Are 9x19 et 35 an absolute no no on a sportback? Can anything be done to make these work ?
clearance fixed using 5mm spacer, I think 4mm should be enough. I hope it woudn't be rub. It looks very similar to my BBS CH 18"x8 ET50 + 13mm spacer at front. No rubbing issue as well.
Hi guys, been offered a mint set of rota grids that are only 10 days old!
Downside is they came off a mk4 golf and he says they are 5x100 but my a3 is 5x112 I believe!
Are pcd adapters a good idea or shall I leave!
They are 9.5J so would they be too wide too?
It depends of the rim offset size mate! I think 9,5inch would be too wide even if they are up to ET50.
Yea I think it would be too much, shame as they are lush wheels and new with new tyres! í ½í¸©
anyone no if 8.5x19 et35 be ok? want to run with 225/35's but think I may need 215/35's?
I had et35 19x8.5 with 225 tyres on and it rubbed like hell like this
So I sold them and now I have 19x8.5 et45 with 215/35/19 and doesn't rub a bit
Out of the two, which one would be more concave? 19x8.5 et45 or 19x8.5 et45
They're both the same lol. If u mean 35 they will be the same as they are same width
That's the concave I've got on 19x8.5 et35
Love those wheels Gavlar.. Rotiforms?
Anybody got pics of an a3 8p with 18" porsche twists? Found a set I fancy!
Let me google that for you
Yes mate there is a pic further in the thread somewhere
Don't you worry, I did check for more
Yeah I meant 35. Confused, How can they be the same? The offsets are different
8.5 j/ ET 35/ 19 VS 9.0/ ET 40/ 19. Which on would be more concave?
9 as it's a wider wheel. Be hard to fit tho
Here's mine on 19x8.5 et45 with 215/35 tyres
I like what you did there! Lol
But I did try that with no luck on 8p only 8l
Not to worry as found a set of cayenne turbo's I fancy! Lol
Good huh? The second picture under images of the silver 8P sportback looks pretty cool! Please don't tell me it's the hideous gloss black and silver cut wheels they do?
9j et52 from a mk2 TT should clear the suspension legs on an s3 surely?
Nope went and collected them yesterday! Not seen any like these so had to get them! Lol
What do people think?
Mindak, Love them!
Really excited to see a few pictures of these on the car Mindak. They are stunning!
My s3 8p
Cheers mate, me too just need to source the correct adaptors! Lol
Anybody know what thickness adaptors I'd need if my new wheels are et57?
Think the guy said his mate ran them with 25mm"s that work out well?
What are these called? Audi a5?
Lamborghini rep wheels I think. No idea which but they are 19's
The style is called 'Callisto', and yeah those are almost definitely reps.
What width are the wheels? You want around ET45 on a 8.5J rim, and use this comparison site to get the right offset for the width you're using - 1010TIRES.COM - Wheel Offset Calculator
Maybe. 9" is really wide on an 8P A/S3, though that gives you just about the best outward fitment so if it doesn't fit at ET52 it's probably not going to fit.
Found a set but they are in county armagh
19" BLACK LAMBO STYLE VW AUDI SEAT MERC LAMBORGINI ALLOYS 5 X 112 | County Armagh | Gumtree
Not many about
So thinking of switching my new s3 8v rims to VMR.
Do you have any issues with them? Shaking? Unbalanced? Pulling steering wheel?
how bout these avant garde 590 wheels on our boy Jason's car
I have 19x8.5 VMR 701s like Rick20VT. No troubles at all.
Amerikok, tnx for the reply!
Will et45 and 8.5" will be ok on 18"?
Maybe you can share photo of your car with the rims?
Ispiri ISR1 19"x8.5" et45. These are for sale in the classified section
You won't have any troubles with that size unless you start running massive spacers and stuff like that.
I was waiting to put a pic up when I got one of it cleaned and new spacers on it but here it is
