    Hoping someone can spread a little light on this.

    I have 19 inch alloys on an A4 line avant 2018.Summer tyres are rubbish at best on this car so for winter looking at options.

    1. Put 19 inch winter tyres on current rims -Price a little more than smaller but not much but on /off twice a year cost.

    2.Ebay and get a set of 17 inch with winter tyres.

    This bit is the confusing bit as there seems lots of offsets /sizes and models that may fit my model and year.

    Found a good set of 17 inch with 225/55/17 winter tyres.Code is 8T0-071-497-A-8Z but this appears to be an A5 fitment though seller says they were off of A6.

    Would these be ok or is there something I need to find speciffically ?

    All help appreciated
    Thanks

    The thing to check is what the offset - or ET value is on the rims you're looking for. Then input the data into this

    Wheel Offset Calculator or similar sites such as https://www.willtheyfit.com/, and take a look. That will tell you where the new wheels will end up.

    J and ET are linked to keep centre of tyre where it should be, so as J changes so will ET and you'll therfore see a whole range of fittments until they'll be too wide to turn in arch for steering. If they are the standard 19" your original wheels probably have 8.5J ET43 on them, and a VAG part number. If so then other standard sizes are:

    • 8J/ET47 for 17" and 18"
    • 7.5J/ET45 or 7J/ET46 for 16" and 17"


    It looks like the ones you found were used on the A4 Quattro which probably has different suspension geometery, and are 7.5J ET28. That's different to the figures above, so don't rush in is my suggestion.

    Tyre size also looks wrong. 225/55R16, 225/50R17 and 245/45R17 are the smaller rim ones, assuming yours are 255/35R19.
