Default Swap RS6 wheels & tyres for 16 / 17 wheels

I love my RS6s, but where I live the roads are shocking. The tyres keep hitting the wheel arches in the bumps, so I have decided they must go. I am looking for a one for one swap (theyll be swapped directly from and back on to the van), with higher profile tyres than my RS6s have.

What have you got? Ideally 16 or 17 inches (no smaller) good straight condition with good tyres. Mine have minor curbing, good tyres and nothing untoward. I like the 5 spoke style, my old van had a set of Audi rims which I loved, but I am open to ideas. I have liked the offload styles on show this winter, but although I'd consider anything, I don't want steels as I already have some.

The snag though, I work away from home and won't get back until the first week of Aoril, up to and including Easter. So unless you can pop over tomorrow, it'll have to wait until then.

So what have you got?

Hi, links aren't working. I am back in the uk at the start of April. I have a tentative agreement a lady, but if that doesn't come off I'll let you know.

Cheers.
