    I went with Richmond 3.73s in my A4 and thats what your going to want to do, 4.10s on an A4 is not worth it. With my Richmonds I have very little wine just between 55 and 60 mph is when they make a little noise. Your still going to break your tires loose if you have "reg street tires" I would suggest getting a stickyer tire but this is based off of the info you gave us, idk what kind of tire you have, but when I did my 3.73s I went with Nitto 555rs DRs and its an amazing tire to compensate for the mods you have and are going to have....

    really it depends on how good the install goes if they make a lot of noise, I had US gears in my chevelle and they were pretty nice

    I hear Motive can be pretty noisy that is why I went with Richmond, just look around and find a brand that stands out to you...
