Default New rims, will they fit???

So i've come across a website that makes OEM rims, i found some 18x8's that i like... Will they fit on my 2006 b7 a4 2.0t quattro....?

http://www.finishlinewheels.com/spec...lloy+18x8+Rim/

And if they do, what tires would you recommend i wrap those bad boys in?

Also if they do fit, my stock rims/tires will be for sale, but they have SEVERE curb rash and will be sold for a very very very minimal amount...

Well after a little bit of google'ing i found that 245/40-18 will work best on a daily driver AWD car.
If anyone has any advice/suggestions otherwise, please please let me know asap because i will be placing my order shortly and i hope to not spend 1500$~ in vein.....

They may rub. Tire rack likes the 18 x 8 but recommends 235-40 X 18 for your car. This set-up will beg for curb rash.

gahh, thanks for the advice, it seems like every set up i have begs for curb rash =/

But is there really that much of a difference in size between the 235's and the 245's??

Go with the 235's. IMO more stretch looks better
