I'm thinking about getting 19" RS4 reps. Will I need to roll the fenders on a 99.5 A4? H&R Coilovers being installed at the same time.

lol i'll be the jackass this time.

use the SEARCH button it works wonders.

oh btw you probably need to roll them, fit them in tires you like and put them on the car. if it rubs, roll them.

yea man, it depends on width of rim, offset, tire size, and drop height. w/out all of that info no one can tell you if you'll rub or not. you can potentially tuck w/out rolling fenders with certain 19" setups... [up]

Why do u want 19s? I hope ur not into the performance side of things, cuz they will slow ya down.

everyone wants to be a baller with 19s. Reality will set in after your first drive with them on.

Nope - decided on the 18"s. Any performance reasons to go with 17"s?

lighter wheels. more tire.

you'll still be able to turn [rolleyes] .
fitment is NOT an issue with 19s as long as you do a little research before you buy.
main concerns should be $, thinner rubber [harsh ride/less rim protection], and i guess performance... for those worried about fitment, you're only more likely to rub on 19s if you blindly make uninformed purchases... just wanted to put that out because it seems most of the time the majority of people on forums in general scare people away from things that deal with wheels, ride height, suspension stiffness, etc. you can usually go bigger, lower, and stiffer, than you think you can handle coming from what the majority of the people tell you in the forums... [wrench]

what may be "majority" may also be common sense.

it also may be, but in this case its not. common sense can't figure out fitment. you need to have tried and tested, do the math with the numbers, or speak to those with first hand experience.
the only place where common sense would apply here is realizing that with 19s you have thinner rubber as opposed to a smaller rim with bigger rubber thus making the overall diameter the same, which would mean there would be no reason to rub with a bigger rim, unless you go so big on the rim that you can't compensate with the tire...
