    My mate bought a set of 19" stock S5 wheels without considering they might not fit his A4 B7.
    The wheels are fitted with 255/35-19 tires and are supposedly 19x8.5 ET32.

    Do you reckon it might work if he changes the tires to, say, 235/35-19?

    If they are S5 wheels, does that mean they are from a B8 platform car?

    If so, then I think they will have a different hub diameter, which would require some form of adapter ring.

    Could be wrong, though.

    They are from the B8 platform yeah, so I will need to get an adapter ring for them.

    I am mostly concerned with the width. It would be quite terrible to buy new tires only to find out that they still do not fit :)

    i've got some a5 17"s on my a6 and the offset brings them right out even with 225's, its gonna be even tighter with 19"+a4+235s

    have you tried a wheel on the car to see how much they stick out?

    and yes you will need spigot rings

    They should be o.k

    Being a S5 the ofsett sounds right - 255 on a A4 might rub if lowered. 235/35/19 will work on a ET32

    I have fitted 19's (ET48 8.5j) from A6 Le Mans Edition to my B7. The original tyre sizes were 255/35/19 which had rubbing on the front so needed 10mm spacers (already had 15mm spacers on the rear so can't comment there) till I got new tyres. New tyres are 235/35/19 fronts cleared without spacers then but scraped on full lock. Fitted 5mm spacers and no problems now.

    Current setup:

    Front - 235/35/19 8.5j ET43
    Rear - 235/35/19 8.5j ET33

    HTH, Az.

    Thanks for your replies so far.
    I think I'll see if we can try the wheels on the car during easter time.
