Ahh, I did really mean to say 195/65.
BTW I have a very nice (near perfect) set of 15" audi oem rims (15x6"
et45) available for sale at a very reasonable price. The ad was in
the audifans marketplace, but they appear to no longer list ads older
than one month (what's with _that_?). These would be great for 195/65
snows (unless you have UFO brakes). You can see photos here:
Contact me off-list if interested.
