    Default Wheel Sizing

    Hi All,

    A4 B7 2.0T Quattro S-Line

    has anyone has replaced 235/40/18 wheels/tyres with 255/35/19?

    if so, was it a straight swap?



    cheers....

    Why. Way too wide for the power. Lots of rolling resistance. With quattro you do not need super wide tyres. Back in the days when I had a BMW Alpina i had wider/lower profit tyres on the rear but with the Audi not necessary. Anyone who slides a quattro on the road is not well trained. I have the 235/35-19 on my B9 and I have tried very hard to break them loose. No go. If and when (more likely when) I up the power I will just improve the tyres. Nearly ALL cars today are better than the drivers. Come with me for an advanced driver course and you will not believe what even a **** box fwd car can do.

    Hi, not really for any performance gain, its more that when i bought my Audi, the worst thing about it and the only marks on it were the scuffed wheels, i have had quotes of 400 for a spray, and 1000 to do a off car total referb, and its time for tyres.

    i have been offered the said size wheels, with new tyres, and was going to give to then a go. perhaps not now!!!!!!!!

    thanks for your comment much appreciated..
