    Tyre Size

    I am swapping my standard 17'' sport alloys from my 1.8T avant 2004 currently with 245/45/17 tyres with some OEM RS6 18'' 5 spoke.

    I am unsure what size to go for, I am going to be fitting some TEIN lowered springs when I swap the wheels over but I am unsure on what size tyres to go for on the new 18'''s

    I was thinking of going 235/40/18 all round but I have been offered a new pair of Yoko's 245 35 18 at a great price.

    My thoughts where to fit those to the front and get 245 40 18 for the rear to create a very slight rake to the front.

    What are your thoughts?

    TEIN Super Street Coilovers - BlueFlame Catback with 4'' Slashed/Rolled Tips
    Pipercross AirFilter- RS6 18'' OEM's - 225.35.15 Falken 452

    I personally would keep all 4 the same size especially if its Quattro but that's just me. Proper size is235/40/18
