That's not enough information to be useful.
What is the width of the rims?
What is the offset of the rims?
What size tires are you planning to run?

Running a 225/35 up front with a 245/30 in back would be a closer match. You'll definitely need some spacers in the rear. A 245 on an 8" wide wheel is about 3/8 from the suspension upright so approximately 19mm of spacing will be required to put the inside edge of the tire in the same spot. You might get away with 15mm.

I believe you may rub in the front on the fenders when you hit a bump or pothole, at least if you are turning when it happens.

Rolling diameter will be different between front and back which is not preferable for quattro. Your car won't sit low at all but thats good for Worcester roads. I'll actually be there tomorrow.

Sport is plenty low. Race springs push the suspension past it's sweet spot and everything but fashion is compromised.
