Hello all,

I hate to start a volitile thread like this, but I need to tap the list

I have an opportunity to buy a full set of wheels and tires that are 18x8
with 42mm offset and currently have 225/40/18 tires mounted.  I want to put
these on my 95 S6A.

Will this offset and tire size work on my car?

I know many have said that an 18 is too big for these cars, but I'd love to
hear from anyone who may be running 18's, and get their thoughts.  Other
than the obvious additional weight and additional cost to buy new rubber,
what are the drawbacks of running 18's?  Are they just too big and look
goofy?  Unfortunately, I won't have the luxury of test fitting before I buy
which would answer all my questions.

The car has the Euro springs and Bilstein Sports, so it's about 1/2" lower
than stock.  I don't track the car, so that is not a concern.

Any thoughts appreciated.

95 S6A
