Wondering if i could get these on, note i do not want 'super stretched tyres' though lol.

Rather 225s all round.

19x8 ET32 for front - 19x8.5 ET34 for rear (or 19x9.5 et 36)

Or am i asking for too much poke here? As i dont particularly want to shave the wheel or even the hub to make these fit ideally. Structurally not good for the wheel but damn i want these wheels on

(fit s3 2008)

I think 19x8.5 will be fine.

Im running 19x9.5 et 50 on the rear of my s3 and with no camber they sit pretty flush i added -2 camber so they tucked.

9.5et 36 will come past your arch alot and you may need camber

anything lower than et40 will poke without some camber adjustment. so et 35 is going to be sticking out and will also require a fair amount of stretch on the tyres (prob 215) i would stay away from that though as the ride will be horrible

Help fitment N8 :laugh: What am I some sort of wheel god? You should be okay, 225 will sit nicely on the 8J & averagely on the 8, but bearing in mind this is an S3 so we always need to think about the power. It just depends on how low you want to go/run it, so trial & error is always the key, you may possibly need some negative camber on the back.

Anyway, I've got diseases to cure so better get back to it :laugh:

215/35/19 easily mate and rear camber and it will still be realy wide and may still rub a little

personally would go 215 on the 8 and 225 on the 8.5, dont think you'll have any fitment issues tho!

18x8J ET45 or 18x7.5J ET45 fits perfect
