    Question Raderwerks 19x9.5 tire and fitment help!

    Guest-only advertisement. Register or Log In now!
    Okay so I'm about to order a set of raderwerks 19x9.5 et 35 and I'm trying to figure out what will fit and look good. So I'm think 235/40/R19 but I'm wondering about the fitment with the fenders, whether things will be flush and will I need to roll the fenders? Also these will be fitting on a B6 A4 USP Avant with bilstein PSS9's

    Thanks

    What are you rolling on now? Do you have the specs of your current wheels? With that you can measure how flush you'll be and determine how much clearance you got.

    If those measurements are correct, with 19x9.5 ET35 wheels, it will stick out a little more than an inch (27mm to be exact) from your current wheels. Grab a ruler and measure a little more than 1" from your current wheel's lip and that's about where the raderwerks will sit.

    Okay I'm confused i thought the diff in ET was only 8 and isn't ET measured in MM meaning that ET 35 would be the same as 35mm? Cause with an extra inch i'm 1/2 inch pass the fenders which will make it very tough to fit a set of 19's in there with Coilovers... No saying you're wrong you clearly know more about wheel than I. I'm just trying to understand

    Just to clarify, 19x8 ET35 is not the same as 19x9.5 ET35. You have to remember, the raderwerks is an extra 1.5 inches wider. So you have to figure out where that extra 1.5 inches of wheel will go (inner or outer side of the wheel). That's where offsets come in.

    So, if you measure that only have 0.5 of an inch to your fender with your current wheels (which are 8" widths ET43) and you want to be flush with 9.5" width wheels, then you should be looking into 19x9.5 ET48 instead. That will give you that extra 0.5" to be flush with the fender.

    Double check your measurements and use the following link to confirm.

    Heres a neat calculator if youre wondering about width, offset and tirespecs.

    I know people running 9,5x19" ET35 with 225/35-19… not sure how it will be with 40profile tires tho.
    Static, what else?

    No worries bro. Once you find out your specs, let us know and we can figure it out. Keep us updated

    depending how low you go and what size tires you will run, no rolling should be needed.

    I'm thinking 235/35/19 or possibly 245?

    245 on a 9.5 gives a slight stretch. 235 gives more of a stretch.

    More stretch provides more clearance. Its really your preference and how low you want to go.

    Okay so talking to raderwerks they make a et 32/35/50 the guy I've been talking to recommended not going with a staggered setup for front because of turning radius. I found a guy in town that is running 19s with a et 35 and I really like the way it looks... So now I'm not so worried about them poking out, but is running 9.5s in the front really going to be a problem? Should I go with staggered? Or should I try and get 9.5s et 35 for the rear and 9.5 et 50 for the front?

    Thanks for your help! sorry, I never thought this would be as challenging is its turning out to be.

    you need to roll the fronts...theres nothing to roll in the back im running miro 111 with 235/35/19 thats with a minimal stretch on the tire... with a 9.5 wheel and depending if you have coilover lowering springs or stock set up there is def work that goes into making them fit right so if your up for the work involved go for it they look mean...if not just go with an 8.5 with no worries at all
