    Dont know if you've seen it but there's a Misano RS4 on ebay going for £17.5k, it's got a few mods etc... but the bit that grabbed me was Staggered BBS LM wheels.

    Is it not detrimental to the 4wd having unequall rolling circumferances on the front to rear tyres?? the fronts are 235 and rears 265 i'm guessing the profiles are 35 and 30, meaning a differnce of around 18mm!!

    As you said, depends on the profile.

    0.8% difference, the difference in diameter is 5mm, which lets face it, would be no different to having new tyres on the rear and old ones on the front
