    Amigos,
    I am planning to do a wheel upgrade on my S3 to a set of 19x8", does anybody know the proper offset so it doesn't hit the brake calipers?, specially the front ones.

    These are the wheels I have in mind:
    ( they are the snetterton model from TSW) will post the link as soon as I have 2 posts...
    :hubbahubba:

    I believe this model comes in 20, 32 and 45mm, is 45 the right one?

    Thanks in advance,
    Jesser.

    Lol you will have no chance hitting brake calipers with 19s!

    the offset for 19s is et42-55

    I have et50 for my 19" BBS's and lowered 40 odd mm
