      My last set were the Conti DW's, switched to Michelin PSS because of all the rave reviews. I honestly preferred the DW. The response of the PSS is sharper without a doubt but I think the DW was equal...

      Nothing wrong or improper about either choice. Advantages to the 235 are they will look a bit meatier and fill out the wheel arch a little better. Will also give a bit more rim protection and a...

      If you got 19k out of the P Zeros, you're lucky. I had a set and loved them but only for the first 5k, trashed them at around 8k. I also had a set of the DW, replaced with the PSS when I went to a...

      You can get custom spacers from Adaptec, both wheel centric and hub centric, for $170 for a set of four. Yes you will need to get longer lug bolts also.
    5. My summer setup is the same size wheel and tire....

      My summer setup is the same size wheel and tire. I'm lowered a comparable amount too. My final offsets are 30 front and 23 rear. I do have a good bit more negative camber in front than in back so all...

      I've never heard of that brand before either, which means they are probably questionable. And for the size, that is probably considerably smaller in diameter than the stock size and will look really...

      What's the width of said Audi wheels? This is relevant to a response. With the assumption they are between 7.5 and 8.5" in width, they should be fine. Maybe very flush but still okay. Why...

      Obviously you aren't choosing this set of wheels for the strip. You'll likely have a dedicated set of wheels/tires for that purpose. But I'll also guess you don't intend to change your ride height...

      Not to disagree with any of the info Aaron posted above but, keep in mind how low his ride height is. When you drop the height that much you automatically get more negative camber which makes the top...

      I've never seen a set of aftermarket OZ wheels (and I have owned a few) that use ball seat lug bolts. I'd double check that recommendation before spending time and money on something you might not be...

      No, that's not what I'm saying. All the suggested sizes you gave have a wide variance in diameter from front to back which will destroy his Haldex system in short order. And aside from that, a tire...

      Horrible advice! I won't give specifics since in general I wouldn't recommend a wild stagger on an awd car. But if you really want to do it, it's your car. You do have to keep the overall...

      Same here. I wasted my money on some high output led bulbs for my reverse lights last winter and got very little improvement. This has to be a better option but just can't get motivated without...

      Depends a lot on your suspension setup/if lowered much. 235/40 is a pretty common alternate size run by a lot of R32 owners. It really isn't that tight unless you have significant drop, or the wheel...

      1. Which R32 are you referring to?

      2. Check the classifieds as there are usually numerous choices of winter appropriate wheel sets in there at any given time, some with tires included.

      Lots of good opinions here but I just want to give some more details about my original response. I ran the DW in size 245/35/19 so, very little sidewall relatively speaking. I now run the PSS in size...

      I'd highly recommend the DW. The price is great for what you get. As you already mentioned, they are usually a couple pounds lighter than just about anything else which was very important to me. They...

      I've got wheels and tires with the same specs on my R32. There really are no clearance issues unless you are lowered up front more than you should be for track use. I think the TT has room for a bit...
