    I've searched but wanted to double check before I go ahead!

    I'm looking at a set of alloys which are 9 x 19" with an offset of ET45 and 235/35 tyres - will they fit on my Avant S Line without any probs? It's got the standard 18" Five Arm alloys on at the moment.

    Cheers :icon_thumright:

    I've got absolutely huge 255/40/19's with an offset of 48, and there is very little rubbing, you should be OK with yours.

    Standard is 8x18 ET43 so you're adding 12mm (more or less) inside and outside. 12mm outside will be fine but I would be more worried about clearance on the inside of the arches..........

    Also a 9" rim is quite wide for a 235/35. Why not just fit the 8x19 ET 35's? They will be 8mm further out and you'll have no issues.
