Speaking of Wheels . . (Fuchs).

Just making the clarification for the uninitiated that these wheels are OK to
use providing  at least 12 mm are spacers used on the front wheels.  I chose to
do so since I have 2 extra sets with good tires, rather than procuring
something elsewhere. I got the 15mm spacers.  200 20v Avant handled gracefully
with the setup.

Also, they fit fine on the Ur Quattro too, although I did not verify if rubbing
would occur under hard handling with the 205/60 tires that are a little taller
than the 225/45 16" on wheels I took off for refurbishing.



p.s. I will likely be selling this set of silver Fuchs with good tires, as I
have plenty extra now.
