I need a wheel upgrade for my Audi in Toronto

Pfaff Tuning provides parts installation on all the products we sell. We can do wheel and tire upgrades on all makes and models, for both street and track applications.

We can also provide a wide variety of wheel upgrades for your Audi like painting and refinishing services. Pfaff Tuning can do brake caliper and wheel painting, as well as painting interior panels to match a colour theme on your car. You can even work alongside one of our tuning consultants to develop a distinct colour theme for your Audi. We use the highest quality paints and proven processes to ensure our work stands the test of time. If you plan on upgrading your wheels, there are two main measurements you should be aware of.

Rubber

Those letters and numbers on the side of the tire can be confusing but mean a lot. Let’s use an example to break this down: 215/55R16 93H. The first number 215 is the section width in millimeters, which is the distance from sidewall to sidewall. The second number 55 is the aspect ratio, as the sidewall measures 55% of the section width. The R means radial construction. The 16 represents the amount of inches the interior diameter is designed to fit, a 16 inch wheel in this case. The final number 93 is the amount of weight the tire can support or simply the “load index”. H is a speed rating that means the tire is good for speeds up to 130 miles per hour.

Hubs

Bolt patterns are something you should be aware of, so you don’t buy the wrong wheels for your particular Audi vehicle. Know if your vehicle requires a four or five bolt pattern, and keep in mind that 5×100 means that it requires 5-wheel studs with a diameter of 100 millimeters. You want to be aware of these numbers to ensure you get the proper wheel upgrades.
