    Hi

    I think I have finally settled on getting a set of the continental gt alloys 5 spoke 19 x 9

    Trouble is that I can't find any ! eBay has set with no gyres for 1700 which is way to much really. Anyone know of any more for sale anywhere ?

    Also my car has just been lowered on h&r springs, with this in mind, are there any clearance issues I should think about.
    With tyre choice what is best ? I do not like stretched gyres so what size should I go for ?

    Call Damo at Tyreweb at Ashford Orbital Park , tell him I recommended you. 01233 500444.

    Seriously, I know I have posted this before but give him a call, he should be able to answer all your tyre queries.

    I know you said you dont like stretched tyres but 215/35/19 are your best bet. Try wheel whores or edition 38

    245/35s if you dont want stetch. 215/35s will stretch quite abit over 9j wheels and if you dont like strretch it will look like loads!

    You shouldnt, I think Karl is running 245/45s on his 9j rear LMs with no rubbing and he's down 50mm.

    i have 215/35s on my 8.5j and its a little stretch but for someone who doesn't like stretch and an extra .5 of an " I dont think he'll be very happy.

    Tyrestretch.com - Image Library

    Have a look at this link Doug and see what you think.

    that tyre stretch guide is perfect
    so, looking at that, i would not be happy to go lower than 235/35/19
    would i be ok with this setup front and rear with no issues - on h&r springs ???

    yeah that is smaller than audi's standard fit tyres so there will not be a problem with tyres at all, the wheels being 9" wide shouldn't cause you any trouble but if you had any issues it would be there, not with tyres.

    what offset are they? ET45?
