    Hi,

    There I am interested in some 19" BBS LM Reps for my B7 S4.

    Couple of questions if anyone can help?

    What size tyre will I need? and off set?

    Does anyone know any good places to get BBS LM replicas?

    Cheers

    I've been running LM reps for the past year or so:

    They are 8.5x19 running 225/35/19 all round. The offset they come in is ET45 and for the fronts to clear the brake caliper you need a set of 17.5mm spacers. This is the minimum width spacer you can use as the calipers are huge.

    I went for 17.5mm spacers all round to even it out, though as I've got it dropped low on coilovers, I've actually got some 15mm spacers for the rear ready to go on. This should give it a few extra mm clearance as it rubs when I have four people in the car at the back.

    I got the spacers imported from the US from ECS Tuning (http://www.ecstuning.com/Audi-B7_A4-Quattro-2.0T/Wheels/Spacers/ES119/) You will also need longer wheel bolts which ECS sell - if you look through their site, you'll find them. You'll want conical bolts to fit the LM reps. Drop them an email before you order & they'll help you out with the right length, or search online for the OEM length & add 17.5mm.

    I suggest you lower your car as well as 19s look a bit silly even on the S-Line/S4 suspension. I got my coilovers fitted first and they're FK Konigsports.

    I got the wheels via eBay, fitted with tyres & balanced ready to go. Most of them are listed with 235/35/19 tyres but for clearance, especially if you are planning to lower the car, I'd reccomend going for 225s. If you drop the seller a message, they should do the package for the same price - in fact, 225/35/19 are a bit cheaper generally.

    Here are a few sellers I've found for you... with a few different colour options too:

    Hope this helps!

    Cheers,
    Matt.

    Lovin your car Matt. LM reps would have been my route to evil too but thought I'd keep it a little different to ensure individuality.

    Cheers guys [:)]

    Yeah still pretty good, though you do notice how poor the roads are. People have said how comfortable the ride is but at the same time, you can throw it into a corner and it sticks!

    It's quite funny how annoyed people get when I slow right down for speed bumps though - once, a couple of guys in an old MR2 were right up behind me through this 20mph village zone where they have loads of speed bumps & when the road opened out, they put their foot down, swung out around me & shot off down the road only to lose control and smash the car into a lamp post, wedged against a wall! They then got out & started arguing with each other lol

    Would 15 MM Spacers be ok???? Not sure if I fancy importing them and AMD do some 15MM spacers.

    Not on the front, as I said, though you can run 15mm on the back.

    Sorry I can't remember - they were as close to OEM + 17.5mm as I could get... I think the OEM length is 28mm, but to be sure, go and undo one bolt & measure it. :)
