Yes, I have.
Ride quality improved going from S4tt wheels (27-28lbs.) to Oettinger RE
(22lbs.). Same size tires- 225/45R17. Not the exact same tires, though-
although I would submit that Yokohama AVS Sport have a stiffer sidewall
(mounted on the Oettingers) than the Potenza RE-040 (mounted on the S4tt
wheels). The car would crash over bumps a lot more with the S4 wheels,
rumble strips and stutter bumps would upset the car a lot more.
Ride quality was excellent on the A4 with stock sized 16x7 wheels and
205/55R16 tires, even with rather stiff H&R coilovers on the car.
I noticed this on two different Audis with the same wheels- '99.5 A4
1.8Tand '91 200q.
