I aquired one wheel with a 235 40 18 tire, and it just barely misses the top suspension knuckle. I am wondering if a 225 40 18 tire would give me enough clearance. I don't see any B5 A4's with the 18's, so if anyone else has attempted this let me know if it will work before I go buying three more wheels. Thanks!

I'm not sure the offset on those wheels but I run 225 on 18's with no issue. I'm sure someone with more knowledge will chim in and sort you out.

you can totally run a 235, just make sure your offset is correct.

I had the wheel with the 235 tire on the front, and I had just enough space to fit a shoe lace between the tire and the knuckle. the tire is a continental contisport2. Who knows if that makes a difference. Thank you for the imput!

Yeah I ran a set of oem b6 s4 wheels with pirelli p6's 235/40/18. I had some sight rub on the rear drivers side so I just popped on a set of h&r 5mm spacers. Didn't have any problems after and I loved them.

Haha Ben that was actually on my old car before it was totaled by an asshole pulling out in front of me! Thats why I bought you're wheel because one got ruined in the accident! So now I'm in the process of refinishing them and getting on my new car.

I had b6 s4 wheels on my car for a while. my first set of tires were continentals in a 235/40/18. I am lowered on h&r race springs with bilstiens and they didnt rub at all. Those wheels are so heavy i switched to a 17.

It is a small world. Thanks for the posts! I can't wait to get those on my car and post pics. I just got the S4 bumper painted and euro plate made.
