    I have an 09 tdi a3 sline and looking to put some 19" replica wheels on there and lower the suspension a little..

    Any idea what tyre size i should be looking at 225/35/19 or 235/35/19

    Also which offset is ET45 ok? Or do i need higher offset? (hard to get :( )

    Im looking to lower the car a little more but obviously dont want to wrect the ride with rubbing

    thanks for your advice

    225/35 for no rubbing issue when lowered, ET45 should be fine. N8's the man you want to talk to :)

    ET54 is usually standard, running stretch will ensure there is no rubbing, you will be chancing it with 225s.
