    im thinking out loud here. at present i have S4 17" alloys. and would like a change

    Ideally i would like to keep the 45 profile as i feel i dont want for the ride quality to suffer, i want to try and keep the OEM look any ideas and pictures if you have any

    cheers guys

    There really arent that many choices in 17" tbh.

    Boleros are a bit different, but still OEM.

    LOL however i have changed to stiffer suspension and springs, so quite a stiffer ride already so i dont think 18" is an option

    Suck up the extra inch and go for some B6 S4 rims.

    TBH mate, I've lowered mine on cheapy coilovers, and have 225/35/19's. I actually don't think the ride is that bad, neither do other people who have been in it. It is a whole lot comfier than my girlfriends new Mini. I would saw on a par with my brothers e46 325ci sport.
