  Yes and no- 255/40R17 is an OEM fitment on 17x8 Audi wheels,
but it is not a recommended fitment by tire manufacturers.

No problems as of yet- knock on wood.
I called Dunlop when I got my SP Sport 9000s, and they said it was an
acceptable fitment.  Other tires/manufacturers may vary.  My guess is the
narrow rim gives a bit softer ride.
