    Hello,

    B8 Audi A4 Avant
    3.0 TDi Quattro
    S-Line

    245/40 R18 Tyres


    Has anyone experience with fitting snow chains before, and do you know if I would have the appropriate clearance required?

    Thanks in advance

    Something slim like these might fit if you can find an equivalent in the right size. http://www.halfords.com/wcsstore/libraries/document/michelin_guide.pdf

    Ask a specialist like Snowchain Europroducts who may suggest some chains with small links. My RS2 had RUD chains specified because of the clearance from memory (20ish years ago).

    The genuine Audi winter wheels use a narrow wheel and tyre combo to give chain clearance. From memory its a 7.5" wheel width as opposed to a normal 8" wheel for 18" diameter.
