Hello, I recently bought a 2009 Audi A5 3.2 FSI QUATTRO. It has R17 wheels right now. I found on the internet, that R17 tires can either be 225/50 or 235/45. Which of these two dimensions is better for winter tires? Thank you in advance 馃檹馃徏

17 inch wheels? Are you sure? :) Thought the A5 came with 18s as standard? Especially on a V6, maybe, possibly on a 1.8?

I would go with the taller sidewall and thinner width, only because it is said that it is better having thinner tyres for snow driving. If it's just cold climates, then either. :)

See below for size comparisons

Like I said earlier, I didn't think the A5 came with 17 inch wheels. But then a larger side wall should be fitted to keep the same overall circumference.
