eh, i'll make it work.
Oh, you'll be fine. The v710 doesn't have the same sizes available as the A6, anyway, so it is a different conversation. For the A6, you're comparing 225/40 to 225/45, so there is no width to be gained by going larger. For the v710, though, you're comparing 215/40 to 225/45, so you do gain width by going larger. Still, I would guess that the 215/40 is faster, due to gearing, but then again I have found that I was faster with 225/50 than 205/50 on my 16" wheels, so I don't really know. The only real way to find out is for you to try both.
