    I own an A3 sportrtback 2.0T Quatro. I have changer my rims, and fitted those of an S3 with the standard 225/40/R18 dimensions for the tyres, But im not sure about the air pressure. Does anybody know how musch should I inflate them?

    Im curently using 38psi front and 36psi rear but mines an s3, i suppose if yours is a quattro then the weights should be similair so you could try those pressures.

    Wow that sounds a lot to me!!! Maybe cause its an S3.
    I got a 1,4T with 225x45 R17 and because here in Greece its extra hot i have 30 front and 27 rear!
    I tried once to use 35/30 but the car was awfully bumpy!
