    On my standard A4 17's they are meant to have 225/45/17.

    Cheers

    Cheers 225 it'll be then

    I don't suppose anyone knows the part number for genuine RS4 alloys do they? the ones i've got don't have the PCD stamped on but there's a part number which looks like 8L0601 025AC , 7x17H2, ET38
    i don't want to order the tyres to find the wheels are from a TT or A3 so wont fit

    thanks

    they aren't genuine RS4 alloys as these were only available in 18" and they wouldn't fit an A4 anyway without wider wheelarches. I'd try one on for size before getting any rubber as most OEM Ronals were produced for the TT
