Hi Pat. Where are you located? I have a set (4) of unused (ie old but in perfect condition) 15 x 7 Audi A6/8 alloys in Melbourne. These will require minor modification to fit your Syncro (slight enlargement of centre bore, and probably longer studs, which I think you’d need for most alloys). I ran a similar set of Audi 15 x 6 rims for many years, with no problems. Never got around to upgrading to these. If you are local, you’d be welcome to come and see how they fit up. They are currently fitted with tyres which are probably not roadworthy, but at least mean you can try them out. Price negotiable at around what they owe me ($360/set). PS. Can’t remember the offset at the moment, but they were close enough.
I’ll be away until after the Bateman’s Bay tour. Should be home around 23/1.
Pat is my name and this is my 1st email to this group, having only recently joined I do have a query I hope to get positve feedback on.
I have an 91 ex telstra T3 Syncro with the original 14" steel rims up until recently this vehicle was not my daily drive but now it has been returned to this service.
The tyres I have on this are at present Nankang 215/R14C 8PR they have a reasonable tread pattern and overall diameter is approx 700mm, however due to not previously driving it as much I have encountered problems with the tread lifting from the main carcass therefore putting me in search again for a tyre to suit the rims. I would like to get an all terrain pattern and finding a tyre that has a block tread, size/diameter to what I have and load rating is proving difficult, the suppliers can assist but the load ratings are less than what's reqd, Iwould love to get a set of alloy wheels in 15"x7" which should give me more scope however this to appears to becoming a diminishing alternative.
Can anybody assist with info on tyres and /or rims available in our sunburnt/flooded land.
