If you go over to Audizine there are a ton of posts from people who have gone the custom wheel route and many seem to be in the 20"x10" area. Granted, they are going for show, not go so they can get silly but it is a source of good info for what you are looking for I think. One other number you will want to pay attention to is the offset. Otherwise, you could get a wheel setup that is either protruding beyond the wheel well or is sucked in too far and in either case will look goofy.

Personally, I am looking at 20x10's with either 265 or 275 width rubber. Aspect ratio proportionate to keep the rolling diameter as close to stock as possible (i.e., not much sidewall). Will lower the car as well, probably going with the Stasis setup of springs and rear anti-roll bar... , you will also need to adjust the camber to accommodate the lowering if you are going that route.

If you like the Titanium look, the Hartmann replica 20's are 20x10 ET 29 and they recommend 265-30-20 tires. I have these on my S5 and the performance is excellent, and doesn't look bad. Some teenager remarked that they looked "sick," which I guess is a positive comment. I use the Michelin PSS tires with them. They have stock hubs.
