I just bought a set of 19x8 rims. I need to buy some tires now,so please what size would you recommend? I have an intraxx lowering spring kit to install which I believe is a 2" drop.

looks like 235/35/19 is perfect size.

I had 225/35/19 on mine and know of another guy which had 235/35 but could not lower it as much and he had 215/35 for the shows. That was a big stretch tho.

Think I will be ok with 1.75 inch drop up front on 235/35/19 and 1.5 inch in rear ? Or would I be better with 225/35/19. These rims are 19x8 with +35 offset which I think is factory offset. All four need to be the same because of quattro.

235 you might occasionally rub, but you will have a slightly thicker side wall and bigger contact patch
225 the side wall is thinner, watch out for those potholes

8 inch wide is what counts. i wouldn't run more than 235s. or lower than 225. i run 225. but with lowered rides...you can rub. go higher than 235 on a 8 inch wide rim and the tires can become chunky on the side wall.

i'm 25.25" in the front
and 25.5" in the back...225 is about all i can get away with without rolling the fender with my rims.
