Winter Wheel and Tyres

Depends on your engine/drivetrain.

Suitable alternate tyre sizes for your own model are listed on the pressure chart on the drivers door jam.

i have bought 17" A4 B8 SE wheels with 225/50/17 Dunlop Wintersport 4D tyres for a 2015 A4 2.0TDI S-line Black Edition.

255/35/19 v 225/50/17, wheels are the same as below. They're actually not the worst looking!

I have a B8.5 S-Line 2.0 Tdi

I run a set of SE wheels 7.5J x 17; ET 45 fitted with 225/50 R17 98V XL M+S CONTINENTAL WINTER CONTACT TS 830 P

The grip during braking is as impressive as traction.

I normally change in November/December then back again in March/April depending on weather

I picked up some steels+winter tyres in germany last month to fit my B8 A4 3.0TDI Quattro.

They have +6mm on them and I paid €100 for the lot. Absolute bargain.

Should be unstoppable if the white stuff hits :D the problem will be everyone else still on summer tyres, getting stuck/driving at walking pace so they dont end up in a hedge.

Having driven on winter tyres before, i'm excited to try them on the A4. The grip is really reasuring in bad weather and quattro will mean i can have some fun too :)

Interesting test seeing they included a summer tyre and an all season. Good to see the nokian tyre does well. Probably the cheapest out of those tested but third overall. There is a good difference between summer and winter tyres in the dry,only to be expected but to me shows that you can't just fit one tyre all year round if you want the best in grip

i've no idea how you all store these things, storing off my 255s would mean i wouldn't be able to get the car in the garage!

Ah yes had the same problem at my old house, ended up extending one of my sheds to store them. Luckily new house has a double garage

The above are et 41 only 2mm difference with a 57mm bore so won't fit a B8, do you want wheels for a B8 as you can get them from tyreleader as well.
If you have a look you could get a set of alloys for a similar price to steel wheels.

ok I checked on this website which wheels they got and I found this one
