    Hi Guys,

    Ive got an a3 s-line which is lowered on H&R 50mm springs but im looking to find out if ill have any issues running 19" S5 replica alloys. The 19's are 8.5 wide with an offset of 45. Also will i need spacers, as ive already got 10mm's on the front and 12mm's on the back with standard rs6 alloys.

    thanks
    Kenny

    you won't need spacers, tho i'm not sure if you'll get rubbing issues with 8.5J. you'll probably have to run stretched tyres. i'm sure N8 will be along soon to help

    you just need to buy the wheels and sell the spacer to me mate :p got any pics as looking forward to see how they look with spacers and lowered.

    A quick calculation on 1010tires.com the wheels will go out by 13mm so think you will be at the limit on front,but someone can prove me wrong ?as I am no expert
