    hi m8 of mine is looking to get some new alloys for his A6 2.8Q 1999 he has the 16" 5 spoke competion allys at the mo he wants to goto 19" the multi spoke i call it "A8 type" however i feel that the RS6 5 spoke say 18" would suit better.

    what are your thoughts? and pics would by great
    also would he have to lower the car if he went for 18" or 19" rims ?

    cheers

    Personally, I like RS4s on an A6 - either 17s or 18s would definitely look better than the comps - although admittedly the RS6s are also nice... Choices, choices. Sorry, don't have any pics to hand at the moment.

    rs6 rims on the a6 for me every time,

    19's suit the car best. big but the car needs it! doesn't look over the top at all.

    here's a pic of my avant with 19's, they may be up for sale shortly. I want £675 for the 4 with 4 matching pirelli p zero tyres, done about 2000 miles only so loads of tread - tyres cost me £185 each. not no cheap **** you get with budget packages

    Here's mine with the 20's :)

    Then before on std height on 18" RS6's (**** reps! don't buy replica rims, u get what u pay for!)
    [​IMG]

    IMO the bigger the better, later C5 a6's were lowered 15mm as an upgrade to the handling, 18" rs4's give the car a nice look, but all are really common now and frankly there arn't many wheels which suit the A6 well so if in doubt, stick with oe design.

    If've got a set of Oettinger RE's 18" currently on my A4 (which is for sale) these wheel is a great fit for the A6 - had a set of RZ's (the Oettinger) 2 Piece on my previous A6 TDi Quattro - one of the things I liked with the Oettinger is that is correctly load rated for the A6.

    http://www.audi-sport.net/vb/showthread.php?t=34984

    These are in Anthracite and Silver - but they are also available in all silver, currently looking to buy an Allroad, might well go back to the Oettinger wheel although probably the single piece like those on the A4 as they are easier to clean
