    I think it was Elevens that has the 19x10 rotiform MIA's. not sure what his offset was but sounded like he made it work

    I have 19x10 Rotiforms, tried both ET 35 (MIA) with 5mm spacer. Now running same size wheel with ET25. Very aggressive, but no spacer, and most of the time no rubbing. the Michelin 275/30 R19 Super Sports are not the widest tire and stretch a little, so it helps with the rubbing issue. R888s are very square and wide, and would for sure rub on this config.

    Thanks for the help guys. Wheel calculators for 25ET are saying inner clearance of 14mm less and outer position extends an extra 24mm. I'd be surprised to see that wheel fit based on those numbers.

    just as added input, my stock wheels with 10mm spacers and H&R lowering springs rub. I rolled the fender lip, so it's not rubbing on the front fenders anymore, but I had to cut the plastic fender liner, and the wheels will rub on that occasionally. No big deal other than a scraping sound.

    I remember asking Elevens for his wheel offset, meaning to memorize it forever, but of course now I've forgotten

    No spacers and no rubbing...fit perfect

    Hey mate, I'm running stock B7 RS4 wheels with 255/35/19 tyres, the rims are actually 19*9 with a 29 offset not 9.5. Just to keep the numbers correct.

    OK Thanks. Just going off what I was told when I bought them from someone..never measured them. Could be 9..could be 9.5...I'll check when I can..you're probably right.

    Yeah not sure about yours or course but the B7 RS4 wheels are definately 9', would love to know if yours are 9.5 and how well they fit and what size and type of tyre you are running. I think tyre brand makes a lot of difference with rubbing.

    OK Confirmed. (I forgot I had my front wheels off for my 6 speed conversion.)
    They are in fact Volk, VR G2, 19x9.5, ET29, with Michelin Pilot Super Sports, 275/30/19. No rubbing anywhere with stock height DRC.

    Nice, that's great to know, how do the 275s look on the 9.5' rims? I am trying to figure out whether to go 10' or 9.5 but looks like I will definitely be running 275/30/19s Super Sports now!

    Rotoiform Mia's 19X10 ET 35. Fit well with 5mm spacers up front, none in the rear. No rubbing at all after removing the Upper most fender liner Screw on each side. This was with 275-35-19 Hankook Ventus tires. However when I switched to The Michelins (pilot Super Sports) of the same size, I experienced a little bit of rubbing on turns. So I used a rubber mallet to bang the inner fender lip closed. Now no rubbing at all. I guess there is no standard on tire measurements and that tires with the same dimensions may vary in actual width........

    I have finally fitted my MTM 19" X 9.5 Bimoto wheels, ET30 ordered from Horchaus, Canada and shipped directly from Germany. I tried to fit Michelin PSS 275/35/19 because I thought I knew better than MTM. I was wrong, and it rubbed the upright, even with the 5mm spacers that I had included in the order.

    Removed tires and installed Michelin PSS 275/30/19 and had no problems at all. No rubbing and a good fit at ET30. ET25 looked too wide for me, and the wheels were not flush with the fenders. Currently sitting at stock ride height with DRC. For now.

    275's look great and the new wheels (and car) feel much more solid. The wheels are heavy compared to many others but it all seems fine and I am happy with them.

    Wheels look good, but good lord it looks like a bunny rabbit getting ready to leap. Just my opinion but its sitting way to high. I guess its that DRC thing. Good luck with the Wheels..................

    Ride height - I hear you.

    DRC, phhhh. Just waiting for it to fail. So it won't fail because I am waiting. So maybe I should stop waiting.

    Fold-flat still in the trunk with the nice design and black finish.
