New wheel fitment

    Hey guys,

    I'm looking into getting some new wheels for the upcoming summer and I am a complete amateur when it comes to fitment. The current wheels I have are 8.5j 19' ET45 with 235/35 tyres.

    I do want to stick to 19's but for some reason 9.5j ET35 with 225/35 has just popped into my head.

    I would like the wheels a little wider than 8.5 and with a little stretch, but I have no idea what I'm doing when it comes to this sort of thing and have no idea what the crack is with 'offset'. I have normally gone with what the chap says at southwest tyres when I have previously purchased wheels.

    Can I please have your input of what you think would be best.

    Thanks.

    I've done some research on the set up you are suggesting and they should just be OK, they will sit very flush and may require you to remove the arch liner screw on the front wheel arch and depending on how low you go you may need some arch rolling.

    My Alphards were 9.5J and ET40 on the rear. I trial fitted them on my A4 and they were pretty much flush. ET 35 will poke out 5mm more. pix for reference :

    Not had any problems with the rear the only thing i have to be careful of is speed bumps and some multi storey car park ramps

    That Yellow S4 is stunning, really want an S4 front end now....

    cheers mate appreciate it thanks. That pic was taken on standard sport / s line suspension so it's 20mm lower than se suspension. What have you got on yours?? A4's do look good on a nice set of BBS LM's

    is that S4 really running 9.5j ET35 up front?? I've read on some other forums that it wouldn't work in the front.

    do you know anyone else on here that is running this set-up? Cos I really wanna go for this cos it looks sick. :hubbahubba:
