    The Eternal wheel debate - please help

    i have not decided on style yet, but i plan to get some new alloys for my b7 avant s line

    currently i am running 8 x 19 RS6 reps

    size wise i would like to go to 9 x 19
    firstly is this possible ??
    if so what size offset would i need ?
    if not i know i would be ok with 8.5 x 19 but again what offset would i require
    i am having trouble tracking down suitable wheels at 8.5 x 19 also
    i am a fan of oem look, so nothing garish.
    my old wheels will be up for sale soon if anyone wants them, but they need a refurb as the missus has mullered them.

    with kerbing in my mind, what is the best tyre for alloy protection ??

    thanks

    Drop into Tyreweb at Ashford Orbital Park and speak to Damo, tell him I recommended you. He is an expert in all things wheel related.

    Call first to make sure he isn't on a day off. 01233 500444.
    Or just call him for advice.

    Yes 9" J's will fit but try to get an offset of 40 - 50ET then if you need to poke out more you can get spacers, Wheel Offset Calculator

    Doug, I spoke to Damo yesterday and he is expecting your call. He is a really nice guy, and does a good deal on tyres too.
    I get mine done there, even though I am in Birmingham !

    If all your looking for is to fill the arches, then spacers will do the job, then you don't need to swap wheels.

    9j with ET50 wont cause you any problems. 9j with ET40 will be fine on the rear but not sure about the fronts?

    I'm running 9x19 ET 60 all round with PCD adapters bringing them down to ET35 front, ET25 rear on 215/35/19s.

    Which wheels are you looking at? I'm guessing Bentley wheels as you've said 9x19? If so they are ET41 and will fit fine, though if you like the wheels flush, use some spacers.

    In terms of tyres, for wheel protection go for 235/35/19.

    Here's a pic of mine for reference:

    Bentley wheels fit no probs but if the wife has mullerd your 8J's then they won't stand a chance. I liked the look of he B's but for everyday use there not for me. Sold mine on and back to my RS4 reps. Here is what 215's on a 9" rim look like.

    the tyres are nearing the end of their life, the alloys are kerbed, so i thought it was time for a swap.
    i really like the bently ones
    also really like the RS6, but cant get them in a 9 x 19 with the correct offset ??
    i do not want them to stick out past the arches to much.
    her is my current ones:

    Yeah, it's on air & they're Touareg wheels on staggered adapters, not Bentleys

    I'm sure the OEM RS4 wheels are 9J ET29 which is way to wide for standard arches. As for not finding Bentley wheels, I just sold some 19" 9 Spoke which are rare but plenty of 5 spke available. I know of two other sets for sale. Priced around £900 to £1000 with tyres fitted.
