    19" Rims on a 1.8 TFSI?

    Hi guys do you think 19" rims on a 1.8TFSI would be ok? I mean in terms of it fitting properly and not scraping anywhere.

    Depends on the tyres you fit. A 35 profile would be only a couple of mm bigger than the 40 profile on 18" rims.

    Hi Bjorn

    Does 8J also apply if fitting 19's to the new S3 Sportback? ET? 225's?

    regards
