    Finally got my set up done.

    VMR V701 19x9.5 et33, 275/30/19 tires with 12mm spacers front and back.

    Had a slight bit of rubbing up front but I removed the fender liner screw and that seemed to fix it. Ideally I would like to run a 5mm spacer up front, but I had these already on the car.

    I would like to be lower than this in the future but for now it works fine.

    I suffered catastrophic wheel damage and needed to get replacements quick. I found a very cheap solution with OEM Audi wheels - A5 wheels. 18x8.5, ET29. That's 1mm difference in offset! They won't be the lightest wheels but they're factory OEM and for $98 a piece shipped I think I won on the quality vs price ratio.

    Gears turning in my head, and someone mentioning that there is a LOT of space in the rear...how about a staggered setup? Stick with 18x8.5 up front, but go 19x11 in the rear with 295/30 R19 tires? Who knows with real world variations between brands, but theoretical tire calculators show only a very minute difference in rolling circumference and diameter between stock sized 255/40R18, and 295/35R19. If it fits, that'll be pretty cool. I do have to wonder about what effect that would have on handling. Would it worsen understeer?

    Yes, absolutely.
    Also 295 might be pushing it. 285 could be a better choice. Either way, try to get a test fit before committing.

    I definitely want to do 275, probably not even push it to 285. But 295/30R19 is spot on exactly what a 255/40R18 is. Due to financial constraints foreseen in the 1st and 2nd quarter 2019 and expected tire replacement times, I'm thinking I'm going to have to move to wider 19" wheels two at a time.

    Thanks man, yep I'm in Miami, if you come down this way PM me & we can go for a cruise in our twinses!

    Was not 100% sure when I bought the smoked Hella's, had them in the trunk about 2 years before I installed them now that I've got them on I think they are great for the black pearl color combo.

    i also found a quite beefy 265/35/19 Michelin PSS in NO fitment. Which means Porsche fitment. That tire is fat and wide.

    Suits the RS6 perfectly.

    Refresh my memory, what wheels are we looking at here, and specs please? Flush with no spacers correct. These are a great look.

    OK, so these must be the VMR v702 in Gunmetal, 19". What width and offset is it? Fit looks darn perfect! Getting close to putting these on the Mugello Blue car...

    Hi there, anyone know if these TTRS wheels will fit an RS6?

    https://www.ebay.com/itm/19-AUDI-TT-...ry!32084!US!-1

    Saw them on a black A4 and really liked the look. I am away from home and not sure of factory offsets and possible factory brake clearance issues

    Thx!

    You'll have a few fit issues with either of your posted options to consider...
    First is an adapter for the center bore, not an issue as you can get them, but an added expense to a wheel setup.
    Second is you'll most likely need to go to cone seat lugs...most aftermarkets are cones and OEM is ball, so $$ for lugs
    Third is offset, I'd go as close to OEM as possible (29)...one of the wheels that you posted are 45's, that's a pretty fat spacer and long extended lug bolt...
    For me, I'd never run a spacer on the RS6...heavy, powerful car and heavy OEM tire spec (XL load rating) which is hard on bearings

    If you really like the Rotor style wheels, find an OEM set...I'm pretty sure there are some versions with the proper offset (about 30), the'll be stronger, better finish, and have the ball seat lugs (without the need for spacers or extended lugs). Only issue would be a center bore adapter which would be the least of all evils above to consider.

    Hope this helps...not an expert, just my $.02 since you asked...

    Hubcentric spacers add no extra load on bearings, as long as wheel centerline remains around stock.
    Hope that made sense.

    Also, 20's on a C5 are very much pushing it. You'll need very skinny tires and will rub anyway.

    What Nubcake said about the bearings having no extra load, that is why you are using the spacer to get closer to the OEM offset. I do agree with you that the extra long wheel bolts might be a weak point but I don't have data to back that up, I'm too lazy to search. I've been running BBS RS-GT wheels in 19x8.5 et32mm but using 10mm spaces and 45mm longer Cone bolts. With the BBS's wheels, the flange is thicker and just adding 10mm to the stock bolt size (27mm I think) wasn't enough, I had to go longer.
    Just got a good deal on Titanium bolts, Cone 45mm from ECS tuning for the RS6, and Ball 27mm from USP motorsports for the RS5. I imagine it will take my 0-60 down by a whole second....right???
