    prob go 40mm without an issue but of course it all depends on tyre size etc... but your best bet is to p.m n8 he is the audi-sport wheel man he knows alot about wheel sizes/tyres etc.... speak to him for a defo answer

    My old set up, lowered on KW V2s -65mm on Phaeton Helios which were 19 x 8.5 ET45 wearing 215/35/19s, you won't get any rubbing. Well I didn't anyway :wub:
