

    Im currently looking for a set of summer wheels and keeping my rs6's for winter use with some winter tyres slung on,

    Im a fan of dished wheels and found a set I like there staggered wheels but im running them on a Quattro so I plan on running same size tyres front and rear (225/40/19) some stretch on rear and a tiny bit of stretch on front but being the same size (radius) it wont upset the Quattro.

    My question is im lowered 40mm rear 40mm + B5 perches front and I just want to be sure the wheels will run problem free, specs are:
    front-19"x 8.5" et 35
    rear-19"x 9.5 et 38

    Here's the wheels:

    NEW 19" AM TWIN SPOKE ALLOYS WITH DEEP INOX DISH AND BIG 9.5" REAR ET35/38, BM Autosport Ltd

    My understanding is the front will extend out 16mm further than my stock rs6 wheels and the rear extend 26mm further, it's the rears that are my main concern although that doesn't seem as extreme as those running X5 alloys (10" wide rear) they run 25mm extend and thats with out the adapter plates of at least 20mm so they run around 45mm extend total!!!!,

    has anyone any pics running the same or similar set up?

    or can anyone confirm they will run problem free before I take the plunge and go and pic a set up next week?

    Mine is running the same wheels as Paul but I have 9.5"x19" ET35 all round, I'm not running any spacers anywhere and they have 235/35/19 tyres all round, also lowered on coilovers, old photos now but nothing has changed.

    Cheers fellas, bean5 not got any spacers on mine, just the wheels and tyres. My RS6's are only 8" wide but with ET 30 sit flush with the arches

    Nik S3 cheers for comments mines not a Quattro so I'm not too sure how staggered wheels affect 4wd drive system, sure someone on here would be able to help you out mate

    AZ car is looking awesome mate, makes me want to put 9.5" up front as well

    Cheers mate, like I said old pics but it still looks just the same.

    I did tell you to get 9.5" all round when you were thinking of getting a set didn't I!

    2 Awesome looking motors there guys, where did you get your lm's from ?

    I have been looking at bm autosport at the 19's which seem to be et38 or et45, i have an S4 would this make any difference to the et ?

    Just researching at the moment but this is the look i will be after maybe in the summer !

    Cheers mate, I actually stumbled across the receipt for my wheels yesterday and I noticed that they are actually ET38 all round not ET35 like I said in a previous post.

    I bought mine from Autoalloys in Ireland and had them shipped over, Alloy Wheels - Alloy Wheels NI - Specialist supplier of alloy wheels and tyres - Autoalloys - Magherafelt

    If you want them for your S4 and want to run the same as me (9.5" all round) then you'll need to use some spacers on the front to clear your calipers, I'm pretty sure you just need a 5mm spacer.

    I got mine from hotline motorsports they are based in London and levelshulme Manchester, just to warn you though the first set he tried selling me weren't LM reps they were some other crappy ones that looked nothing like them and were the wrong pcd, he tried to sell me 5x114's with wobble bolts.

    Once I pointed out his mistake he got me the staggered LM's for no extra money and gave me all new chrome wheel bolts and lockers free so I was very happy. I might be selling mine soon so if you don't find any keep an eye on the classifieds

    I've got my RS6's that I use for winter and just picked up some atheos (I think that's what they are called) off a touareg, not 100% on getting rid of the LM's just thinking about it. I've not put them back on yet I'm waiting for all the salt to wash off the roads, when I do I will probably want to keep them
