Yes,  that is what I will end up doing.  The wheels will likely go back on the
Ur Quattro that they came off.  Car already had 225/45 VR 16 Pirelli and I need
only 2 tires.

I'm still trying to find a decent upgrade for the 200 20 tq avant.  The BBS's
are not in as nice of condition as I'd like and would prefer a little less
sidewall flex.
