    Hi all I've sold my 18" s line wheels so I'm gonna buy some 19s next week does the tyre size need to be 215/35/19 if I'm gonna lower it on springs bare in mind it's a s line a3, or can I have 235/35/19? I'm hoping it's gonna look lower on 19s with a decent set of springs ? What's the lowest springs to get to have a noticeable look on a s line? So I need spacers ? Cheers all

    Width and offset of the 19s? You might be able to get away with 225 or 235 tyres

    I'd go for the eibach 40/50mm springs

    With eibach springs with 19" wheels will the car look actually lowered being an s line model? What would be the correct offset for 19"? The wheels will prob be 225/35/19

    Im looking to put 19's on my s line. I have no idea where to start yet. I didn't really want to lower it, does anybody know if not lowering it will look stupid?

    I didn't go with 19" in the end bought another set of 18" as I'm planning in getting some coil overs as it will go lower on 18s than 19s

    Lower you go on 18"s the less ground clearance you will have.
