Get the Right Tires for 2006 Audi A6

Buying new tires can be easy and quick, especially when you're equipped with quality information from the tire experts that know! That's why you should head our way when it's time to put new tires on your  2006 Audi A6. Firestone Complete Auto Care is your one-stop shop for  Audi A6 tires for winter, spring, summer, and fall. Whether you want a tire that's built to handle diverse terrain, improve fuel-efficiency, or take tight corners, you'll find good tires that match your budget.

View the recommended tires for your 2006 Audi A6, plus helpful information about Audi A6 tire pressure, tire size, and speed rating. Your vehicle can't drive correctly without the correct tires. As one of our tire technicians, Brianna, explains, "You want to find the correct size for your tire. It matters in alignments and keeping your vehicle driving the way it’s supposed to.”

Beyond the correct tire size, there are a couple of other factors to consider when buying Audi A6 tires like where and how you drive, and what tire brand you trust most. If you live in south Texas, you probably won't want to buy studdable snow tires. Washington state or Montana is a different story, though. If you live in a state with some extreme seasonal shifts, you might want to switch between winter tires and all-season tires for the best performance.

When thinking about your driving conditions, consider where you live (mountains vs. city vs. countryside) and the kind of weather can catch you off-guard. (Watch out Tornado Alley!) Drivers in states that fully experience all four seasons often buy two sets of tires: one set for winter, one set for summer. It's a smart way to capitalize on Audi A6's performance and safety throughout the year. Other drivers prefer to purchase one all-season set to limit trips to the tire shop and make sure their vehicle is prepared in the rain, sleet, snow, or sun!

Your personal driving style is the next factor to consider. Do you enjoy pushing your Audi A6 to the limits? Adventuring where other vehicles can't? If you're a big off-roading fan you forges paths where others can't, you have very different needs than a long-distance commuter who sticks to the highway. You'll want tires that can stand up to dirt, gravel, stone, sand, and more. You might even want a bigger tire with stiffer sidewalls and a wide tread pattern to help prevent punctures and maintain stability in irregular road conditions. But if you plan on sticking around town, a Audi A6 tire that offers low rolling resistance for better fuel efficiency might be exactly what you want. Browse Audi A6 tires online or come to your nearby Firestone Complete Auto Care for help selecting the tire that's right for you. You can buy 2006 Audi A6 tires online now!

Inspecting and caring for your tires is one of the best ways to help them last. Get answers to common Audi A6 tire questions and learn how to care for new tires.

  • What do the tire sidewall numbers mean for my Audi A6? The numbers on your tire sidewall give you information about tire speed rating, traction, treadwear, tire size, and load carrying capacity. Chat with a tire technician to learn how to read the numbers on your Audi tires!
  • Is there an easy way to check Audi tire tread depth? Stay on top of your tire tread depth to help avoid a dangerous drive. You can check tread depth with a penny. Hold the penny so that Abraham Lincoln is facing you, then place your penny into a tread groove upside down. If you can see the top of Abe’s head, your tread is shallow and it might be time for new Audi A6 tires.
