    Not sure about the suspension, but wheels are 235/35/19's ET35. It's Warren_S3 (moderator)'s old 8P2.

    Don't think an 8P would have the clearance for that concaved a wheel.

    That's a shame :-(

    I think I read that they are an et35 with a 4 inch dish. But they are all bespoke made to order, so maybe do able ? £4k is a lot for wheels though

    Looks like that B5 is running 20"s, so ET35 is a no-no. If you could get the right ET and width (though unlikely with that design, unless you're happy to lose the concave) then it might be possible. I think going for a 19" version will be better unless you're on air and can get the exact right fitment.
    I'm sure N8 will be able to advise on fitting 20"s to an 8P... he's dabbled in the area :beerchug:.

    Question for those who may help as i dont see these wheels fitting (when trialled)

    19x9 - BBS Super RS - ET42. As i run DaveB's 996TT BBK up front i have to leave 4-5mm Spacers on for the wheel to clear the calipers unfortunately. Even without them they would sit on the KW coilovers.

    Assuming i need an ET44 or 45 or maybe 19x8? Currents are 19x8 ET44 BBS CK running the 4mm spacer as well to clear brakes - Guards are pulled about 6-7mm out already.

    Hi there ...
    i think that Porsche 996 wheels would look very good on the 8p I be been through some of the pages here and could not find any pics, would anyone have some ? They are pricey but surely would look the part on my car 😜.
    apologies if there is some pics on this thread ... If some let me know on what page plz ..

    You'll need to be more specific; what style of 996 wheel? There are definitely some 8Ps with Porsche wheels in amongst these pages.

    Has anyone got any pictures of an a3 runing a 225 40 19 rather than the usual 35 profile.

    Im sick ofd the terrible ride withthe state of the roads round here and thinking of going up a size with the profile from a 225/35/19 to a 225/40/19, Ive also considered a 235 40 19 but feel this may be a bit too much lol

    im running a 19" et42 8" wide wheel no running issues so far with the bolt removed

    i run 35 and the ride quality is fine, i wouldn't size up to 40 as the amount of rubbing would increase significantly
