    I want to lower my s3 but im concerned about the rear wheels touching the arches with 19 inch rims. I had a 2t sportback which had the eibach springs in and wen lowered the wheels would touch the arches with 19 inch rims. Thats y i am 2 minded of doing so. Does anyone know of any such inccident and can help me solve the problem?
    2ndly would u guys reccomend me lowering my car ?

    getting the right offset will stop rubbing issues minimum of 45 offset

    just had the same trouble myself had to get a new set of rims cos the previous owner put 35 et wheels on and it rubbed with standard suspension .

    if you get 225 or even 215/35/19 tires you should be fine , it makes the tire wall slope back and shouldnt have issue's...

    ive got mine lowered on h&r springs 35mm my wheels are 45 offset ,wheels 19 inch, my tires are 225/35/19 dosent rub at all and the ride is nice hope this helps ...
