As the subject say, I am hoping to hear that I wont have any problems running 19" replica Alessio RS4 wheels on a b5.5 Variant. They are fitted with BFGoodrich KDW S 235/35 tires (cold be 245/35..not sure). The wheels are a ET35 offset.

My car has a 1.5 inch drop... nothing drastic. I am not interested in rolling the fenders to make these fit right. Any comments on the wheels or tires?

Thanks
nick

edit: Alessio replicas...not OEM

Heh. Way to let the cat out of the bag, Thiago... I'm waiting for some better light this afternoon. I'll post some pics tonight.
