Hey,
I have 2002 1.8T B5.5 and could get some really nice wheels with tires for a good price. I was just wondering if they are the right size.
They are Audi rims and the stats are:

Rims are 7.5Jx17 ET42
Tires are Good Year LS2 245-45-17

My car is on the stock suspension with 15" steelies right now and I was wondering if I will run into any problems? The Tire FAQ says that 225-45-17 is recommend for 17x7.5.

Will this impact my speedometer reading at all?

Thanks

Anything other than that, I have to take into consideration? 245 over 225 means that there is more rubber and the circumference of the Tire overall is bigger, right?
