    I'd be careful of putting BBS LM reps on in winter, i had BBS LMs on before the X5 alloys and the polished lips dont like cold weather, or road salt!!!!! even if you coat them with wax i think you'll have spiders appearing in the lacque before the winters out....

    Some good info on here guys. I bought some rotiform reps 19" 8.5 et35. I'm hoping to run with the standard sport height but won't be putting them on the car until April time.

    i cant decide if that looks to high or is about right to keep a "standard" look!

    Silly question, but has it actually raised the car 2" or is it the same hight somehow as it would be on stock 17s (sport sus)?!

    The bigger the Alloy the smaller the tyre profile, so where as a 17" alloy uses a 235/45 tyre you'll find most 19" alloys use a 225/235 35 profile so the rolling radius I.E tyre diameter stays somewhere the same, as an example my 19" alloys are fitted with 235/35 and the total tyre and alloy diameter is only 12mm bigger than a standard 17" with a 235/45 tyre!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Yes i spend to much time fitting alloys and tyres to my car and working out offsets,

    I have a set of 19" LM Reps but really can't bring myself to put them on a car with standard (sport) suspension especially with the amount of Reverse rake the A4 seems to have as standard. Just ordered some B5 perches for the front as a stop gap before investing in coils.

    I've seen a few sports and they all sit slightly different. I guess this could be affected by age, mileage, tyres etc... anyhow. Here is mine.
