I just purchased a 2006 Audi A6 4.2 and have begun my mod bug, its getting a black roof as we speak [:D]. I previously owned a 2004 S4 which was completely modified. I picked out a set of wheels online here and the exact specs are 20x8.5 ET38 with 245/30 Falkens. I believe that wheel should fit quite nicely from the small amount of information I was able to grab online here. I am installing coilovers onto the car and definitely want a nice drop. Would these specs be ideal for what I want.

Thanks Nick

That width/offset should fit quite nicely. I have 20x9 +41 and it's perfectly flush, you could probably get away w/ a 3mm spacer if you wanted to at the very most.

Those will fit. I have h&r springs with 21x8.5 with a 255/30/21 tired. I had to adjust the camber in the rear to -1.54 cuz it was rubbing. But now no issues and its perfectly flush. One of my friends actually fit a 275 tire in the rear of his c6

ok great.... I also just spotted another set of rims with a 35 offset. But according to my offset calculator that would have the same exact outer position of a 20x9 +41. Obviously the 38 offset gives me a little more room to go lower but i would imagine the 35 offset would be more then sufficient
