    hi all
    thinking of buying some alloys and tyres,but i,m concerned that i might get some rubbing issues
    i have a avant lowered on eibach 50/40 springs

    wheels i am considering are

    Two fronts:19"x 8.5 with 235/35/19 AutoGrip tyres et 38
    Two backs:19"x 9.5 with 255/30/19 Nankang tyres et40

    anybody else running these sizes on a avant? or know if they will give me problems

    I'd hope that those sizes will be ok..... cos if that doesnt work for you then i'm screwed haha!

    I'm going with an 8.5F ET32 and a 9.5R ET35 which will be a bit 'pokier' than your set up, and mine will be going on coilovers and as low as possible haha!

    I'm still undecided on what tyre widths / profiles to go with, got a few different options there. I'll most likely be going with something like a nankang as well by the way - as far as 'budget' tyres go, you could do a lot worse. And its not exactly a car I go tearing down B-Roads in so i'm happy enough to make that compromise :)
