    Here's something to make you smile. /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/shocked.gif
    If you are lucky enough and RICH enough /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/woohoo.gif to have an RS6 and then you still have some change /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/ok.gif and you decide that you want to go skiing. /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/groovy.gif /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/groovy.gif
    You are in for a shock /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/confused.gif. The size of the wheels 19" and the fact that the tyres are VERY LOW PROFILE 245 x 40 you will have MASSIVE PROBLEMS. /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/cry.gif
    1st It is nearly impossible to get Snow Chains for that size!!
    2nd If you can get them you MUST have a Minimum of 10mm clearance between the upright (strut) and the tyre!!

    So what can you do.............you buy new wheels 7.5j x 18 H2 E20 670 AND new tyres 225 x 45 x R18 95V

    Oh that little lot would easily ruin the "apres ski" !! /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/mad.gif

    Oh and by the way this is no exageratiion there are several Quattro models that it would be hard to get Snow Chains for, as several areas in the alps require you by law to have snow chains.

    Thing is though, on the Continent in places where it snows quite bad its not uncommon to have a set of nasty big ass winter tyres, the first winter I was over here it took me a while to figure out why so many nice cars were driving round with ghetto wheels.....

    Guess that doesnt help though if your on your hols with your nice 19" alloys....
