    After taking several measurements, I have concluded that 245/40/17 tires mounted on 17X8 wheels will fit an Audi TT Quattro. There is a clearance of 20mm from the inside of the front tire to the strut with wheels at full lock; therefore going from 225mm(stock) to 245mm should work because only 10mm of the 20mm added will extend inward towards the strut. The rear appears to have generous clearance.
    I am fairly confident in my measurements, but I would still like to know if anyone has had real world success with this extra width.
