RE: 205/50-15 TIRES ON 90Q?
Your probably getting a lot of conflicting information and assumptions on the correct offset for
this car. I know, I went through this over the Winter. There seems to be some confusion as to what
is the correct offset for the 80q/90q/Coupe models. I may not know all the answers but there are
some things I know for sure.
1. We are dealing with several different cars with different offsets:
37mm 90Q-20 Valve
37mm Coupe Quattro (20 Valve)
2. I have a 90Q-20V and I have 205/55-15" and they fit nicely, This was the OEM size tire for this
car (20 Valves only). The wheels fill up the wells almost completely and you would not want a wider
wheel w/o modifications.
3. You want a really nice wheel, made in Germany, designed to look good with Audis, then take a
look at Rial (800-919-4335). They are rarely seen in the states and they offer several models in
the specific offsets for your car (37mm or 45mm or whatever you need). I have the Rial MS 15" on my
car and they look great.
4. I highly recomend you buy your wheels/tires from a local shop. They won't screw-up the size and
if they do you don't pay for it. They usually meet or come very close to mail order prices and
offer a bit of free service too, as well as advice.
Finnaly, if you want the straight poop on wheel offset for your quattro call Anderson Bros. Quattro
garage in MN (612-937-8639). They will certinaly know.
