    B5 S4 alloys are 17"...

    The specs of the wheels you've listed seem fine, although the width is also needed to be sure. 8" wide at ET45 may catch on the uprights for example, meaning youd need some spacers.

    225/40r18 or 235/40r18 is about right for a sensible 18" rim.

    if you go from 15's or 16's to 18's it'll feel like someone nicked the engine, I did it before and it killed the ooomph till i put super skinny cam-belt tyres on so the rolling radius was the same...

    225/40r18 has the same rolling radius as the original wheels.
