What suspension kit do you have? If your car is lowered it could make it quite a harsh ride dropping to a 45 or 40 profile tyre. I have RS4 18's on my Passat with 45 profile rubber on a KONI coilover kit, the ride is hard?

I would really recommend Goodyear Eagle F1 GSD3's. They are a pretty good price, but give excellent grip, both in the dry & wet. I've used them in 225/45/17 size and can't rate them highly enough.

I've also used Toyo proxies in the same size, and although the dry grip is supremem, i thought they were not so good in the wet, and they wear way too fast.

These are the F1 GSD3's on my OEM 17" Santa Monica alloys on my Bora:
