      They may, never seen such narrow Fuchs'es before. Snow specific ones on Gr 4 Quattro, and seems winter wheel on typ 44 portal...
      Getting two more alike them may be hard as nails.

      So, narrow tires 185/60 R15 or so would be correct fitment for the Fuchs, if I were to replace the spare wheel to something a little sexier.

      Speaking of sexier, I just did a DIY to correct a big annoyance. Looking at the silver painted Polk Audios wasn't doing it for me.
      Finding the all-black grilles of the sister product hasn't been found during a while, so I did it this way: marine grilles, matted down, and painted in some "bumper paint". Not 100%, but 85% being 65% more than the silver ones...




      Also noticed a small damage in the rear seat cuchion, that should be fixed. Think it can be, it's a scratch beyond the paint or so that should be possible to "patch up".

      185/60 would be too small (short). Overall diameter would be smaller by about 1" and your speedometer out by almost 4%
      Better choice would be 185/65 even though still too small. 195/65 would be ideal.

      How do you make that?? From 215/50R15, I'd say the 195/55 typical Golf VR6 size is as close as it gets. 195 on 6" sounds too chunky as a spare?

      Either way, got very, very lucky. Sat at partens in law this new years, and passed through a local ad page and found a set of Audi V8 BBS wheels for sale. So these made me excited to (a) test fit 16" on urquattro for clearances & (b) do for an old Audi 100 late generation (after test fit, with 205/55 most likely). What was very good about them, was I was correct in hoping they were the BBS RG043 forged wheels, making them properly lightweight and will fit the 2.3E engine just fine.

      The 16x8 BBS was a dealer option for the Ur-quattro in Votex catalog.

      Hope this helps.

      Dealer option was BBS RS for the urquattro, no? Not BBS RG?

      The hoarding continues. As can be read on the news section, Milltek has launched a set of exhaust kits under the Milltek Classic selection. And yes, there's something for the urquattro there!
      So I have just been a bit back and forth on getting the Milltek (2.5", lifetime warranty, nice 304 stainless, 2x90mm tips) versus BN pipes (2.75", has approval certificate, stainless, 2x76mm tips).

      Looking at the press release pictures, I wasn't thrilled about the choice of 90mm "GT" tips for these cars. Checking the mk1 and mk2 Golfs, they kept more according to original design/dimension.
      After talks with the local seller of Milltek, I'm going to give the kit a go, and they will source me a set of "Jet 76.2mm" tips in addition for a decent price for me to experiment with. I believe this would be closer looking to the 3" kit for S2 Avant & RS2 they are selling out these days.
