The owner towed that UrQ with a brand new A6 too.  Check out:

The tires were those nasty, hard, pitiful handling TRX's.  I seem to recall
the wheels came from an A2 rally car.  When you compare them to the 15"
wheels of the trailer it makes sense that they were the larger 415mm
diameter like the OE wheels of a BMW M6.

Mark, this is very interesting... a metric Fuchs... Tire is clearly a
Michelin, it is written on the rearmost sidewall of the front wheel. And
the thread is really a TRX, not a XGT V4 as I thought first.

We learn something new everyday !
