    Are these any good?

    Thinking of these for my S3 facelift. Any experience of dealing with them? Are the wheels / tyres any good?

    Oh and am I right to think you can then get centre caps/logos that will look right?

    Hi, I got these exact wheels for my A3 1.8T, but i got mine from rochester tyres, think they were abit cheaper than that, there based in essex, if your close to there they fit them for free.. anyway, they have been really good, and look nice..

    I got my RS6 reps from Wheelbase, they were fine til I had a blowout and blew a chunk of metal right out of the alloy O_o

    Probably just bad luck though tbh. Mine came with centre caps and wheel nuts as well btw.

    The tyres that came with mine were alright in terms of grip, nothing great but they were OK in the wet. The valves on mine were sh*t though, two went within a few months meaning the sidewalls got scrubbed and I needed new tyres.

    Mine came with Audi centre caps, you can specify when you buy!
