    Hi there, i am running my audi on 17" ambition i think 7,5x17" and need new tyres. i have it slightly lowered by 60mm but no spacers yet. no i want to fit smaller tyres than the 225 and maybe a little bit less "hight". But i dont know what i can put on them. I also would like to know what how much i could set them out with spacers without needing to change anything on the arch. or should I check this again when new tyres are on?

    you will need to add the wheel offset if you want a qualified answer. it should be stamped as ET35 or similar.

    if you loose tyre height you will mess up the rolling radius of the wheels which will then not display the correct speed on the speedo.
    on the 17s it should be a 225/45/17 tyre but you will be able to get away with a 215/45/17, or just go to an 18 which would then be a 225/40/18 tyre

    so the 215th are the smallest i can get without messing up the rolling radius. unfortunately i dont have money for new 18" :) ... just new colour and new tyres
