    225/40/18 or 235/40/18 best on A4 S-line wheels

    Hi,

    Back in an Audi A4 after a bit of a break - this time a 2.0 FSI SE Avant as my daily runaround. Really pleased with it - full leather, one owner etc etc and drives nicely. I'd forgotten how much I like Audis!

    I picked up some genuine S-line 5 spokes which look great on the car, but the tyres are going to need replacing soon. The alloys have 235/40/18 tyres but these seem pretty wide for a car that isn't particularly powerful or sporty....was just wondering what peoples views are - best to stick with this size or should I consider 225/40/18?

    Thanks

    All A4's with 18" wheels left the factory with 235 width tyres, some people fit 225's to save money or 'stretch' the tyres a bit, but it's not what Audi intended.

    Also you got to think of the weight of the avant the 235 is an extra load tyre

    I'm in the same boat at the moment, going for 235/40 with XL ply should be sound for towing then too, 225/40 on 8j rims doesn't look as pot hole friendly

    Toyo proxes t1-r or uniroyal rainsport2
