    no they'll change the rolling radius = speedo will be out.

    225/45R17 are what Audi suggest, and they do it for a reason lol

    yeah but you can code the car to accomodate that. when you're buying 18s that makes sense, when you're trying to save a tiny amount by getting cheap tyres you're gonna end up paying more than if you just got the right size tyres in the first place.

    Agreed.... Replace like for like. They are a common size and around £100 each for Michelin in my experience....
