Default Are these wheels too aggressive of a fitment?

For an S6:

20x9.0 +32
20x10.5 +28
5 x 112
66.6 Bore

W/
255/30/20
275/30/20

I'm thinking the rears will pop out too much, but I need a confirmation.

Thanks.

Check out Rob Cheng's BBS. they are 20x9 et 25. They are the absolute limit to how aggressive I would go.

I don't think a staggered set up makes much sense on such a front heavy AWD car. With the tire sizes you chose, your fronts are going to be smaller than stock. It probably wouldn't fill the wheel well. You'll want 255/35/20 front and 275/30/20 rear if you want a staggered setup with near matching diameters.

I think the rears are going to stick out & look weird, and they'll protrude almost an inch more than the fronts.

I hear you guys. I thought the same thing. It's a nice deal for some HRE's but the fitment and staggering issues are not worth it.

Appreciate it.

I agree that 10.5" ET28 would stick out way too much. That's 42mm outwards relative to stock compared to my 26mm (9.0" ET25).

Totally wrong on a number of fronts. 20x9 ET 32 would work, but the rear is WAY out. Would easily stick out past the fender. Also, you really don't want to use staggered fitments on quattro sedans. 255/30 is also too small a diameter, and 275 on a 10.5 wheel is really stretched.

Thanks Vijay, I thought so. It was a nice deal on HREs and a lot of wishful thinking, but not worth it.

No, an A6. I think he bought them from someone else, so I'm not sure what fitment HRE really intended them for.
