    Aggressive Wheel Fitment Thread

    I was advised against staggering the tyres, as it could mess with the 4x4 (Quattro)

    Aggressive Wheel Fitment Thread

    I went with 245s as my wheels are 9.0j and I did not want a stretched look. 235s on a 9.0j barely fit. And 245 gives the tyres square shoulders, which I prefer. Also means I do not lose height in the sidewall, which also happens when the tyre is stretched. Your wheel being 8.5j could take a 235...

    Absolutely. No problem with that. You could take 245s even. Wider track and wider arches to accommodate this on the Saloon. As Peter said, 20s will bolt straight on.

    Yeah, that was a weird photo. Even made the S3 look like a Mini Clubman! That said, I think ET40 is the lowest ET you’d want to run on a Sportback, otherwise you will start to poke (depending on your width of alloy of course)

    Standard wheel ETs on a S3 8V Sportback range mainly between ET45-ET52 The Saloon and the RS3 can take ETs in the low 30s because of the faired arches and the wider track. But the lower ET meant there was a risk the wheels would poke out too much... and then the 9.0j width brings it close to...

    Seems like the Tyres sit pretty much flush with the arch

    Have yet to find anyone with this set up on an S3 Sportback, stock suspension & springs: 245 / 35 / 19 - Michelin Sport 4s 19”x 9.0 ET 40 - Neuspeed RSE10 Was very worried about the widths with the ET, especially on 245s, but I can confirm it fits! No rub. Tyre wall is pretty flush with the...

    Thanks Peter, going to get the tyre shop to run 245s first, to see if there’s rub as that’s my preferred option. Any issues and 235 goes on.

    Hey Peter is that with the same set up? Ie 19s 9.0j with 40 offset? Does look tight, but there seems to be clearance ... just. Just don’t want the tyre so stretched and would like some rim protection (for when the wife drives!!)

    S3 8v - Will 19”/9.0j/ET40 fit?

    Or these: https://www.fitmentindustries.com/wheel-offset-gallery/1060548/2015-audi-s3-vossen-vfs1-eibach-lowering-springs This is almost exactly the setup I was looking at. In fact at 9.5j it’s a bit wider than the 9.0j I was looking at. Says no rubbing, but I like to hear from the horses...

    S3 8v - Will 19”/9.0j/ET40 fit?

    Found these, which claim to be ET40 and 8.5j https://www.customwheeloffset.com/wheel-offset-gallery/831313/2016-audi-a3-z-performance-zp09-air-ride-technoligies-lifted

    S3 8v - Will 19”/9.0j/ET40 fit?

    My understanding was that the ET/offset I could buy for my 2017 S3 was between ET45-52 But I’ve never had any confirmation on that. Also have read elsewhere that 9.0j will not fit. Just been offered my ideal wheels at a great price, but in 19”/ET40/9.0j, so hoping there is someone out there...
