    I agree, I have driven both. Couldn’t tell difference between Mag Ride and standard in normal driving but when pushed Mag feels good. As for tyres I bought x2 235 19 P Zero A0 in France last month for £220 . Getting a couple more next week!! ****** Brexit is screwing import costs.

    If you mean by 'He' that indeed Audi fitted 19" then yes they did, at the factory........

    Sorry but 20" isn't really something i'm wanting to fit.........it's perfectly fine on 19" wheels.

    Because imported products are 25% + more expensive now due to the £ being at a low of 1.11 rather than 1.40 in 2015.....and that's before WTO terms.

    They are hardly really expensive in this country.

    Instead of moaning about it just suck it up.

    I think I've mentioned this before, but I'm sure the few years prior to Brexit, the average FX rate against the euro was 1.20. So not a huge difference. And when Italy goes bump, expect that trend to reverse.

    Currently running staggered setup with pirelli’s. Front tires are shot and want to go for a square setup on Michelin ps4s 245/35/19 or 235/35/19.

    Stock rims, tires size.
    front: 19” 8,5j ET53, tires, 255/30/19
    Back: 19” 8j ET49, tires 235/35/19

    So i’m asking if I go with the square setup on stock staggered rims, what size recommended and are people going for.

    I read somewhere that the Michelins are wider compared to other tire brands.

    Many in Australia run 245/35 on The staggered rims, works well. They do run wider, will probably be a tad bigger than your pirelli 255s.

    Thanks mate, i’m pretty sure I’ll give the 245’s a go then. Cheers.

    I have the standard 235's all round on standard 19" wheels. Can I just fit the wider 255 tyres at the front or will I need different (wider) front wheels too?

    You will need 8,5j width wheel to fit a 255 tire. You can find the size of your wheels by looking on the inside spokes. I believe the maximum with on a 8j wheel recommended is 245.
