    235/55/17 are standard on the new A8 and 225/55/17 on the old one.

    You can put the wider one on but remember, if you like four wheel drift, it's more likely to come off the rim and bite you on yo' ass!

    If you want cheap and cheerful, I recommend Federal SS595 tyre.
    I've put some on my girlies Golf cabriolet and they're great, nice directional tread, not too soft but grippy and wear well.
    They also have an extra bit of rubber on the outside that protect your rims against kerb scuffing... well worth it.

    Take a look, I bought them from a shop on ebay, type in this item number in the search bit on ebay and it'll take you straight to them -
