    I have spotted a set of 8.5 x 19" fronts and 9.5x19" rears ET35.................what tyre sizes would best suit these

    When I got my wheels (8.5j ET48) the tyres it came with were 255/35/19 and was scraping on the inside wheel arch at the fronts (can't comment on the rear as I already had 15mm spacers fitted). Had to fit 10mm spacers temporarily until I got my new tyres (235/35/19) which fit fine although get some scrape on full lock so had to fit 5mm spacers to overcome this.

    This is all on standard S-Line suspension. Thinking of lowering slightly soon and have got some B5 cups to fit too. Hopefully won't be too much of an issue.

    with the 8.5's at the front and 9.5's at the rear it will give it a better look....Also not a quattro

    I run 235/35/19's with no issues at all. Although I have run 255 in the past and they did catch the rear arch

    my avant is lowered on ebach 50/40

    my fronts are 8.5j with 235/35/19
    my rears are 9.5j with 255/30/19

    got no issues at all with rubbing
    although did try putting 18 boxes of large tiles for the bathroom in the back
    only got round the corner before i smelt rubber burning so had to reload half of them onto the front and back seats
    no rubbing after that hope this helps :ermm:
