They probably look awesome but as you've found, there is a chance they'll rub, especially when carrying a heavy load and/or if lowered.

And this too has nothing to do with the OP's question, but I guess that's par for the course, right?
I have a 2013 audi tts and I kind of wanna go a bit wider on my back tires. I currently have the same set up (255/35zr19) but im wondering if I can go a bit wider on the back to give it a better stance. 🤔 Any help of feedback would be great.

Try asking in the TT-S sektion of the forum:

I don't have the answer but before changing to a staggered setup I would consider if and how it will affect the car (handling and the control of the Haldex system) and not only consider the looks.

I don't believe you can go to a staggered set up on an AWD car. You can usually never get the tire circumference to be the same. So if you want to go wider then you'll need to do all 4 .
