Wide wheels on A4Q

Has anyone researched how much room there is under an A4Q for wide
wheels/tires?  Keeping the stock offset seems wise as I'd hate to toss the
magical suspension geometry Audi worked so hard for.  I also don't have a
clue how an AWD vehicle reacts to a change in offset.  Any enlightenment is
welcome in that category.

I'm daydreaming of going +2 if I can fit some wide shoes under there.  I'm
sure somebody's already looked into this and will bring me crashing back
down to earth.

I see that the Tire Rack has the BBS RF on sale pretty cheap: 17x8's for $185
and 17x9.5 for $169(!).  A price like this is too good to be true, right?

Hmm... 9.5" wide wheels... lessee... you could mount... yikes!
