    a4 avant wheel help

    hi again all right where to begin. i have an a4 avant b6 with b7 sline front end. after lots of time decideing what wheels to change to i have finally took the gamble thing is it turned out to be a bad choice ive changed my standard alloys for a set of 17 inch sports similar to rs6 wheels as i realy liked them. thing is once car back on floor stood back and still not happy for some reason they still look to small so im back at square one what wheels do i put on that lok good and will fill those mahooosive arches i dont think it helps being the avant as its dead long. i dont want to go to big as then tyres end up being daft money. so any ideas and or pics wouldbe greatly appriviated many thanks again.
    also now have originals and the sports for sale both sets of 5 if any1 intrested??

    You'll want 40 profile tyres, 235/40 x 18 will match your existing wheel's rolling radius.

    Have a look at this thread.. Post pics of your motors and see what you like.

    The RS6 alloys in 18's are a good choice and OEM so they get my vote

    35 series tyres will give you a nice rubber band look and there nowhere near as hard a ride as people make out.

    if the wheels look lost in the arch now, it'll look a whole lot worse going with a 35 profile. best to stick with a 40 on the a4 as theyre big cars.

    as for your car/wheels not being as you'd expected, have you lowered it? that'll make a hell of a difference.

    have a look at my thread, you can see the difference between standard sport suspension on 18" wheels against same wheels with coilovers fitted (maybe a bit too low for some?)

    hope that helps, carl
