Assuming these should also fit the 15s since they have 4/2 vs the 6/4 pot brakes?
What suspension are you on?
No, previous 4 pots are bulky, thats why people had to use spacers to fit rpf1 in 18x9.5 +38 specs.
Now with the new 6 pot, which are more narrow, no need spacers.

The new 6 pots are narrower? They sure don't seem like it to me - my 18's 6 pots only barely clear the factory BBSs from a 15-17 limited.

yea and the new 18+ sti wheels wont fit on older brembos without spacers since they were designed for new more narrow brakes

Well,

I used to own a 2005 E46 M3 competition package,
it came from factory with 19x9.5 wheels and 255s in the rear...

However I do think the ones in these pictures look a bit stretched....

I remember this car. It was one of the few cars to come with stretched tires from the factory. I looked at the pictures again. It’s definitely a stretched look and the wheel lip is exposed.

Oh, he's referring to the M3. I did read all the posts, but in my defense, I was doing about 6 different things when I made that last post.

oh yeah! The M3....

I have 255s sq on the STI....

The Audi RS3 has a factory option for wider tires up front to help fight understeer... I don't remember the sizes.

I’m considering the Rpf1s’ in this configuration, but maybe in either 265/35/18 or 255/40/18. Do you think I’ll run into problems in either of the two tire sizes? Also just out of curiosity, do you guys know if Rpf1s’ in a 17x9.5 +38mm configuration would fit under a ‘18+ without spacers or fender mods?

I ran 19x8.5 rpf-1 245-35 tires on my 04 S4. Hit a pothole and bent a wheel. Will never buy them again even though they are great looking wheels.
