    Now you are talking wheels, 20" are my favorites but not an easy fit unless you find the 8.5j version and then you need to get just the right size tyre.

    Audi didn't make a 19" version for some reason went straight from 18" to 20" so any similar style in 19" will be aftermarket as I've had a set.

    those tyres are just way too big chap, you need the 8.5j rims really and with rubber a lot less width.
    I've been on the lookout for ages for another set at a sensible price, no joy as yet.

    depends on offset to start with but I would run a different tyre size really .

    I'm guessing that using a 5mm spacer (I think that would be about right to miss the front strut?), then the tyre would hit the arch. Mind you, soon to fit new wings and I can roll them before fitting...............

    I run 235/35 19 on ET43 and had tyre rubbing issues , fitted a 5mm spacer and its solved the problem , but that's with a 235/35 and your looking at 255/40 so the tyre width has increased 10mm each side so it's cancelled out the spacer and still 5mm closer .

    That's was with 255 ,
    I had the same tyre rubbing with 235 , not on that scale but enough to ruin one tyre over a short period of time.

    So ideally, 8x19 ET48/50 with 235/35 boots or 8.5 x 19 ET56 with 235/35 boots?
    Go to 20's and the tyre ratio needs to be 225/35?

    Not really chap.
    8j or 8.5j 19 is fine with 235/35 or less .
    Offsets from et43 to et35 .
    8j et35 with 235/35 works fine as does 8.5j 235/35 with ET35 .
    As you go up in offset number you are going inwards, hence why Et35 moves the wheel outwards to the wheel arch so less likely to touch suspension parts but may rub on wheel arch, its all down to combination of offset , rim size and tyre size, tyre brand can also play a part as well as not all tyres are equal.
    A4 b7 oem offset is ET43 or 45 on 18" so you need to start from that point.

    Aaaargh!

    Thanks Rob.

    Last time I messed with ET was for my old Lotus Carlton - old skool RWD with the rears being 10x18, ET3 with 285/35 tyres and 10mm wheel spacer. The ET worked the other way..........IIRC.

    Good stuff on here so far and a great reference for people!

    Exactly what I have looked at, but tyres would need replacing with 225 (comfortable) or 235 at the very max..............I think!

    Lets say for this example, the oem A4 B7 18" s-line fitment is 8j et43 fitted with 235/40 18", if you are going upto 19" and wish to keep the 235 width you need to go with a 235/35 as the rolling spec etc are all most the same .
    Yes its a lower profile and not everyone likes going lower but its not that bad to be honest, well its fine if you have changed to better damper/springs.
    When going 20" it gets more complicated as logically you'd think just go down a profile again , so 235/30 20" but that is a pretty low profile tyre so not really ideal.
    that is when you have to start thinking carefully about other tyre widths and profiles to get around the problem such as going to a narrow tyre but with a higher profile etc, its doable but you need to do you're homework very carefully first.

    19" are a slightly different pattern aswell, they have a slopping edge on the rim whereas the 20" have a more defined recess.
    The spokes look thinner on the 20" thus making the rim look less bulky than the 19" or 18"

    Ajax did black/anthracite I think with a red pearl I think. They looked so good on his car.
    If Im thinking of 20' might had a look at some rotors with that deep concave.
    Thanks for the info Rob

    I'm still a little confuzzled (doesn't take much these days!) because I thought that the lower the ET, the closer to the strut the inner wheel rim sits - but seems to be the opposite....doesn't it? Isn't it? Jumpers for goalposts?

    I've found some that I like - 5x112 8.5 x 19 ET 45 with 225/35 x 19 and 235/35 x 19 so these should fit OK, shouldn't they?

    My brain hurts...........

    ET43 is oem offset for 8j 18" alloys on b7 platform so 45 is only 2mm more inward , not a problem .
    8.5j will be approx 8mm closer inboard and 6mm outboard so tyre width choice is a more important consideration , going up to the ET35/38 etc will be better though.

    If they have 225 then less likely to rub than with 235 on et45.
    That said not every fitment does rub on the fronts with 8.5j et45/43, tyre brand does make a difference as the rim saver section of the tyre can be larger on some tyres than others.
    An 8.5j rim would normally run a 245 tyre hence why many fit 225 and 235 as the small stretch can make all the difference.
    fitting 8.5j is not a big deal and need not be complicated provided you factor in the effects of to much offset inboard and outboard and tyre width.
    I was running 8.5j ET35 19" with 235 and it was spot on, changed to ET43 and probs appeared inboard on the fronts.

    easy way to work it out is this.
    As we know based on 18" 8j s-line fitment is ET43 with 235/40 tyre , changing to a higher number, so in this case 44 and upwards offset will move the rim closer to the suspension parts and away from the wheel arch lip.
    Add in the width of the rim change , so 8.5j is approx. 12mm wider adds 6mm per side, you can see where the probs stem from a few mm here and and a few mm their all add up .
    Spacing can counter this but then you are moving the rim outwards so allways a chance of rubbing outboard, moreso rears now.

    Try this , turn your steering to full lock and get behind the wheel and see how close the tyre is now to the leg, try and get a finger between the sidewall and leg and you'll see what I mean.

    Don't forget tyres are not solid fixed items , they are filled with air so flex around under load and cornering, if you only have a few mm clearance, when the tyre flexes it may then rub, which is the problem I encountered recently, solved it with a 5mm spacer which wasn't my ideal situation but served the purpose.
    Add in to the mix if BBK are fitted its a whole new ball game as offsets become crucial to clear the calipers

    example,
    first set are 8.5j 19" ET45 and and wouldn't clear the calipers , second set were oem 8.5j 19" B8 ET43 and had loads of clearance but I had the tyre sidewall rubbing issue.
