    Would have thought so. ET20 is a massive offset. Most Audi/VW wheels have ET35-ET45 as standard.

    8,5"x18" ET20 won't fit your A6.

    The lowest offset on an A6 is 30, on an 8,5"x18" wheel, and that's on a V8-engined model, which have wider fenders as standard.

    ET20 will rub on even these models.

    I can do a trade with you for those wheels, I have a set of 2000 S8 wheels, these are 8,0"x18" ET48. At lease, you can space them out as far as you like, unlike if they stick out too far: you can't remove material from the wheels to make them fit.

    Do your wheels come with tyres?

    If yes, they can be transferred over.
