    255/35/19 Tyres On A4 B7???

    anyone know if theres rubbing problems with a 255/35/19??

    the wheels are 19" genuine rs4's and im planning on putting them on a 06 A4 2.0T FSI Q Sline Special Edition!! thats a mouthful lol

    just wondering if the arches on the A4 B7's were the same width as the rs4 B7 arches???

    No, RS4's have wider arches, genuine RS4 wheels will stick out too far and they'll rub especially on the front. Forget it and get some replicas which will fit OK.

    Definitely, have you not seen an RS4? The arches are huge compared to a standard A4.

    just had a look at a few rs4's from the back compared to the standard b7 and yes they are huge!

    the b7 arches must be wider than the b6 so wonder wud i get away with the 235's, works fine at the min on the b6, its a sport and is lowered 20mm, ano the sline's are lowered more! think 30mm not sure tho
