The 35 / 30 thickness of the tyre is a proportion of the width. ie when you get wider, this number gets less in order to maintain the same physical thinkness.


You wont get 265's on an A4 (b5). 225's are the max recommended. Some manage to squeeze 235's but need fender rolling and expect some rubbing. Search on www.audiworld.com for such a topic.

exactly... the profile is the percentage of the width, ie. front profile = 0.35 * 235

19" is huge... wish my car could fit 16s properly...
