    Yeah... I thought they would have gone by now, especially since I only want £350 for them!

    I found this on Audizine...

    Quattro & FWD use the same suspension, b6/b7 are interchangeable, 1.8,2.0 and the v6 should work as well, v6 has different spring rates based on engine.

    s4 and a4 are interchangeable, only difference is the front spring rates, based on the s4's heavier engine.
    Looking at them, I really don't see why they wouldn't fit. The only difference is that the Quattro needs a bit more clearance.

    When my AirLift B6/B7 struts were fitted (they're designed to fit all models), they had to notch the rear strut a fraction to clear the Quattro, so the other way round should work with no problems.

    Sorry to hijack the thread!

    Im currently working a RAF Leuchars in Scotland and there is a black sline B7 Saloon in the town on them rims and its slammed. It looks like a drawing. (Fantastic!). It must scrub though as it looks tight in the arches front and rear.

    Well in mate.. there a nice colour.

    I appreciate they look awsome but I personally would avoid wheels were you have to stretch tyres on. I know were your coming from. But the wider wheel the limited space. Good luck with it all. Im sure it will look awesome when its done mate

    Stretched tyres can play havoc with handling, but having big rims with normal tyres doesn't mean you're gonna have rubbing issues. If you were serious about handling, then Eibach uprated anti-roll bars would stop the back end 'wallowing' about so with coilovers fitted, the ride would be firm, but you wouldn't get rubbing unless you slammed it (which in most cars wrecks the handling too).

    Awesome rims... I was looking for a set of these, but think they're a little out of my price range right now - must get myself a new job and get saving

    100% I wouldnt go for a 235's, I went for 225's to ensure I had no rubbing issues. Guess it depends how low u want. They look good & had no problems with the stretch.

    Good luck tho buddy!

    Are the rims Tyrell has; and the ones you've got the same width?

    And also 'daily' means different things to different people. The roads round here, mixed with my driving means stretched tyres wouldn't be suitable for me, although they do look awesome. I would never risk stretched rims on a track day though - I've seen the outcome of that!
