The stock tyre size for my audi a6 is 225/55 r17. The options available for it are
1. Pirelli p7 cinturato
2. Michelin primacy 3st
3. Yokohama V1034. Bridgestone Turanza T001
5. Good year
Could you please help me decide which brand to go for which would provide
me with best quality and which are meant for comfort and complete road
Thank youRead More
You should go for Pirelli Cinturato P7 if budget is not a constraint. This tyre offers great ride quality, handling and superior comfort. Even the tread life on it is great.
Other than that, Michelin Primacy 3 ST would be a very good choice. This tyre also offer great comfort and handling along with superior ride quality and long tread life.

I want tyres for my 2012 audi a6 best suited for comfort and silence. Do tell me what happens if I choose higher profile tyres than stock. Also do tell me what will happen if I choose higher width tyres than stock. Thank youRead More
You cannot go for high profile tyres as that would require a subsequent decrease in the tyre width. This process is called Downsizing. It is not only highly dangerous but also illegal.This will pose a problem while claiming insurance in case of a mishap.
In case you go for a wider tyre with higher side profile then you are using a wrong tyre size.
The idea is that with increase in tyre width, the tyre profile decreases so as to maintain diameter difference value around 3% or less than that.
So, you can either continue using stock size or wider tyres with a slight corresponding decrease in sidewall.
Going for wide tyres help you get better road grip and improved braking. But, your ride could get a little bumpy and tyres will wear out relatively quickly. It is best that you stick to the stock tyre size as the tyres of A6 are anyway reasonably wide.
