Re: quattro-digest V4 #905

I recently purchased an 87 5000TQ and have a few questions that the
archieve (SP?) doesn't answer...

1) What is the largest size tire I can run with stock suspension/wheels?
I have been told by more than one source that 205/60R15 is the max...  I
would like to at least go +1 to 215/50R16, but have been told that there
is the potential for rear suspension interfence problems...  
2) I have been told that there was a factory option for 7.0" wide wheels..
How would I know if my wheels are such?  Was this really an option?
3) Upon reassembling my right-rear hub assembly, and subsequently
re-installing the ABS wheel speed sensor, the Anti-Lock system will not
stay engaged.  It turns itself off after the car travels about .5 miles..  
  Bentley refers to replacing the Plastic tip on the sensor..  Any ideas?

Any help would be greatly appreciated!!!

P.S. I'm considering D40M2's for tires given the positive reviews from the

Thanks!!  Joe
