i got them off ebay i'll be honest theyre reps but $hit they look exactly the same... the whole order plus shipping was 689 but remember that was for 18s. am i gonna have trouble fitting these on my car now? the guy whos doing the repairs on my car said anything over 18 might be a little hard, but he never said impossible.

yeah i think you are going to have to roll your fenders so there wont be any rubbing issues

jrau13 has a lip on his so they look about 1" smaller. The RS4 reps have spokes going all the way to the edge so it'll look overly huge. I would go with 18's for RS4 reps

they'll fit just fine. you just need to choose the correct tire size.

I'll bet that was a nice surprise [:D] You won't rub, unless you plan on turning!

free upgrade? thats actually gonna cost you. 19''s with low profile tires will be a teeney weeney bit more than 18''s

You'll only have to roll the fenders if you're lowered. Of course if you're not lowered you might as well buy some BFG MTs and take her off-road.

it should say on the inside of the rim what size it is no matter what.

lol if you measure the rims with tape measurer its gonna be bigger then the actual rim size, what you need to do is look on the back of the whel and you should see numbers there you will see 18.... since there is no lip your gonna want 18's 19's will look to big, if you had a lip 19's would be ok

yeah, my 18" rims with a measuring tape actually measures 19.5". true 19's should measure 20+"

HAHAHHA...

You should feel pretty lucky if you just "got" 19's and not the 18's nice mistake IMO

It may be a free upgrade on the rim, but you WILL pay when you buy the tires. Your going to spend at least $200 for the difference between 18" and 19" tires, not to mention that the 19" tires wont last as long. But boy do they look saweeeet!! I have 235/35/19 and they work fine with no rubbing, and I did have to roll my fender a little, but nothing a good body shouldn't be able to do with a baseball bat, and about 30-40 minutes. It's not that hard, and I hope everything works out for you.
