    Hi,Sam,No,the stock tire size is 215/55ZR16 ,So 265/50/19 is not compatible.

    I'm looking to upgrade the width of my 20" wheel rim package, as I will he going with a concave wheel. Just wondering what width would give me a flush mount in front and rear.. maybe even what offset would you recommend.  Thanks

    Hi,Devaron James,The stock 20'' width is 8.5J,The biggest width you can try is 10.5J,For offset you can try 35mm-45mm

    I have an Audi A6 S-Line 2 litreTDI first registered October 2009, and I need to replace a wheel/rim. The wheel size data is as follows (as cast on the inside of the wheel) 4F0 601 025 DC. 8.0J X 18H2 ET43. Tyres fitted are 245/40R18 97Y. When looking at the comparison tables 2008,2009 and 2010 these size wheels/ rims are not listed for the said model, it’s either the 2.7d or 3.2 petrol and above that are listed with these ? I don’t mind as I have the necessary data I need to replace, my query and question is, how common is it that wheels fitted from new could be of this type of spec? We have ‘owned’ the car from new, first as company lease, and then bought at 18mths old. Any clarification would be appreciated, cheers

    Hi,Ian,The 18'' wheel data in website and your list is compatible.So I think it have much chances that you can find new wheels in your list,but if you do not find it easily,You can use the 18'' rims size of  website.

    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.. :)

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?

                      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.

                            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, MS! Smaller offset means that the wheel will come out of the wheel arch to 10mm. This can add dirt on the sides of your car, but it shouldn't create any other problems. 245/40/R18 is a bit small (should be 245/45/R18), ground clearance is reduced by 12mm, but I think it's not a problem too.

                                        Hi,Edgar,Yes,The wheel size effect the speed monitor.Normally,if change to bigger wheel size with tires,the whole diameter will increase than before.The car speed will faster than speed monitor number.It will cause the fuel consupmation increase than normal.
