The 1" increase in sidewall height is 2" total.

That's really pushing it in terms of fitment- that's way too tall.

225/50 is not the same as 225/60 and the 60 series is what the OP was
talking about.

I disagree with your assessment of 225s for winter use- that's too wide for
the weight of an A4.

225s on a heavy car like our V70R is okay- the car weighs over 3800lbs. On a
3200-3300 lb. car, 225s are too wide- the STi has serious traction issues in
snow w/ 225s. Heck, I found that 225s were too wide for my 3600lb. 200q.
