    I've done it!

    and mate it's not worth it in my opinion. The rears don't fit, I've had the wheels milled down and the adapters milled down and they far too wide with a too high offset. If they would fit with adapters would be better.
    Adapter are about 250-300 quid, but I've had trouble with mine getting them off for winter :(


    i ran 225/35 19s on the 10j rears and they didn't last 6month due to scrapping and rubbing. My car even isn't that low aswell.
    i spent well over a 1500 quid getting wheels tyres adapters and arch rolling.

    An and heads up the wheels don fit int the wheel well Iif you have a spare tiger claw lol.

    Hi I'm after some new wheels but not sure what size to go for i was looking at getting some 19" with a offset of et 35 and 8 j and for the rears et 38 9j for the back was thinking rotiforms or 3sdm do you think this could work I've got a set of 18" rs4

    rotiforms look nice, the ones with loads of crossed spokes
    3sdm o.01s (my next choice)
    8/9j will generally fit no real issues with offset providing they not daft.
    19s fill the arch the best, but you will suffer higher tyre costs, 18s more practical still look good.

    Rs6s with some spacers on the rear will sit flush, one of my favourites. Another forum member will let you know about what spacer will be needed. I'm sure it's either 15mm/20mm.

    Any wheel will fit aslong as it's 5x112 stud pettern mate.
    the reason I said 0.01 was personal choice but 0.08 will fit

    all you need is 5x112 fitment really

    I'm absolutely in love with the 3SDM 0.05's. Bank balance permitting they're what I hope to be rolling around on come Spring time.
