Hey guys. 2000 a4 2.8qm (non sport)


I might go with bilsteins and tien s techs. I picked up a set of 18" avus wheels with good tires. I'm on a budget so, I'd like to keep these tires.

245/45/18


Can I manage a drop on these tires? I already had to fit 10mm spacers in the rear just to clear my control arms.

What do you guys think

Those are huge tires. You'll probably run into issues.

STech springs are very soft, so you may have issues bottoming out too.

You should run 235/40/18 or 225/40/18.

Here is some 235/40's on an S4:

245/40 sounds too "agressive". I'd recommend 225's with the drop. I'm actually on Tein S Tech springs and I also run the B6S4 Avus wheels. 225/40/18 with 20mm spacers in the back. Here a picture for reference.
