More tire stuff...

I'll just give my experience, and not speculate as to what causes it. I put
the  wheels from my 94 S4, 225/50x16's on my 200 and experienced the same
problem. The offset is different by 5mm, the 200 is et35, the S4 et40. Using
the stock 15" wheels on the 200 does not cause this effect. BTW, there about
as many theories/explanations about this tramlining problem as there are
people on these lists, and I'm sure there are many factors from wheel size,
tire size, tire type, alignment,etc..
