    Snowed in today so on the search for some new wheels. I havent got much knowlage about wheels size and whats best without scrapping etc. My car has been lowerred on Eibach sportline 50mm springs.

    Currently i have 18" RS6 wheels and do scrape a bit with a full car but could be because of the offset and tyre width of 225's

    Could i go up to 19" with reducing the tyre width? Whats the best offset and tyre width without any problems?

    Thanks in advance
