Yes. I'm running this. I am getting a bit of rubbing over bumpy roads with the RS6 285/30 Tyres. I think it would be fine using 275/30 tyres on the RS6 et25 wheels though.

A mate is running RS6 Performance wheels on his lowered RS7. He has never mentioned it rubbing before.

Hi. Not sure but is definitely rubbing under the arches somewhere when going quickly on a country bumpy road or even slowly over speed bumpers. However mine is a UK Black Edition with "S Line Sports Suspension" which is 20mm lower than SE and 10mm lower than normal S Line suspension. ImageImageImage

mmm. Are they genuine though. They don't stick out like ET25 should. Mine stick out more.

Yes genuine. Not sure if they are 275 or 285 though.

I had the 40mm h&R Springs on my car and they rubbed at the front, actually caught the wheel arch as I had 20mm spacers on too.

Changed to the KW kit and been great ever since

You have an RS6 don't you? This is about RS6 wheels on an RS7.
