I'll be purchasing 19 Inch Falken Koblenz Wheels and was wondering what suspension would I be safe with. Of course, I was leaning towards the Bilstein with sport H&R springs but maybe race springs if I can get away without rubbing.

I believe their wrapped in 245 35 19 but will narrow them down to 225 or 235.

What's the width and offset of those wheels? Our fitment for b5's is 19x8.5 et35 with a recommended tire sizing of 235/35/19. The majority of people who use springs with a mild drop < 1.5" don't experience rubbing.

They're 19 x 8.5 with 38mm offset.

I was into those wheels for a while. But one thing you may want to take into consideration is the weight of those bad boys. I wanted them in 18x9 (they do offer them in 18x9 with a 5x112 bolt pattern, but it seems that they don't on that website), and those ones weighed in at 32lbs per wheel (same weight as the ones you want). Sort of sways the mind of looks over performance. Just something to take into consideration. Beautiful wheel, though.

Oh yea, the general concensus is 235/35 wheel in 19s for our vehicle.

Well my friend already has them and is getting rid of his B6 so I thought they would be a nice summer setup.

235/35/19 on sport springs should be just fine. I don't think you will rub, but roll the fenders if you need to.

+1, always going to be the possibility of rubbing, you probably won't get it, but just don't be surprised if it happens.
