    Hi,

    Recently changed my summer wheels and tyres from the OE 225/40 18 92Y's on an ET54 7.5 inch rim, to 225/35 19 88Y's on an ET48 8.5 inch rim.

    Would i encounter problems ( rubbing on either suspension or arches ) if i changed the tyres to 235/35/19's on my new rims ( standard S3 suspension ), as i would like to get a bit nearer to the OE load rating ?

    Thanks

    You want 215 or 225s, and they are HRE/VMR reps.
