    Alloys again...

    I'm thinking about getting nice 19"s for my A4.
    I have a choice of 8,5", 9", 9.5" and ET 69 or 57 or 44.
    So I assume that the best choice will be ET44 but should I go all round 9"?
    Maybe someone has any pics with similar 19x9 with ET44 or close?
    I don't want to use any spacers really because I had bad experience with them but on the other side
    ET 44 might be to far inside and look rubbish.

    Are you not able to get ET35 or thereabouts?
    with a 19x9 wheel, you'd have near perfect stance!

    I'm running ET35 front & ET25 rear Touareg wheels (9x19" all round):



    You can get spacers made up in whatever width you want, or buy off-the-shelf ones so that's worth bearing in mind.

    They look like the Dectane/Sonar LED ones with the stock covers fitted.

    Thanks Ultra, To be honest I thought they would be more out than that but at this picture you're on the ground so camber is higher as well?
    Thing is that I want to enjoy quattro in corners and don't want to stretch the tire or have stupid camber.
    Simply want a nice set of 19's with no issues. Any idea what size tire I could get without stretch on 9"?
    I will think about spacers if I don't like it without. I will not be going very low either but still will be on coileys.
    D2NY G are you running spacers on yours? I would be happy with the rear like that.



    And I am very tempted by these:

    ultramodz - what setup did you run here?
    This is perfect stance for me.

    Erm, those were 8.5x19 front, 9.5x19 rear ET43 all round (I think), and I was on coilovers there at 24" from the ground to the top of the wheel arch.

    I spaced the front out 15mm at a later date but not in that pic

    Did you have any issues with 9.5 rear? Any rubbing? Do you remember what tire did you have?
    I love Artec alloys but not sure if they look good on a silver car.

    No probs at the back - you can dial in a bit of negative camber to be on the safe side. I was running 235/35/19 tyres on the back & 225/35/19 on the front.

    I also had a set of LM reps which were ET38 9.5x19 at the back - that needed the camber tweaking as the rear frame isn't actually even from side to side.
