    Hi guys

    Managed to get my hands on a set of Speedlines - 19"

    Thinking of buying them...

    Look like this:

    [​IMG]

    5 Wheels - 1 grey, rest are silver.

    255/40 Tyres - ET48.

    Wanted to strech some 225s over them...

    They're in mint nick...

    1) How much are they worth?

    2) Will they fit my A3?

    Cheers :D

    A client at work has a TT with them on looks lovely.

    If they are 9J which I think they are, then they will rub.

    A set just finished on ebay and sold for 800! My max bid was 600 so lost out in a big way!

    Sorry, no pics, but it sits great on my new 19s (see other thread!)

    The car is filthy, but will take some pics on Sunday. Alternatively if you're at Ultimate Dubs on Sunday the car will be there..

    Hi pete - He said they're 8.5inchs

    If you dont mind me asking - whats the width of a wheel with a 225mm tyre on it? Is that 8inches?

    Is so, with the magical information i got from you the other day, the should just about fit with streched tyres...

    i could stretch 215s over it to get this look - might do 225s to be on the safe side :D

    Lovely wheels! I swapped my 18s for 19s a while back, sourcing them from ebay. £800 with tyres is a fair price, and you can flog the tyres as they're ususally the wrong size for an A3 (mine were from an A6).

    225s are the best tyres, though there's a bit of stretch and offer bugger all rim protection (so don't park too close to the kerb!).

    Thanks for the reply mate :D I think it was your car that initially gave me the urge to get a set!

    Are yours offset 48 ?

    And do they rub at all - They look awesomee!

    Cheers

    225 tyres would usually be fitted to a 7.5J or 8J rim. They should be ok on an 8.5J with a small stretch.

    If they're 8.5J they may rub a bit still, especially if you drop on coilovers, but hopefully not toooo much!

    Mine are 8.5x19 ET48 on 225 F1s, and lowered on H&R springs. No rubbing at all, other than the OS/R a tiny bit and only with a fully loaded car. The springs work brilliantly and the handling is sublime (mine is quattro which helps).

    Thanks for that - they should be flat with the arches I think so with streched 225/35/19s, it should work!!

    Just going to wait and see for what Maars says and then Im going to barterrr :p

    Fook - over 3k on my my car in 3 months :S Best hide my bank statement lol
