    You shouldn't have any problems. I've seen some Merc alloys on an S4 and they looked excellent.

    235/35 is used by quite a few people too.

    it was just that a few folk wondered if i would get uneven wear with the shear size of them, i did wonder that before i did buy tyres but went aheard anyway. they do look nice on the A4

    my wheels came off a Merc, they still had merc centre badges on them when i got them, but mine are only little 17" with 235/45/17 et45 but no issues with the stud fitting ect.

    I think it might be a tad larger, il do the old "follow your mate at 70" test and see what the difference is

    And there's no point following your mate at 70... his speedo might be further out than yours!!

    Borrow a satnav to see the GPS calculated speed.

    Dont forget the spigot rings....

    You will need to reduce the center bore from 66mm to 57.1mm.
