Default SQ5 in winter mode - with Hartmann 19" peelers

Wheels are 19x8.5 with +25 offset.
Tires are Michelin Lattitude X-Ice Xi2 in 235/55/19.

Overall, I'm pleased with the look and fit of the 19's.
The wheels are much smaller visually, but it makes the wheel well gap less annoying to look at IMO.

They do look sharp. From a distance, I wouldn't even suspect winter tires.

I'm in Wisconsin and hoping to hold off a few more weeks before installing my new winter wheel and tire set.

Thanks guys.

I was actually thinking about getting grey or black lug caps to complete the look, but the bolts that Achtun!ng sent look just fine.

They look nice when clean. They get dirty very quickly, particularly with the messy Audi brake pads, and their design makes them hard to clean.

2013+ Audi brakes are no longer messy. I get very little brake dust with mine.

I have a 2013 S5 with the peelers, and the brake pads make a huge mess on the wheels. It's amazing that these pads last at all at the rate they lose material... It's so bad that after I wash my wheels, there are black stains of caked brake dust on my driveway.

What was the total cost of your set up. I just picked up my SQ5 on Thursday. Been looking for a winter set up. Do they need rings??

Don't have my papers with me, but it was approximately $2.2k , all in.

I basically paid the prices listed on the Hartmann and Tirerack sites respectively, plus shipping to Niagara Falls NY.

Did you need spacers with those wheels

No spacers required @ET25, the ET38's reportedly need 5mm spacers.
The wheels are hub centric.

Different bolts are required if you're coming from the 21" SQ5 wheels... Not sure if the same applies if you're coming from the 20".

i have 19 x 9.5 et 40 that I test fit and did not have any rubbing, fitted them with 255/50/19 snows. Interesting that the et38 needed spacers. It is a little tight, but the wheel spun freely without rubbing on anything.

Only way to be 100% sure is to do a test fit, but chances are that it would be a no go.

The bolt pattern and hub bore are fine, but an offset of 45mm on a 8.5 wheel would give you 12mm less clearance than stock. (Assuming identical wheel design profiles)

Very unlikely that it would fit.

Probably had a lot to do with the wheel design.
There are a few 19" ET38 wheels on the Hartman site that don't require spacers for that same reason.

What wheel is it?

If you like it that much, you could always try a test fit... you never know!
Worst case scenario, you could just get some spacers and be good to go.

I've lived with spacers on many of my past cars and they're not that big of a deal.
They were a better soloution than passing up on wheels I really liked. :-)
