First, handling and comfort are in conflict. If you want more of one, you have to give up on the other.
Also, mileage (meaning wear) is in direct opposition for traction (especially wet traction) and fuel economy.
So now that you know how this works, you should be able to explain to a local dealer what level of compromise works for you and they can show you what's avaliable in your area.
If you want to do research before going to the loacl dealer. Tire Rack is an excellent resource.

I currently run 19" rims with 245 35 zr19 tires, to points made earlier they aren't the quietest things on earth but definitely provide the performance I'm looking for and a step up from the 225 whatever whatever 16"s that came with it....I really wanted 255's for the 19" rims, we tried (dealer brought them in for me) and they definitely do more than rub....they get stuck.
A comment was made about using spacers, I current use them on my mustang and love them but wonder do they impact the quattro feature? Audi puts a lot of emphasis on consistency with wheels/tires etc and leads me to wonder if they have a position on spacers. Also, can you use spacers on rear only or must you use the same for all 4? Any input would be greatly appreciated!

I have a 2000 Audi A6 4.2L (same as S6) and would like to put 245/45 R17 tire on. Because 255/40 R 17 are stock configuration, I am a little worried that the
245/45 R17 tire would rubbing the fender lip, when turning the wheels to maximum.
Any problems with this issue?
#28 of 30 20" Sport Package

Hi! I am considering adding on as a package the 20" Sport Package to a new vehicle I am looking to Lease. Planning to get the 2012 Audi A6 3.0 Prestige Package with Cold Weather, Audi Side Assist and considering the 20's.
For anyone that has the 20's sport package from Audi, how is the ride? Is it harsh? Also would you suggest to not get the sport package and just buy the 20" rim/tires separately, so as I will still have the regular suspension.
Thoughts/Comments would be appreciated.
