    New Wheels? RS6

    New Wheels? RS6

    Is it good to go for 235 tires? I asked this thing in a thread and people told me I should stick to 225/45/17. It shouldn't be different for 18", except that it is 225/40 instead of 225/45. No?

    Help, advise, tips, suggestions! Buying the right wheels!!!

    I know someone with 18" ET37 wheels and he says that it rubbing just a little bit only when he has 4/5 people in the car and at big bumps. So ET35, ET37 might seem to be on the edge.
