    Ive seen a set of these on an A4 before and look ok image wise but look small as they're only 17". You get used to seeing the 18" avus but see these and they look very Different IMO.
    Theres a set of 8 18" avus on ebay at the min....HERE Make him an offer, they have been re-ad a few times!!

    I know on the 8P you can tell the car it has certain size wheels on, so have to check if it shows this for the abs controller on your car.

    As long as you keep the exterior rolling radius of the same it won't effect it no. I swapped my 215/55 x 16's for 235/40 x 18's and they were with 1% I think.

    Use a TYRE SIZE CALCULATOR.

    No, they didn't make a difference to either that or ride comfort, but they did sharpen up the handling a bit.
