    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.
