[A4] RE: Tire Size question

I think the 225 was more for the weight of the car, rather than the power of
the engine.  The A4 quattro is a little porky compared to some others in
it's class, so it probably needs the added tire to handle all that weight
around the corners.

BTW, not sure if it matters, but the car has the APR chip, it how has about
205hp/245lbft, so it's not so underpowered anymore (lots of fun in the
Winter though).  :-)

Thanks for the opinion.

I wouldn't be too concerned about that change in size. Be better in the
wet, 225 sounds too big imo anyway for such a low powered car..... my
90q cant brake traction on 205 rubber, youll have no worries on 215....
