Default 19in OEM wheels on SQ5: fitment question

I'm not sure if this question has already been answered. I'm about to get these OEM 19-in wheels (standard on newer 3.0T) and I'm wondering if they will fit and clear the brake calipers on the SQ5.

Same wheels as in this post:
https://www.audiworld.com/forums/par...tires-2885031/

This is for my winter setup (235/55/19). According to my preliminary calculations, I should be OK.

Can someone confirm? Thanks.

I am running 19's on my SQ5 for winter, do you know what the offset is by chance? My set up is 19x8.5 et32, running a 255/50R19.

It depends on the offset, but if I were a betting man I would say yes. I run the 19" winter wheels out of the audi parts catalog and they fit just fine. It is tight between the spokes and the caliper, but it works.

I run the same wheels for the winter as the OP. You will need a 5mm spacer. I went with 10mm spacers since they have a factory lip profile for being hubcentric. No issues. Bought the spacers from ECS with bolts as well. You actually only need spacers in the front. The offset of the wheels is not so much of a issue, the spoke design puts the spokes within a 1mm of the caliper.

Thanks everyone for pitching in. I was hoping not to have to use spacers with these wheels, but that is a minor inconvenience
