Even better, as long as it fits. I wasn't sure if 235's would fit the staggered front wheels, or even how that would look being 20mm thinner. But if it fits then that would be the route I'd go.

You mean 10mm wider rims not tyres?

I'm running 245/35/19 on all four rims on OEM RS3 Rotors on my S3. At the moment I'm running the wider (8.5) rims at the rear. The OEM RS3 Rotor rims are ET53 (8.5) and ET49 (8.0). Does anyone know if I rotated the wheels front/rear if this would affect the wheel alignment? I'm guessing it would.

Apologies to the OP. Just realised this is somewhat off topic.

Default Aftermarket Wheels - Staggered or Nonstaggered

Hello all, great thread. I have a 2018 RS3 with ceramic breaks. I just switched to winter tires and wanted an extra set of wheels to make my life changing them a lot easier. Looks like the options for staggered (19" x 8.5 in front and 19" x 8.0 in rear) are very limited. So I wanted to go 19" x 8.5 all the way around. If anyone has any additional feedback on this type of setup I would really appreciate hearing from you. Thanks!

It is done all the time. You can mount 235/35/19 tires on either 8" or 8 1/2" rims, so just buy four 8 1/2" rims and mount 235/35 tires all around, or 255/30 on front and 235/35 on rears. For winter tires, most choose 235/35 for better snow traction.
