A6 Avant wheel compatibility?

Hi.

I'm planning on buying these wheels and need to know if a 19x9.5j et42 will fit on the rear with no rubbing http://www.autoalloys.com/19x95-oems-111-5x112-et45-smf?ss=1&r=1015&f=1013 I like deep concave wheels so was hoping to go with a staggered set, but will *make do* with 8.5j front and rear if 9.5's don't fit. Auto Alloys compatibility chart says no, but thought I'd ask in case any of you happen to be running this setup. Also could I run a 255/35/19 tyre on these rims? They suggest 235.

Thanks,

Andy.

It depends on if you have lowered your car. I'm following a topic on motortalk.de were they are putting 265/30/20 on a 9,5 et36. That's the original rs6 size. Some have problems others don't. The non rs6 size is 9j et38 also with 20".

So I doubt that your 9,5j is going to be a problem.

As for the suggested 235. There way of. Audi advices 255 with 8,5j.

Here's a picture taken from an Audi brochure. It's in Dutch but the wheel and rim sizes are there.

Ive been looking into this for ages as im looking at New Bola ZZR wheels on my C6 S6.

Im currently running 9J 19" ET52 with 235/35/19
And the Bolas are 9.5J 19" ET45 which recommend 245...255/35/19.

I have emailed demon tweeks awaiting an answer with compatibility for ET45 against the front callipers as that's going to be my personal issue as mine isn't lowered and wont have to worry about clearance in the arches.

For your query, 9.5J with 235/35 tyres will stretch the tyres to hell so that will help with your clearance if that's your issue?

I really don't like stretched tyres, I just don't get the appeal of being able to fit an iPhone between the rim lip and tyre, it looks rubbish! If I go 9.5j I'll want at least 265's, if they fit. I be leave the track is narrower on the C6 S6 to accommodate wider wheels and tyres?

So you think they would fit on mine?
