    I've lowered my 2.8Q saloon by 35mm and it's on the standard 16" Audi wheels.

    I want some nicer hoops, but I've had 18's before on my old 2.8 Coupe and the tyres were expensive. Would 17's with a 45 profile tyre fit with the drop?

    Second Q is, is it even worth putting 17's on, or are 18's the way forward?

    PS... test drove an S5 today - Fookin' AWESOME! If I had £45k...

    18's are definately the way forward, 17's just look too smal especially when lowered.
    Tyres aren't expensive, £109 a corner fitted for Goodyear F1's, only probably £10 more than the equivalent 17's.

    17" tyres arent particularly cheap, especially if they are quite wide like the ones I bought at 235/45. 18's look as though they fit alot nicer in my opinion.

    18's are good. I dropped my 2.8Q 35mm with my 18" RS4 alloys without a problem. As for tyre prices i don't know about 17's. Budget 18's are around £80 -90
