    Hello Everyone ! I am planning to drive through Europe and I have to buy winter tyres for my A6 C7 2.0 TDi 2016 , current size is 255/35 R20 . I am thinking to buy used tyres with 6-7 mm tread . I wouldnít like to spend £1000 for new tyres only for one trip . I found a tyre shop and they have 4 Pirelli in size 255/40 R20 , the guy said itís ok and fit for A6 . Anyone has experience what if the size bigger ?

    It will be little bit higher.
    35% from 255 is 89,25 mm
    40% from 255 is 102 mm
    1.3 cm higher
    Not a big deal, but if possible manufacturer size is best way.

    2011 Golf MK6 1.6 tdi CAYC 5 speed

    You might have more luck looking for a set of winters on alloys in 18" size. Ebay de usually have quite a lot.
