    Hi.
    I've just had my 2008 A3 lowered with Eibach Sportlines and I'm thinking of fitting some 19" wheels.
    Which offset wheels and tyres should I go for to prevent rubbing?

    Thanks
    Chris

    i was asking simular questions previously, i have a 08 plate s-line and really want the same springs as you, but im looking for 19's too. what MM have u gone down? depending on how low youve gone will depend on the offsets and so on.

    but i was adviced by N8 whos wikid, said if u want 19's go for obviously 5x112 and ET45. or if u want 18's youl get away with ET35

    although this advice is vaige i thought it might help.

    with the 18's youl need something along the lines of 215/40/18 (not to wide) and 19's something like 225/35/19

    Depends a lot on the wheel width as well. 19x8.5 ET45 with a 225/35 or 215/35 is the preferred set up

    Post up what wheels you are considering and we can tell you if they'll work or not

    Thinking of going for these wheels but in 19" form - they're not in stock at the moment and I can't seem to find them anywhere else.
    18" Autodesign Florida Alloy Wheels

    Haven't totally made my mind up yet, I quite like the TTRS wheels but not a big fan of the two-tone colour.

    you will need 225 tyres on 19's otherwise it will rub

    Is it better to go for the 225 tyres rather than the 215 tyres? Obviously they'll be more grip.

    The thinner the Tyre, the more stretched it will look. Which some people like.

    I'd guess on a 8.5j a 215 would look a little stretched. I run 215 on my standard sports, and whilst not stretched, they do look skinnier.

    I'm thinking of 19s as well.
    Thing that worries me, is I get some scrubbing on 17s, 215 45 17, on eibach sportlines.

    Remind me of the bk racing, Khan craze in early 2000s.

    Not my cup of tea.

    Im after either a 5 or 6 spoke that are easy to clean front and back. I might be better off with TTRS wheels.

    Looks really nice that mate.
    Do you get any rubbing with those wheels?
    Also, where did you get your headlights from?

    Just a shame they are reps, I don't think gloss suits these wheels at all.

    Yes was hard to find the concave look as my 56plate sportback had 18s but couldn't achieve this look.
