Keep in mind my car was 9.5 ET40 w/275's, -1 camber. If it were raised a bit with zero camber, the fitment should be perfect. Next setup will be the 9.5 ET35 non-staggered w/235 & 255's... we'll see how it goes haha.

What tire sizes you going with? 9.5 ET38 looks like a pretty good fit with 265's from what I've seen.
Yea, Im just not at all a fan of the 'stretched' look.... so I knew I wanted some nice padding... my last set up on my A3 was V710s 19x8.5 all the way around with 235/35s... they were pretty good, better than the 225/35s I had on them before that... This time I went with 275/35 and 245/35. I LOVE the rear especially because they are more concave than the front... The rubber does stick out just a hair past the fender with the 7mm spacers... when I lower it if its a problem then I will change the spacers out... I dont really like to camber them so Ill prob zero them out with the coilovers.. but again im not going super low.. i usually keep the suspension super stiff and an occasional rub in the rear is not a big deal depending on where its rubbing... My A3 would rub over big dips, but just on the inside of the fender.... The front is where i worry more, because on canyon runs I dont want it rubbing and damaging the front fender...

Heres the set up I had on the A3:

Looking at those tires again, its amazing the difference between a 235/35 and a 245/35...
