Hi guys
I’m considering to buy a pair of RS6 style wheels for my A3 2.0 TDI 2016 Sportback. It’s lowered with Eibach Sportline springs (35-40/45mm). Currently running on wheels that measure 19” 8.0 ET49 with 225/35-19 tires.
The wheels I’m looking at has following measures: 19” 8.5 ET42.
As you can see on my attacted picture, currently I have plenty of space and could use some spacers.
My question is; are anyone else running this setup I’m considering, will the wheels stick out (espessically in front) and if anyone is running same setup could you please share a picture :)

Kind regards
Morten

Check this thread.

Thanks! Though I can’t really figure whether 19 8.5J ET42 will stick too far out in front. Most people running this setup in sedan, which I can understand is wider/got more space.

You need to look through the above thread to give you better idea. User Steph67 seems to have 8.5J with equivalent of ET 38 Front and ET 36 Rear on Sportback.
