    I have 8.5" x 18 ET32 all round and the front pokes out a couple of mm but rear is perfect.

    9" is possible but think the extra 1/2" or 13mm will be too much unless the car is lowered and the arches sorted to pull it off........i am sure I will be corrected :)

    Yes they'll fit, 235/35/19 tyres would be fine too. You won't need arch work as mentioned above, mine are 19"x9.5" ET38 all round and it's pretty slammed, no arch work at all, and no rubbing.

    cheers, I'm guessing the 255 tyres that come on the rims could cause an issue?

    Yep I'd say so mate, the 235's would give a very slight stretch to the tyre which will help (depending on which brand tyre you go for as some have rounder side walls than others), but 255's would create a very square side wall which on a 9" rim with an ET35 would be pushing it I reckon.

    It ain't going to be cheap lol. These cars look so much better on 19's, only other option is BBS CH's or speedlines. But I like the factory look of the RS6's on my s line.

    It's hard to spend £1k on wheels when it's 20% of the value of the car......

    Are they for sale lol. I'm now leaning towards some speedlines, just need to find some in the right size, in the right condition, with the right rubber :tumble:

    More than likely yeah, think I'm gonna order new ones next week, just get the bank holiday out of the way first. If I get new wheels ordered then they will definitely go up for sale. I was thinking of putting up a gauging interest for sale thread this weekend.

    They won't hang around I'm sure. I want to try and get OEM audi wheels really.

    Cheers
