    Decided to treat myself to some new alloys and was looking at the RS4 alloys. Now my question is, i've seen some RS4 alloys which come with tyres fitted 225 / 40 / 18. I drive an Audi A3 2.0T Fsi Quattro and the current tyres are 225 / 35 / 17 - will the new tyres fit ok and not rub etc?

    Should your current tyres not be 225/45/17??
    You should be looking for an ET between 42-50ish

    Oops, just re-looked at my wheels and noticed they were 225/45/17 :L thanks for that.

    Might have to go ahead and treat myself to some new alloys then :D
