Considering 21 inch alloys. Currently on 20 inch wheels with 255 35 20 tyres. Would. 255 30 20 work OK with 21 inch wheels.
The actual alloys I am considering are 21 inch s8 wheels

Wouldn't reccomend 21 inch due to the profile tyres you would need to run. Even 20" is borderline in terms of comfort.

You also need to consider additional weight (unsprung mass) and the road surfaces you are driving on (pot holes, loose chip).

If it's just for looks consider a nice 19 or 20 inch aftermarket in your budget, or some h&r oe sport springs with 10mm lowering.

Performance wise on an A5 255 is fine, perhaps if an S5 or RS5 you'd look at 275s

Imo 21" is just too big unless it's a SUV. Lambo Hurracan runs 19/20" setup so 20" is fine for an A5

Wise words Heylin I totally agree. PLUS the fact that 21" tyres would cost a small fortune....
