    i picked up a set of BBS CKs in 19 while my RS6s get a refurb, would have preferred a darker colour like gun metal

    Looks awesome, how are these 19" comfort wise, noisy? I can't decide which to choose,18"or 19" for my sportback, but a bit concerned about the noise withe a 30 or 35 profile when choosing the 19"

    I've been running 19s for nearly 2 years now, comfort is fine as long as you stay away from potholes. The noise really depends on the tyres you pick. I have 35 profile tyres which is what's recommended with 19s, 30 is too low.

    Thx, I thought that lower profile would give more noise, assuming you're driving on "the same tire". What tires are you using?

    I have been running 225/35/19 avon ZZ3 which are fine for me. The newer ZZ5 is meant to be less noisy so I might try them out next time I change over tyres

    I was just wondering if someone would able to help me with some advise on fitting a set of alloys. I have a 2004 audi a3 2.0 fsi and have purchased a set of 19" alloys with 235/35/19 tyres. i have tried to fit them but they all seem to rub really badly. I assume i will need to space them off but i don't know what size they would need to be. Any advise would be greatly appreciated.

    I think you will need about 8-10mm spacers + 225 or 215 tyres would also help

    Yes they will fit no problem

    The alloys you have linked are 9.5J ET 45, too wide imo. Front might poke, 215 tyres are a must, here is what 9.5J ET 40 looks like. 35mm springs might not be low enough, try 50mm they sit much better

    Anybody on here had R36 wheels on a3? im thinking of getting 18's but think 19's would look better but wanted to ask if the ride comfortability is good, Ive got 16's at the moment and the ride is smooth and soft. Ofcourse wont get this with 19's but just wanted to get and understanding how rough it can be?

    Cheers Jay

    Hey guys wondering if some1 can help, just bought a set of 18" RS6 alloys, what I need to know is what size spacers would I need to get the flush look? I know I will require the longer bolts because of spacers also want to get it lowered so that the arches sit just about the tyres without rubbing, what mm lowering springs would I need, have been looking at Eibach Pro kit. Advice would be much appreciated, cheers J

    *** Pic Request ***

    Has anyone got pics of 18" RS4 reps vs 19" RS4 reps please on a sportback? Gone through 20 pages without joy!

    Would I get a better ride with 18s or is it negligible? Thankyou in advance
