    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

    For 18" tires are 245/40/18. Look for original one. I have one set for sale.

    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.
