    Using 17" spare with 18" wheels??....

    Hello, I'm looking for a bit of advice....I need to remove a 'kerbed' 18" alloy so it can be refurbed...can I put a 17" wheel on as a spare until I get damaged wheel back??...the rolling diameter will be the same as the 17 has a higher profile. Also it's an A3 Quattro will it affect the drive train??

    Thanks in adavnce!
