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??
