    Hi all

    Will a set of 19" rotars 9.0Jx19H ET33 fit my audi a3?

    I know 225/35/19 tyres are needed but i wanted to know if the wheels will fit.

    Thanks

    I'm going to say no.
    I run 19x8.5 et45 and have to run 215/35/19 and extra camber to avoid rubbing.

    Unfortunately not.... Try and get them from an A4 if your going for 19" rotors...

    The Rotors on the A4 are ET43 8.5"... If you run a 225/35 on them with a slight tyre stretch.. Remove a cpl of the rear wheel arch screws your car should be fine as long as its not mega low...

    yeah mate, that setup is pretty much want you want for the a3 looks wise... You'll gain about 15mm in wheel poke which is ideal considering a lot of guys use spacers to achieve that look

    Just had a question on these wheel sizes.
    18" 7.5j et54. Do these have the right amount of poke on them or would i need to run spacers on my sportback?
