    After some help.
    I want to run staggered size wheel widths front to rear. I understand that the rolling circumference has to be similar. Does anyone know the exact tolerance so I donít blow up the diff.

    I want to run this set up
    245/40/20 front
    275/35/20 rear

    Rolling circumference
    2211.7 mm front
    2200.7 mm rear

    Difference
    0.498%

    Is this possible? Or could someone point me in the direction of a specialist who could help.
    Cheers

    I'm sure it won't make a difference but not sure why you would want to. I would check with Audi and also your insurance as you are making modifications which could affect your policy and any warranty.
