It wouldn't hurt to give the "local guy" a chance to meet the tirerack prices (plus a reasonable allotment to cover shipping).
I was buying 18" OZ Titans for my A6 2.7T. Tirerack had a great price, but I went to a local shop (Auto Addictions in Allentown PA) and they matched the price and even mounted them on the car free. I did pay tax which I would have avoided mail order... but if the price is close I prefer to keep the money in my own town.
Local shops are starting to improve their price flexibility and customer service due to the pressure the online places are creating. It's worth giving them a try.

Have you looked at Tirerack.com? Their selection guide for the S4 seems
very good and ordering is convenient and easy, especially if you want
tires as well. They stock fully chromed wheels in a number of styles
as well as painted aluminum. Their selection guide will only show you
wheels that fit on your S4 properly - correct offset, bolt pattern and
diameter, etc. They will arrive at your door via UPS properly mounted
and balanced and with the correct bolts for the wheels. Just grab your
large torque wrench and bolt them on. I got my Dunlop Winter sports
this way and have no complaints whatsoever, except for the cheesy
digital tire gages I suckered for which really don't work very well at
all. I get much better results with a good analog tire gage. Good
luck. John M. Harrison Laramie, WY 2001.5 S4 Avant silver loaded
