    Ok, I knwo the 19's look nice but I am wanting a change, plus I think one of the standard alloys is buckled. So knowing what Audi's prices are like Im kinda thinking give the girl a christmas gift.. As im also needing a couple of tryes..

    so any ideas what will fit on the car? kinda moving towards the idea of a set of 20's, just want a nice set that will go on and not require any spacers

    love the hre ones. I think they are 2 or 3 piece and will cost a bomb.

    i saw something similar on ebay the other week, I went to hunt them down for you and they are no longer there..........

    found these though, something totally different but could work on an rs6 if you're brave enough to try. same 5/112 fitment, not sure on offset and you'd need the firm to supply with different tyres but if you like them it's worth an email to find out......... cheap!

    LMs are the nuts but it has to be forged HREs for the RS. No one else has them on an Audi on this side of the pond they are proper light and the finish is quality. Expensive but well worth it.

    [​IMG]<<<these would look perfect on your car but they are more performance based so they only go up to 19s [​IMG]

    They are 20's but the picture really does no favours, the car belongs to one of my old customers and it looks so much better in the flesh these wheels are great.

    I love them my wife has got 19 inch ABT on her car(bora) and I had the 18 inch version on my allround

    They are expensive but worth it!

    I have a set of 5 20" Slines with tyre pressure monitors fitted, Michelin PS2's with only 3K miles on them, plenty of tread left. The wheels have been refurbished once already and are a painted finish, not polished. One wheel is brand new never been used, currently used as the spare

    £1500 the lot.

    Nat not sure if they will fit, they are off a new A8 I suspect, as they are the only car that I have seen that came with 20 inch out of factory
    They are just 20 inch version of ours

    Those mahoosive american looking wheels look awesome but they must be sooo heavy. I've got a 9.5x19 for a merc sl500 at work and it weighs a tonne. But i spose an rs6 has plenty of power to allow the extra weight.
