    Hey folks.

    Just a quickie.
    I have a set of 19x8.5j rims in the garage from my A4 S Line 59 plate.
    Will they fit my S3 8P. If yes, what tyres do you run, what problems can there be.
    If no, thats cool. Was just wondering.

    Thanks in advance for any help.

    Hey Chez !!

    Long time no speak. How are you mate.?
    Thats what I was thinking.
    The only problem is they still have my 255/35 tyres on from the A4.
    Their just gonna be to wide.
    I know peeps run 19's on S3's.
    I was thinking about buying new rims, but if I can put my old ones on that would be sweet.

    What's the offset (just as important as the width)?

    Offset is good but the 255 tyres will rub, ideally they need to be 225's.

    As above, 225s will be your best bet. I run 19x8.5 et43 rotors with 225/35/19 tyres on my s3 and don't have any issues.
