I had ET45 (on pictures) 8.5" large

Now new wheels are ET60 9" large
Tyre 225
So tyre on wheel is OK

But someone said ET45 will hit the arm.
So I need et40.

So better I take ET40.
A guy said (not sure its true) ET45 with 9" large will hit the control arm
""19x9 et45 will not fit on the front of your car. It will hit the control arm. You'll need a 5mm spacer.""
So I need ET40
Great if you don't hit when driving :) i'll take 20mm spacers to go from et60 to et40.

I really want the Hartmann R8 V10 Replicas...but wife hates them :screwy:, what's everyone else think? I want them bad! Not the best photoshop job...I've got Eibach springs so mine wouldn't be as low as Dion's white CC...opinions?

Personnally I'd not put wheels with black, on a black car.
I really dont like black wheels for black cars !
Best is HYPERSILVER
My city I see A5 SPORTBACK with hypersilver, and its so good looking color !!
Just saw a CC with RS6 wheels, its nice

They are not only looking heavy
They ARE really heavy
When I took off the copy wheel from the car, then put the OEM, my god, at least some KG more on the OEM !

TOUAREG OEM WHEELS
ATHEO model
(never saw a copy, rare wheels)
ET60

Seriously I think I really lost some HP, but nevermind, 200hp is ok ;)

they are still wrapped in oem tires (which i know will not fit)
front's are 245/??/18

the front wheels are 18 x 8.5 et 35
the rear wheels are 18 x 9 et 40
I have h&r sports/fk shocks sitting at home --- car is still oem


will et 40 x 9 inch wheel rub on a cup kit?
and any other info is greatly appreciated

Hello

285 is toooo large for 9" :sly:

I have 9x19 with 225 and back its rubbin' when we're 5 on the car
Front is rubbin' also when i'm alone and take a big pothole.
And i have ET45 !!
ET40 + 285 :thumbdown: will not fit !!
It will fit, but not good looking, and can't go down with coilovers.
