    I'm looking at a set of RS4 reps, B7 style. 335/35/19

    Anyone have wheels this size, any issues? Looks like 19's on Phantom A4's gallary photo's

    I have 19's with 235/35 19's on and don't have any real probs although my cars non-quattro. The fronts catch the inner arch liners slightly if you hit a bump or a speed ramp too quick and the rears tyres kiss the spring cups on big bumps but other than that they are fine.

    I think i'm going for those new RS4 wheels! 18's look stunted and i always thought 18's were still too small on B5's

    I had 19s but sold them as the tires are pretty expensive and I felt they were too big for my car.

    I would just get a decent set of 18s if I was to do it all again.

    i don't think 19"s are worth the hassle, increased weight, tyres are more expensive and the ride comfort deteriorates, 18"s are plenty big enough to get bigger brakes under.

    it would cost me £400 quid to trade the 17's in. I'm thinking stick with the black Rs4's i currently have and go for the instrument dash replacement. Although it would be a sweeter deal if they can fit a facelift in it's place with digital clock etc..

    i have 235/35/19's on with 8.5*19's not low at moment so no issues, 'marmite' on here may be able to help with tyres, i think he can occaissionally get hold of part worn pirelli p-zero rosso's, i managed to get a set off him which i'm well happy with.
