    Hi all new to this site and need some help?

    i have a 2010 a3 sportback black edition in white

    I recently bought a new set of 19" bbs lm wheels with

    245/35 on the front
    255/35 on the rear

    and the width is 8.5

    the rear are rubbing on the arches when i go over large bumps and when i have 2 people in the rear they rub badly.

    will someone be able to tell be which size tyres i will be able to go with to stop the rubbing ?

    thanks

    Ryan

    225 would be ok if your not lowered but 215 would be best.

    245 and 255 no wonder they are rubbing you would be better off with 225 or 215 as said

    255?? flip me - 235 at the most! but the offset is quite low on the LM's so you would be best with a 215/225

    Also, you can remove the screw that goes into the rear bumper - if you are facing the arch, at your 2 o'clock position, there is a screw. This can be safely removed to prevent some rubbing. A lot of lowered A3's do it including my self in my coilover'd A3 TDI!
