      What do people think I should go with in terms of tyre size - stock height Audi S3 8V Sedan.

      I am fitting these rims to my S3 sedan (pictured below). They are 19x8.5 +43.

      I am tossing up between 245/35/19 or 255/35/19 in tyre size. I gather the 255 will fit ok in this sizing?

      What would you go for? Any help appreciated. I like the idea that I will have a slightly higher sidewall with the 255 so the ride might be a tad bit more compliant and softer.

      245 35 19 is perfect
      do not go with 255

      Thanks for the info on this thread, I ordered 245/35/19 Michelin Pilot Sport 4S tires for my 2015 S3 with Magnetic Ride and ECS Tuning flush spacer kit. I'll post pictures of how they fit after they get installed tomorrow.

      Tires are the best mod, I can't wait to be off these Continentals

      Does anyone have a picture or any information on fitting 245/35/19 tyres on a Sportback, preferably on the OEM 8x19 or aftermarket 8.5x19 rims? I know that sportbacks are narrower than the sedans and can't take as wide wheels as the sedans can and I was unable to find any pictures on this setup online so far.

      Only Sedans here in USA
      19x8.5 +47 down to 40 is epic. Closer to 40 the better.
      245/35 wants 19x8.5”
      This combo is perfect on this platform!!!

      2016 A3 sedan here. For those running 19x8.5 wheels with 245/35 rubber with unmodified suspensions, are wheel spacers needed?

      Thanks!

      Forgot to mention that i currently run 19 x 9 Acari Racing wheels with 225x35 rubber. Looking to add some sidewall but would prefer not to use spacers.

      Is the offset of the wheels the same? You should have plenty of room. Use an online calculator:
      https://www.willtheyfit.com/index.ph...h=9&offset2=30

      (I run the RS3 stagger on 9" wide wheels 255 up front 235 in the back. Lowered on 034 springs and front camber plates. plenty of room up front for 265 but price differential wasn't worth it.)
