    looks like the Germans know one or two things more than us Brits aboiut lowering.
    i have these rims with an offset of ET35 & 8.5 stretch on 18 inch.
    im not sure if it will rub with 225 40 tyres if i fit eibach sportsline springs.
    one mine says sell it, but theother mind says keep them.
    the rims are ABT manufactured by OZ Racing.
    Plus they are ultra light. lighter than most OEM 16 & 17 inch rims.

    With 225's you might just get away with it.

    I put a 5mm spacer on an 8.5J ET50 rim (Tyre; 235/35/19's) and it rubbed even without an arch liner screw in. Don't know if you can use that to calculate it back, but always assume that whilst it may not rub without weight in the back, once you have some luggage or passengers it rubs and makes your car sound like a chickenshed!

    On my previous car,which was A3 2.0TDI Q 2005 i had 235/35/19's all arround
    on 8.J ET35 rims! I was lowered on H&R Sport CupKit and had very minimal rubbing at front
    when on bumpy roads! I was loving that setup!
