    Looking at the possibility of a set of 19" Audi 20-Spoke wheels on my 2008 A3 S-Line.
    Spec as follows:

    Diameter: 19"
    Width: 9J
    PCD: 5 x 112
    ET: 41

    With 225/35/19 tyres...

    Currently running at standard s-line height but anticipating a small drop in the near future.

    Would they fit without scrubbage?

    Thanks all.

    I don't think it's safe to say they won't scrub...

    Lee_R - Thanks for the reply, but i think i agree with V6Pete.

    V6Pete - I agree, that was my concern. I'd be better placed to hold out for from 8.5 ET48's i think.

    but it looks great on at shows and should be kept that way, id never have stupidly wide or large wheels for driving not only would it be a horrible drive its a risky one and with the current state of roads theyd all be fucked in 30 miles of driving :p along with my back!

    I have driven on both 225 and 215 on a 9J rim, both drive fine. To be honest it is a bit of a stretch for a 215, thats why I changet to a 225. Loads of people fun this set up with no issues.

    As for the wheels fitting, I would go for it, however they may scrub a bit. my 9x18 et 42 does not catch, and I dont think a 9x19 et 41 would either.

    As with everything in life, there are pros and cons. 215s on a 9J are perfect if you want to slam your car, have 3 in the back and not even have to worry about rubbing, if you want to nail it round a roundabout then its a no no, handling is majorly effected. Here's a close up pic of the 215 pirellis I had on my splits:

    Some like stretch, some don't, nobody is right, nobody is wrong. 225s won't rub unless ur slammed.
