Hi Richard,
Hope you've received the BernieBrace products by now.

Earlier this week I put a set of 17 x 8 ASA IS6 wheels (35mm offset)
w/235/40-17 Kuhmo tires on for about $1200 from TireRack.  Perfect fit,
a modestly understated, but elegant look and zero clearance problems.

As Chris has mentioned before, the 35mm is the key for good Type 44 Audi
fitment, even on non-flared fenders where I've put 17 x 7 wheels
w/205/50 tires.  Again zero clearance problems.

The larger diameter provides better steering w/o any perceptible comfort

Both cars are close to stock spring heights.
