Will this work?

Hey guys,

I have searched endlessly for info on this to no avail, but basically I want to know if the offset and tyres on the set-up I'm looking at will work.

The sizes I've been looking at are:
19x9.5 ET25
19x11 ET30

I'm running Eibach springs (-1" F/-0.5" R) and was hoping to use these wheels along with 265/30 & 295/30 PSS's. I don't track the car, just want them for grip/looks and don't want any rub (except the front liner at full lock which I'm not too concerned about).

Has anyone run this set-up or know someone who has? I don't want to order the wheels from overseas and put a big deposit down and they don't fit

Thanks!

Julian.

edit: I'm also open to suggestions on what WILL fit. Even wider rears or different brand tyres..?

Hey Julian

Stock is:
Front: 9 x 19 ET31
Rear: 10 x 19 ET25

You may rub the inner liners on full lock up front with 265's. No biggie there though.

I am stock. Rear: I have a 5mm spacer on rear (275's) and it is pretty close. I tried the fronts' 12mm spacers on the rear and it would have rubbed. Your net to the outside will be -5mm(ET) + 12.5mm, so only 7.5mm, but ride your lowered height (net 7.5mm with those tyre profiles) could be an issue?

Could always roll the guard a fraction. The thickened inner tab of where the rear bumper meets the arch seems to be where they rub. It could be trimmed.

Thanks for the reply, Ian.

Yeah, makes sense. I'm heading over to the wheel shop tomorrow so they can take a look now. Maybe I can take a peek at yours when I see you soon too.. Are your RS3's more of a square or rounded tyre?

Not too keen on modifying the bodywork either. If I had to cut the plastic on the rear bumper - that would be ok, but don't want to touch any metal panels.

Sure, FE's arriving soon?

RS3 are squared off, more than PSS

I sent an email yesterday just to double check and they were ordered the day I spoke to you about it, so not too far hopefully.

Wow ok, I know PSS's are really square so that's good to know.
