Changed my wheels over at the weekend
The car does look different on 17"s with those Hi - profile tyres

Just a couple of quick pointers

Pulling the plastic nut covers off is a pain and so easy to scratch the laquer - don't know how the stealer's mechanic's get em off but I dont think that take the care I did>

Remember to use your bolt alignment tool in the toolkit to line the wheel up and it also saves knocking the disc as you slide the wheel on

The winter tyres are all directional as well

here are a couple of photos of the changeover

Looks ok to me KC. At least you won't knacker your 20's and maybe a good time to give them some TLC before next year.

Be interesting to see if you also get less mud spray up the side of the car than with the 20's

How did you manage to get Audi Winter wheels and Tyres? I ordered mine in March and I was told only today they will not be available until December!
Should keep you out of trouble in most conditions and still looks sharp.

Hi Rowanlaw
ordered my set from Chelmsford Audi end of March and collected them on 21st April, before I took my car to France - I think your dealer is playing with you, try someone else, (Huntingdon Audi seem like the ones to try)or ring Audi customer support and see what they say

All the wheel nuts have plastic covers.
