    Has anyone ever tried to fit 19x9" 5 spoke alloys to a new model A3 with 235/35X19 tyres? Were there any problems? Please let me know asap as I am thinking about buying a new set.

    Thanks

    I'm not talking form experience here mate, but I would think that the 9" width might cause some concerns especially at the front, unless you are using coilovers to increase a bit of space in the arch.

    Can you not get the same rims with an 8 or 8.5" width?

    Richy and Trident21 should be able to help you on this, although I think they're running 19" x 8 1/2" wide rims.
