The safest way for you to go wider is to order a wheel and tire set for the SS from tirerack.com.

I had this experience with my 2010 A6 during break in. It was gone after maybe 1,000 miles.

The best I've done with a 5th Gen SS A6 is a bit under 13.6 and 107 mph, so I think the Gen 6 V6 would be fun enough for me.
