    Depends how much poke you have and is it on sports suspension.

    I'm running 245/40's at the moment on 8.5j and it does catch now and again on the rear.

    Speedo will be slower by aprox 5%, when doing 60 it'll be around 57 (speedo's usually out anyway though).

    Yeah i would think it would probably make the speedo more accurate as they read fast anyway compared to the more accurate GPS way of measuring

    marky - stock tyres had mine over-reading, that's how they design it so the car manufacturers don't get sued if you lose your license, 235/40/18's (on S4 rims) made my B6 read within 1% of the GPS at all times... 245/45's will be a significant under-read!

    Yeah i think there gonna be too big and catch .... not going to risk it these are the reason i was asking GENUINE 18" AUDI A4 S4 A6 A3 S3 A5 A8 A7 VW GOLF TOURAN T4 ALLOYS WHEELS + TYRES | eBay .... OEM wheels with Brandnew Goodyear Tyres i think there a bargain and i guess you could always sell the tyres and fit smaller but it's just too much hassle
