    19" wouldn't cause rubbing issues, the main thing you would want to consider is width and offset (ET). If you don't want issues you should be looking around for 7.5J to 8J and about ET45+. (although i have tried 8J ET40 myself with no issues).

    In terms of brands, I personally like OEM's as not all wheels go with the A3. With 1k you could possibly get rotor alloys (OEM) or S3/s-line's for cheaper prices. Go for some OEM's or BBS CH (I would prefer 18").

    Alternatively Team Dynamics Pro Race are nice wheels, good quality and light/strong.

    18" is prefered as any bigger and you wreck ride quality.

    I've got a set of Inovit 18" wheels on my other motor. They look okay and quality isn't too bad , but they are quite heavy and balance isn't perfect needing more weights than you'd expect.

    Really personal preference, I don't like too much of a big wheel on a car (talking from past experience) makes it look weird and of course you can get a away with 18's not lowered but if you go for 19's then lowering is a MUST as your ride would be too high.
