Running the Abt/Eibach/Bilstein setup on the avant with 225/45 tires has 
never resulted in excess wear for me, nor when I ran the 245/40's that I 
will go back to shortly (YMMV).  My alignment is a hair out on one side with 
the stock pieces; have the 2B plates sitting in the study, along with the 
HSRB, as yet uninstalled.  Wheels have been either 7.5" or 8" wide, all with 
+35 offset.  Don't really know why some of us have so much trouble and 
others catch a break.

Gotta love these cars.  They still retain a bit of the urq personality!
