I'm not saying put 235's on, i'm saying 235's are correct for 8.5j rim.
What i was originally referring to is IMHO that the CH-R's are wrong fitment for the A3/S3. Hell i love these rims and if they did them in same fitment as my CH blacks then they'd be on my car pronto.
So as per OP, if it...
Running low with stretch is 'scene' in my book.
The OP is running a S3, so i'm assuming HE does drive it accordingly. So i'm offering advice based on this fact...........simples!!
To the OP, 225 on 8.5" rim will look like Rico's pic of 215 on 8" rim, slightly worse really. So has been...
While it may not be 'scene' stretch, there is definately stretch. Have you ever seen a car manufacturer run a 215 on 8 " rim?, no! I don't understand the point of having a tyre with rim protection and the wheel protruding past this...............kind er tells you it's not meant to be.
CK's can rub slightly when lowered on H&R's so how do Rimstyle think that CH-R's wont when although 2mm better offset are 1/2" wider meaning 4mm further out than CK's. They will rub the fender screw even with 225's.
Do you want scene or a properly fitting tyre with some rim protection?
Don't forget the CH-R's are 8.5" rim width as opposed to 8" rim on CK's and so a 235 section tyre is best. This together with ET46/48 offset will mean slight rubbing.
The CK's are ET44 and just miss rubbing unless lowered heavily.
Just in case you wasn't aware and it affected your decision.
Yeah, noticed that's been the case for a few weeks and only realised yesterday that the version 2 is out shortly, hence why they are probably phasing out stock country wide.
I'm running ( and have done since new ) 34psi Fr & 38psi Rr.
I'm running Goodyear Assy's on mine in 225-35-19 flavour and over the last 15k they have been superb. Still a 3k left in them but changing in next few week to...............Michelin PSS.
BTW: The Goodyears are £145 + fitting each at Camskills, so not that expensive either.
Welcome to the 'Aberdeen' club.
Think i saw your car parked up recently, as it caught my eye. Don't see many Imola S3's. Could've been in DL's carpark by chance, could it ?
Coming on the Aberdeen meet on the 7th May ?.
Really, someone likes / trusts them!!!!........muppets. There's a particular patronising service guy that knows less than the receptionist that has come close to a good slap a few times.
Clark Motorsport in Kintore is highly recommended and getting my business later this week.
You guys need to realise the sarcasm in my post................
Why the **** would anyone pay £210 for Aberdeen Audi to adjust the alignment when i can pay trusted professional outfit £69 + adjustments ?.
I have nightmares IF i have to put car in to Audi for warranty work.
