    Hi all,Had a quick search but couldn't find a definitive answer.Would 235/45/17 audi TT wheels and tyres fit ok on my A3 8L?PCD is 5x100 so I know that's ok, I'm more concerned about rubbing etc etc...Thanks!

    234/45 is too big a profile so your speedo would be out.
    if you're lowered considerably it may rub, depends tho

    Speedo difference is so marginal you can 100% ignore it,

    standard tyre size is 205/55/16, total diameter 631.9mm, 235/45/17 has a total diameter of 643.3mm.

    The speed will in theory under read by just 1.8%, but seeing as all speedos over read by 5-10% anyway it'll actually make your speedo MORE accurate, not less :)

    I run 235/45/17 on mine and have no clearance issues at all.

    I ran 235/45/17 on my TT wheels. I had no issues and my car is down on coils. Dare say handling was a little better over 225's

    so in your experience would you say im better off leaving it at stock height or lowering it? if so how much should i lower it by so that it looks good but is minimum fuss.....

    well mine is so low you can just about put a finger between the tyre and the arch so fit them and play with the hight
