should do.

225/40r18 would be better though.

Yeh in most cases it will be fine.

A lot depends on the tyre, some brands are chunkier and might catch on the uprights, but ET42 gives a bit more room anyway so i'd suggest you'll be fine.

If Im not mistaken, A4's go for +35 on aftermarket wheels and a flush result, so I believe +42 is safe enough even with bigger tyres.

Its the inside thats the problem when running high offsets, they catch on the upright.
