    Can people help please... I am finding a lot of conflicting information.

    I have bought an S6 recently, 2000 reg but it has black lambo replica wheels which are not to my taste. I would like some standard S6 or RS6 wheels but do not know what size to get.

    I think I need 18 255 35 tyres so what is the best wheel width and offset?

    There are a lot of 8J wheels around but I cant help thinking the standard size is wider??

    Any help apreciated.
    Thanks.

    According to Etka to correct wheels size, offset for your car is 8j x18H2 ET 43 5/112

    on the RS6 the sizes and off set is all wrong for your car. They use ET's on 18" 20 & 30. On 19"'s they use ET 35.


    i have a A6 sport quattro, i managed to get some 18" sline wheels with an ET of 43 to fit nicely. i had to 255x40's to clear the upper wishbones. this also keeps the rolling radius close to the original spec.
    you can safely +/- 3 mm on the offset.
