Hi there...

Looking for advice on replacement wheels and tires for our 2005 a6.

I would like painted wheels and good all-season tires.

Currently we have 17s.

Suggestion on wheel brand and size?

Can I go to 18s, 19s on this model?

Thanks.

Jeff

Jeff, you should follow the Placard on the vechicle stating the manufacture recommended tire for the best performance, if you upgrade to a larger diameter rim your options may change although do not go with a larger tire size on a smaller rim as you will run into handing issues.

That's a very sweeping statement and not necessarily a true one.

For example, many RS4 owners run 275/30 x 19 tyres on standard rims (the OE size is 255/35 x 19) and have commented that the handling is either unchanged or even slightly improved.
