    Replace my damaged AVUS wheels or 18" RS4 reps from Wheelbase?

    Hey guys,

    I've got a couple of badly damaged AVUS 17" wheels on my S3 (some pretty mean lumps taken out of it) and I need 4 new tyres before the MOT next month so I was pricing up some options.

    1) Search eBay for some replacement AVUS wheels and fit my preferred choice of tyre to them (then sell my damaged ones for whatever I can get for them)

    2) buy 4x 18" RS4 reps from Wheelbase complete with tyres and sell my AVUS ones (like above)

    What would you guys do? I cannot afford genuine RS4 wheels alas

    I would go Avus too , good looking wheels and you know the quality is there unlike some of the replica wheels that can be bought.

    I did the exact same thing, with toyo tyres last year... Replacing the tyres shortly - that is one noisy tyre and does not grip in the wet for shizle.
