    Hi guys,

    Been reading alot but haven't been able to find the answer.

    Currently running 19x8.5 ET45 VMR V709's. Thinking about selling and getting some 19x8 ET45 RS4 or TT-RS reps.

    I know with the current wheel I need to run 225/215s to avoid rubbing but with the 19x8 can I get away with 235 or do I still need to run 225s?

    I have an S3 8P lowered on KW coils.

    On another note, what do you think of these rims? - AU510 OEM Replica TT RS Style Audi VW 19 inch

    Very nice wheels, those. I think you'll still need to run 225's on them though Buddy, considering the offset is ET45 and you're lowered. I imagine it'd scrub on 235's TBH.

    225s or 215s, hardly any stretch on a 215 on an 8J as there is.

    Thanks N8.

    I was considering the 235s for drivability. I have been running 215s for a while and I want get a bit of comfort back into the drive.

    Is it going to make a big difference?

    I said it too, but I guess he didn't see my post, Fran, lol. Maybe I activated the special 'post cloaking device' feature on my User CP without realising. :laugh:

    Don't worry Paula, people message me and say "N8, your the wheel man, N8 I need your help" etc, I advise them, then they go away do something else then come back and say "you were right mate" etc its like FFS, do you think I say these things for fun :laugh:

    Aww, I was just kidding Sweetie :wub: What N8 doesn't know about rims, offsets, sizes, STTTRETCHHH etc isn't even worth knowing, ..and let's face it, I only know what I know - not that much TBH lol - from studying so many of N8's posts on the subject of rims and tyres. If I was the OP, I'd only trust something 'our man' has to say on the subject of wheels too! :icon_thumright:

    :laugh: I don't actually think I know that much. Its all from experience really, I know what works/what doesn't/what will fit/what will rub/what you need to clear etc etc
