I’ve currently got 19” Le Mans alloys on my A6 Avant. The tyre sizes are 255/35/19. I feel that 20” Peelers would look better and fill the arches more but what type profile should I go for? Should I stick with 35 or go 30?

To keep the speedo correct you’ll be looking at a 255/30 tyre - on the limit of back breaking there!

would you not consider lowering springs instead?

I'm happy with the ride height and had 19's on my a4 and a5 but on the a6 they look too small. What do you mean by the limit of back breaking? would 35's rub the arches then?
