I'm sure a few of you have done this so hoping to draw on some experience.
Currently I've got 17"s on the car with 225/50 tyres. If I were to go up to 18"s does this mean that I'd just need to drop down to 225/45's to keep the same ratio?
And to those who are wearing 45's, how's the ride in comparison, probably a bit harder/bumpier at a guess but is it a lot? Is it bearable?
Do they make the car noisier on the motorway?
Last one, is it worth it?
Yes you will have to go down on the profile
I got 16s on my A6 and is very comfy on the motorway but I got 18s on my A4 and it is a lot harder and louder on the motorway.
For long trips i take the A6.
I had 17s as standard on the A4 and went to 18s and did notice a little difference.
Is it worth it? too me Yes
A4 1.8T Quattro sport
A6 2.4 Avant SE
try this, follow instructions cant go wrong.
That's the thing, I love driving on the motorway after previously using a Saab 93 for motorway journeys, it's such a breeze and effortless in the A6, I don't want anything to affect the ride.
