S5 OEM 19x9 et33 fit on MK2 TT
After a bunch of searching I wanted to share the final result.. the 255/35/19's that came on the wheels rubbed in the rear on big bumps even after grinding down the rear tabs. Although I don't think it would have damaged the tires or rear bumper much. The wheels werent balanced that I purchased so I decided to go with new tires Continental DWS 235/35/19. I havent heard any rubbing since. Would obv. like to lower the car in the future, but really like the difference in look already.

I am building a website/dedicated place for 8j/mk2 TTdiy's and information! I have use all the setups I could from this thread.
If you have anything you would like to add to my site post it here or message me. Thank you
in hope someone can answer this
I have 18x9 et52 with 245/40/18 tires on now
I found some 18x8 et48 with 245/40/18 tires
I want to be SURE that my tires will work on those rims... It is an inch narrower.... is that OK?
I checked I have lots of clearance so the -14 offset is ok....

The factory 18" bi-color wheels needed to be refinished so I decided to powdercoat them in gloss black a few months ago. They turned out even better than I expected! I then installed a new set of tires that tremendously improved the car -- I highly recommend a set of Michelin Pilot Sport 4S.

My wife has a 2009 Audi TTS convertible. Bought her Niche Methos 19x8.5 wheels with +42 Offset for Christmas and having issues.
I checked with a local tire guy I know and he researched and said to use 6mm spacers but they made it worse. They are rubbing on the inner wheel well.
Car is stock other than wheels, rotors and pads (no clearance issues with rotors) and APR Stage 2 which includes downpipe, fuel pump, water pump, intake and tune.
Any guidance is greatly appreciated!
HERE IS THE SETUP'S WE'VE TRIED
1.) Stock wheels 19x9 with Stock Tires 255/35 - worked great
2.) Stock wheels 19x9 with Track Tires 245/35 - worked great
3.) Niche wheels 19x8.5 +42 with Stock Tires 255/35 - rubbed some but not horrible
4.) Niche wheels 19x8.5 +42 with Stock Tires 255/35 with 6mm spacers - rubbed a lot worse
