    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

    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!
