The D3 S8 sizes on 9" 20's are fairly standard, he should join the A8parts forum where all such info is already up there.

Mine's a D2 with 8.5"x20" so don't know offhand.

I could tell you what size I'm running but suspect it won't be relevant as I'm running D3's on a b5 rs4    so have lower profile than normally on the a8/s8

Just had a quick peek there and found this:

275/35/20 or I think the S8 was fitted with 265/35/20. Either will fit a 9" rim

And:

I opted for 275/35's. Higher profile for more comfort and 5mm less arch gap!

Has he looked at the tyre pressure sticker inside the fuel flap, that ought to tell him?
