    Hi fellow members i am currently running 235/35/19 all round on me a3 i was considering going 235/35/19 rears and 225/35/19 fronts would there be any issues in doing so and also is there problems using runflat tyres or is it just they are a tougher sidewall as some tyremen keep telling me.

    All help much appreciated

    I take it your car isn't quattro?

    i take it your car is lowered too?
    i am running 235/35/19's and on the back it used to "rub" a little.
    thanks to some advice from rabbit222 it doesnt anymore.
    all i had to do was remove 1 screw on each side under the wheel arch/inner fender if that makes sense.
    i removed the screw where the bumper meets the fender and all was sorted.
    other that that i doubt you will have issues with run flats.
    to eliminate the "rubbing" problem, 225/35/19 would be ideal!
