A6 wheels?
« on: December 09, 2004, 05:32:34 PM »
Will I be able to safely swap my 15's for the 17's on an A6?  I need to make sure the breaks will clear and stuff.

They will fit. The Passat has small brakes, anyway. Your offset is ET37 the A6 is ET35. 2mm is nothing. You have a 2000, right?

Which ones ? Mesh or spoke?

You will be fine, the A6 (2.7 and 4.2) has the large front calipers so if they clear that they will clear yours.  If you are running stock front calipers the wheels from (2.8, 2.7T and 4.2) should work.

They have she same bolt pattern.

Cool...I just had to make sure before I started pullin wheels.  If the dealer wholesales the A6 i get to swap wheels.  I don't remember what kind they are its been a long day and we've had so many audis traded in.  I'll let you know what kind when i get a chance to go back up front again.  I just know they're 17's which will make my car look sweet!!

the one problem is that if you are going to swap, your 15's may not fit over the A6 brakes.  In my mind that is the 1/2 of the swap to be concerned about.  I agree with Jay, the A6 rims should fit on the passat nicely.

Oh crap, didn't see that part.  If it is a 2.8 the 15"s should probably fit.  You need at least 16"s for the 2.7T and 4.2 because of the front calipers.

Good call on that Andrew, that's what i get for not paying attention.

$450 for wheels + tires or just wheels? I think still a good price for just wheels and a steal if w/ tires.

He said just for the wheels but i think i'm gonna keep bugging him until he gives me the tires too.  I'm buying them off a kid i go to school with.
