    I am looking into getting some steel wheels for the winter so I can fit snow tyres, we get it really bad where I live, so what size would I need to clear the front brakes on my a4? It's a 2003 2.5tdi fwd sport 163bhp. Cheers lads

    What about 16" B5 alloys, when I was looking around for a set of steel wheels, I found it cheaper to get a set of used alloys than what people were asking for steel wheels.
