    2004 Audi A4 Avant SLine


    Getting some 19s for my A4...

    ET35 or ET45 available.

    I know they both fit, but what will look best? I dont want the wheel sticking out further than arch etc...??

    Hugely depends on what width really, I have 19x8.5J ET32 all round and a 10mm spacer on the back so virtual ET22 there and no rubbing issues

    Mines lowered on Eibach Pro springs and B5 perches up front

    Also depends on what tyres you want, I run a bit of stretch with 215/35's all round too

    Try this: www.willtheyfit.com, you can put your current set up and proposed set up in and it'll give you the differences, then just measure up on the car to see where the wheels and tyres will come to

    forgive my lack of technical knowledge lol....
    why 35 front / 45 rear?

    is that so they sit better in the arch?

    35 is a smaller width than 45 which gives a much better stance and will probably prevent the want for spacers later on as it just looks perfect, then go 235/35/19 for front tyres and 245/35/19 for rear. If your more concerned about aesthetics go for 225/35/19 front and 235/35/19 rear.

    I don't understand the use of the word 'width' in relation to offsets, the ET figure is not a width

    If anything you'd want an ET35 on the back to be closer to the arch for 'stance' and an ET45 on the front because the wheels need clearance to turn, but on an 8.0J or 8.5J width wheel I'd say anything up to ET32 all around would be fine with no rubbing issues unless you're running super low

    Ok it's not the width but it's how close the hub mounting is to the wheel which is similar, all I remember is 35 and 45 looked good on mine but maybe I got it the wrong way around.

    I'd say go 35 all round again but try get 9.5 rear and 8.5 front if you can.
