    Want to know what tyre size people have gone for.

    Have got a set of CH's in 19 to go on the S3. Have 30mm springs on the car, what tyre size should I go for? 215 35 19? I prefer a wider tyre? Would 235 35 19 be ok ? Planning on 10mm spacers at the rear.

    I'm running 235/35/19 (i think lol) with no issues dropped about 30-40 on ap's and rear tie bars think the offset is 30 to.

    Faz I'm still running your MTM alloys (albeit 3 have been replaced) and was running 235/35/19 all round. However, it needed spacers on the front to avoid rubbing the inner arch on full lock which was an MOT failure. I have just replaced the fronts with Pilot Sport 225/35/19 and removed the spacers on the front. Car drives much better without the spacers and is more direct and no rubbing issues with the narrower tyres. I've had these tyres before which were fantastic but the weather ain't exactly great at the moment to make a comparison. You shouldn't have any trouble with 235/35/19 on the back but would recommend a narrower tyre on the front. I would try and avoid fitting spacers if you can.

    Faz, I have ran MTM 19s with 235/35 tyres, 10mm front and 15mm rear spacers and lowered with no catching at all. Lowered with H&R springs and forge adjustable tie bars.

    I'm sure 20s will fit, if you can find the right tyre size. It will ruin the handling and ride, but you will look good at your local wine bar! Lol
