Yes you can. No adjustments required. 20" was a stock rim size with 275/40R20 tires. I run two sets.

"Callie" - 2013 Touareg TDI Execline, Cool Silver on Titan black
"Sophie" - 2010 Touareg TDI Highline, Campanella white on Anthracite - sold back to VW
"Celeste" - 2009 Eos 2.0T DSG Lux, Candy white on Anthracite
"Simone" - 2002 Golf GLS TDI, 5 speed, HID projectors
"Rocinante" - 1990 JDM HDJ81 Toyota Landcruiser turbodiesel, 5 speed, RHD

Factory 18 19 and 20 stock tires are normally universally interchangeable from T1 thru T3.

Factory 17 will also fit on all vehicles, except those with the 350mm brakes.

The R5 Touareg used a different wheel, which was unique to R5. R5 were never sold in North America.
