I'm got this second hand from my 2000's previous owner, but he told me that
he got the 16" snows because that is what Audi recommended.  He also said
that when he told this to the Tire Rack, they agreed.  However, when I
briefly looked at the TR website, I only saw 17's listed for the S4.  I'm
not sure what to make of it, but I've got the 16" Blizzaks in the garage,
ready to go on at the first forcast of snow.
