My son ran 225/50's on speedlines on his 90q - don't know if that
translates to the 80q since it has a 1 piece suspension setup..

Yes, I see your point. I could put a meter wide tyre on the audi but it
would be a museum piece. No I wish to drive the 80Q. So that means the
the tyre needs to clear the suspension and brakes. So I asked again,
What is the widest tyre you can fit on a 1990 80Q with Speedline rims,
size =15"and still run the car without hitting any part of the car. And
the same question on 14" rims.  For example I own a 2006 VW Jetta  and
the widest tyres that VW suggest is 235. Some people have been anble to
fit 245 but it rubs a little bit. I thought it was a simple question but
I guess it was a bit more involved. Thank you for any good answer to my
