Default New member... need help with wheels

I got my first Audi a few months back. 2013 A6 2.0t premium plus Moonlight Blue and Nougat. Coming from a black on black escalade I knew I did not want a big engine or anything with black. After 6 months of the stock 18s, I decided its time for some new shoes.

I have narrowed it down to 3 choices...

Hard choice to make. I like all three.

My wife does not like the 5 rotor design. I liked the "old school" mag wheel look. I would get a set for snow tire use so I can enjoy the look some of the time.

I seriously considered the A7 double spoke design. Very nice and a classy look.

At first I didn't like the A6 20" flower wheels but they grew on me and it's the one I would choose today.

My vote is for the ti-wheel. If there was a 20" rep that fit the A6 3.0t I'd be all over them.

My money is on the 5 arm rotor 20x9, although stay away from 39-45 mm offset; that concave look is much more sporty looking. The others im sure would be a bitch to keep clean with those narrow spokes. This is what i was looking at for my 2013 A6 which is still on the same stock 18s as yours: http://www.ebay.com/itm/20-RS5-facto...-/111244743345

"beauty is in....." . I would consider the 20" diameter and your road conditions more than anything. The off-set is no problem if you like the look-- there are many ways to compensate for the off-set.

I bought 17" Replika rims for my 2013 A6 2.0T to be used with winter tires (Hakka R2).

I believe that they are manufactured in Quebec (Canada). Retail shops definitely sell them cheaper than list.

Go with what you like, not others

I personally only like the first option and think the other two are butt ugly. But others may like them as everyone has different tastes. So go with your gut on what YOU like
