    looking to get some new alloys and a friend is selling his brand new alloys as he’s decided to sell up. His car is rwd and the tyres on it are
    35 profile front but 30 profile on rear, I assume this would cause problems on the rs3 with it been 4wd ?

    Thanks

    RS3 staggered set up is

    Front 255/30/19

    Rear 235/35/19

    So you could rotate them assuming they are the correct offset etc.

    What size are the wheels?

    I'm on a square setup 255/35/19 and no issues. TC kicks in sometimes but with it on sport it never occurs so it's the first thing I do when I get in the car.

    As mentioned before the fronts are usually 255 and rear 235 on the staggered setup however with an ARB and a solid set of tyres such as MPS4S you won't feel any understeer unless you're on the track imo. Even pushing the car hard won't upset it so I don't see a need for a staggered setup.

    But to answer your question you can use the 265 but I'd think it needs to be a minimum 9" rim width. Depends on the offset too obviously.
