I run the 16" A6 2.7T wheels on my 2000 S4 in the winter with the winter
tire size that is specifically listed on the tire inflation sticker on the
car (forget what the size is). I got the wheels as takeoffs from Ronal
wheels. I paid $125, which I think was a pretty good deal. Send Gary at

Subject: [BiturboS4] 16" wheels?
Thinking about winter tires, will 16 inch wheels fit a 2000 S4?
My current set of summer tires (Nankang?) has a slow leak
in the left front that Discount Tire claims is too worn to fix -
although it wasn't too worn to balance 6 weeks earlier...
Anyway, I'm deciding whether to get 17" winter tires on the
existing wheels or try and find some other wheels and put the
winter tires on those - and for winter tires it seems smaller
wheels and higher sidewalls would be an advantage. That's
what I did with my 2001 A4 Avant with the sport package -
I bought a set of 15" A4 replicas and put the winter tires on
those. Sure makes it much easier to switch back and forth.
