looking at the Dunlop site (for example only), they list 6" as a minimum width.

Question: What tire/wheel combo does Audi use for the optional A6 4.2 wheels?
Answer: 255/40-17 on 8" wheels.  Several manufacturers I checked spec a 
minimum of 8½" for such a tire (including Dunlop for the SP9000).  BTW, 
Dunlop says that a srange of rim widths are "Approved", not "Required" or 
"Legal" or even "Recomended".
