    19' wheel fitment

    Guest-only advertisement. Register or Log In now!
    I got my buddies 19' rotor wheels ET 43 possibly from a newer s4 or a5/s5
    And I tried to put them on my 2001 a6 2.7T and they rub the brakes
    Anyone have experience with these wheels?
    I'm thinking a 10mm spacer all around will work, thoughts? Thanks

    Was it the brakes or the upper control arm?

    Anyway I have B8 S4 peelers on my Allroad and 20 mm spacers work really well

    It seems the back of wheel spoke rubs the calipers
    Appreciate it

    Make sure the spacers are hub centric and not cheapies!

    You'll need 57.1 - 66.56 hubcentric rings as well as whatever spacers you decide on.

    I've had a few different sets of 19" wheels and they're usually 8.5"-9" wide, around low ET40 or so and they always rub. SOME may fit, but with 19's I'd just assume you're going to need spacers to fit at all /properly.

    So what factory wheels will clear the jumbo brake calipers on the early 2.7t vehicles without spacers, or with minimal spacers?
