narrow tires

Originally, Audi had that concern (hence, somewhere on the list, there
are full size spare trunk covers for sale, thought about it, then said to
myself, I like the flat trunk floor), but not anymore. Less of a problem
on an open diff car (quattro 1), than on the quattro 2 set-up (not saying
the "T" word), but for the amount of distance the donut's supposed to go,
at the speed it's supposed to be limited to, I'll accept Audi's
engineer's judgement.
