    Tyre size help please

    I have just bought some Audi S4 17" wheels for 1.8T Sport.

    can anyone tell the right tyre profiles for these wheels.
    Dont want it to look silly.


    Regards,

    You get a slightly bigger rolling radius with 235's, 225's will be closer to the original wheels.

    I've got 235s on my Stars but that's only because they came with them. Andy's right about the radius though, this is a handly little tool to find out what difference the profiles make.
