    225/35Z/R18 - Interesting tyre size, are they for your S4?, if so, should they not be 225/40 R18??

    Try

    http://www.xpediatyre.co.uk/. If they don't list what you're after give them a call.

    Always had good service and prices. You will need to find a local fitter that you can trust.

    Yes S4
    Maybe it is? (35)thats what is on it now ,this is the first time i have had to replace them, not standard wheels (BK split rims)

    Would the 35 to the 40 make a big difference on handling??

    I'm not sure of the proper tyre profile for your car mate, but the 35's would handle better than the 40s profile, not a major amount of difference, just thought that 225/40s would be the cheaper option, as they are a more popular choice, can anyone confirm?
