    Welcome! Best to wait and see when they're on and decide what you think is needed!

    245's will probably rub against your arch linings on full lock. Also they will definetely hit your arches if you car is lowered, front and back...

    Why not go for 225/40/18 tyres, they will be fine on your A4, and you shouldn't have any issues with arch clearance then.
