    Audi A6 2006 model wheels

    Hello. I have an Audi A6 2006 model. I have recently purchased alloys which are genuine Audi And are 9Jx20H2 ET60.
    Could you please advise if this will fit my Audi A6 2006 2.0tdi.
    And if they do, what is the tyre sizes. As I have heard a lot about tyres and correct sizes with gearbox etc. I'm getting a little confused.I look forward to your advise.

      Hi,Umar,I does not recommand you to take 20*9 into your car.Because the oem size of 2006 audi a6 is 16'',If you put 20inch,I am affraid the car wheel room is not enough.For the Gearbox,I suggest that you can use the tyre calculater.

      AUDI A6 TDI with 18 inch wheels

      I recently purchased an AUDI A6 TDI with SPORT PACKAGE The car was previously owned and had 17000 miles on the odometer. the A6 came with 18 inch wheels although the original manufacturers window sticker showed that the vehicle was originally supplied with 20 inch wheels
      I have noticed that the road holding on the car can be questionable and it tends to drift somewhat on occasion.
      An AUDI dealer advises me that 18 inch wheels are unsuitable for my car due to the sport suspension calibration on cars with the sport package
      Could it be considered unsafe to drive this A6 without reverting to the original size wheel and tire

        Hi,david mccabe,For your car,If the original wheel size is 20'',It means the wheel diameter suspension is higher than 18''.But,Is that must be to change back to 20'' rims?It also effected by tire size.You can image that,for 20'' rims,the tire height must be low to keep from scrubing.But for 18''wheels,if the tire height higher than 20'',The eventully height will be same.So,Can you show me your original and current wheels and tires size?May be i can help you.

          Thank you John. I purchased the 2014 a6 from an Audi dealer. it had been used by them as a loaner car since new. I was not aware when I bought the car that 18 inch wheels were not suitable with the Sport package as the larger tires came with a different profile tire to fit in with the enhanced suspension on the sport option, I suspect that someone switched the tires to upgrade their own vehicle. My question is regards to the safety issue as I do question the road holding as it is now and I do not believe that the dealer should have sold the car without returning the car to its original specs as shown in the original window sticker i.e. 20 inch wheels

            Hi,david mccabe,About the car dealer,I have to say,They are not responsiblity for the buyer.For the tire and rims questions,I think i can help you to drive in safety,Like my latest reply above,Please show me your current wheel and tire size.Wheel size like "18* **,Bolt pattern 5*112,Offset ***",Tire size like "***/**/R**".Please check them and reply me.

          Hi there!
          I am planning to buy a brand new 2016 Audi A6 (35 TFSI S tronic). My question is-
          Is it "Ok" to fit a 19" or 20" genuine Audi rim on them instead of the the 18" standard one.. Should I be worried about exhausting the car power on those big rims? Although they come optional in the Audi configuratoer as you surely know.

          Thank you so much! I don't want to spend almost $ 70K on something wrongly assembled.. :)

            Hi,Adel,yes,19"or 20"can fit for your car. About exhausting,It depend on your driving speed and others,Big wheels have not so much effect on it.

                Hi I have a 2010 3.0 TDI allroad that was purchased from a dealer with 19" 255 40 R19 100 Z tyres . I have been offered a set of Audi 19' wheels (19H2 ET32) to use an my base for snow tyres. When I checked with Audi they said I should be using an offset of ET34 to go with my chassis.
                I have checked the wheels on the car and they are ET32 so whats the differance?

                    I have 2007 Audi 4.2 Quattro SLine. Tyres are 245 40 ZR 18 97V. I want to use RTX wheel with 18X71/2 JJ ET 42 rims. Would it be possible to use them on my Audi. I think my current alloys are 18X 8 JJ ET 45. Does this minor difference with RIMS matter? Also do I need to know about CB as well?
                    Thanks

                      Hi,Mani,The offset is not a matter.The stock wheel CB for your car is 57.1mm,So if RTX wheel have same or bigger (put on some center ring)than it,it will be ok.And you also need to confirm whether the bolt pattern are same.They must be same

                        Thanks John, you were right. They wont fit because Nissan and Audi have different lug pattern. Can I still use the tyres on my current alloys. My alloy is 18inch.
                        Also if I have to choose between 245 40 ZR 18 97 V versus 245 40R 18 93 V Would it make any difference. The load index for car is suggested at 97V.
                        Thanks Mani
                        PS: This is second time I have used you guys and your advise is spot on always.

                          Hi John Can you advise if 245 40R 18 would fit on the wheels with Specs 18X8 Offset 45, Bolt 5X 112 and central bore size 70.1. Wheels are from Mercedes C63 AMG. I am planning to use them for Audi A6 4.2 Quattro S line 2007.

                            Hi, Mani! If you are sure that the AMG wheels have a 5x112 bolt pattern, you can use it, other differences are minor. 245/40/18 will work well with 18/8 ET45. The load index is not so principled, 93V can be used on cars up to 2500kg and at speeds up to 240km/h. Do not forget about the center ring 70.1 -> 57.1 and everything should go without problems.

                        Hi,Tom,the 18''wheels is ok,But the offset is little small,You can use some spacers to adjust it.
