      OK, less than 100 miles on the car so far, but thinking of a second set of wheels for some DOT-R tires. Perhaps some of our overseas friends who have had the car for a couple years can help.


      Current Ride Height/Projected Ride Height: Stock TT RS
      Wheel Specs (Height, Width, Offset): 19x9 et52
      Wheel Brand & Model: OEM titanium 'rotor' wheels
      Tire Size (if appicable): 255/35/19
      Question: Are there any 18x9.5 wheels that will fit without issues? I'm thinking of maybe trying a 265/35/18 tire. Maybe Yokohamas or Toyos. It seems like there are more tire choices with an 18" wheel.

      Any input would be appreciated. Also, is the lug bolt pattern 5x112 on the TTRS? Anyone know the center bore? What offset would fit over the brakes without using spacers?

      Thanks!

      FWIW, a 265/35 will fit on an 18x9 wheel without issue. That should broaden your choices a bit.

      Also, be careful about your front brakes with 18s. My stock 18x9s didn't fit over the TTRS brakes, and I'm sure it will be hit-or-miss whether aftermarket 18s fit. The problem wasn't with with spoke clearance (so offset is no help), but rather with the barrel. The TTRS uses 370 mm rotors compared to the 345 mm (I think) rotors of the 3.2 TT and TTS.

      no problem, Bill dont stray away from the CB differences when it comes to wheels... there are many options to adapt a hub bore to a wheel bore, depending what youre planning to do with the fitment you can use one of the following.

      Custom Spacers
      Custom PCD Adapters
      Hubcentric Rings

      easiest being the hubcentric rings but be sure to get the metal kind, the plastic/rubber kind lead to vibrations at highway speeds

      this is true, sometimes youll need to use spacers to give you that added clearance depending on the wheel spoke design, offset, etc. best way to figure it out is to use a tape measure and depend less on the online calculators

      The TT Shop shows this picture on their TTRS brake upgrade page.



      I have no idea how they got that wheel to fit, because I couldn't even get the bolts to line up and I have the same wheel. Perhaps the European 10-spoke wheel has a different manufacturer that gave it a wider barrel. Regardless, be very careful selecting wheels for those massive TTRS brakes.

      could it be that they were ninja and shaved a little bit of the back of the wheel spokes to make it fit? (sounds outlandish but you never know), or maybe they fit spacers?

      i do agree, i dont know how the hell they fit that wheel over those TTRS brakes

      Yeah - it took 8mm hubcentric spacers to get them on my 2009 TTS!

      They said no spacers. I was bummed when I found they didn't fit my wheels. Oh well.

      Eibach springs-1.3 drop front .08 rear
      Tire size-245 40 18
      Wheel 18x8
      Can't decide between et35 or et45. I would like to keep my existing tire size, they're almost new. Prefer the look of the et35 (equivalent of running 5mm spacers). Concerned about rubbing. Any inputs or opinions would be greatly appreciated.

      Tough one to say for sure due to the drop. For comparison purposes, my 18 x 8.5 ET 35 with 245/40's had some minor rubbing. The 45's would be the safe bet and adding 5 mm spacers would provide a compromise allowing for the better stance. That said, the 35's will probably be ok and you can always fiddle with camber or eventually replace the tires with something that's a less square (if not 235's).

      Steve nailed it on the head. We have adjustable control arms. Just be advised camber does wear your tires more

      Looking to install 18x9.5 +40 with stock tire size 245/40-18. Do you think I will have any fitment issues. That's 18mm out from stock. It looks to be perfect in the back. The front looks a little iffy.

      What are your plans with lowering the car?

      Have a little closer look at the fenders in the front- the front fenders a little flared out than the rear. I have a square set up on my car and the front is tucking in more than the rear.

      Just bought an 09 3.2L MT quattro Roadster. It has the 10 spoke 18" bicolor rims with run flat tires. I've got plenty of time, but what do people recommend for winter? I intend to drive this most of the year. i want to maximize traction in the winter months and I'm thinking I should go with 17" rims and a slightly narrower winter tire. Will that pose any problems or is it totally unnecessary?

      thanks
