    Anyone fitted 265/35/20s to an A5 (as opposed to the standard 265/30/20s)?

    I know it will affect the speedo slightly but would there be any drawbacks?

    I calculate the sidewall height difference to be 79.5mm (30s) vs 92.75mm (35s).

    255/35/20 would have a sidewall depth of 89.25mm so may be a happy medium.

    Some of that extra comfort may be lost though due to the tyre being slightly stretched on the wheel.

    Opinions?

    Say no to tire stretch, fit the right size tyre, why would you even contemplate changing it?
