    Just recieved my RS4 replicas from Rochford Tyres!

    Been having some trouble getting these delivered (were meant to be here on the 2nd of Jan!) and finally got them a few minutes ago. But it was worth the wait! I'm so happy with them. They're 18" RS4 replicas which I'm going to fit on Thursday and they really do look smart! Not a crappy replica either. They're wrapped in Nankang tyres too, which isnt bad for what rochford called a 'budget' tyre. I'm in love!! [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/laugh.gif[/img] Thanks Rochford! Just hope I can keep em as spotless as the are now. One minor mark on them where the paint/lacquer has come off about half an inch square, but not too bad.

    Get em on the motor and send some pics. I remember way back when when 17" was big. Now I have small wheels [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/cry.gif[/img]

    although it being on 1.6 really wont matter too much. They will be fine for regular driving about.

    Re: Just recieved my RS4 replicas from Rochford Ty

    there is a scratch on them already and they have only just been delivered??? send the damaged wheel back and get a replacement!!

    also you should have gone for the toyo's IMO. they were only another 100

    Re: Just recieved my RS4 replicas from Rochford Ty

    Really? I know Nankangs aren't the best but certainly not the worst? Was expecting some re-manufactured unbranded crap. Nice and shiny black tyres though [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/laugh.gif[/img]

    Will get some pics up when they're fitted. Won't be lowered til next month though so a bit worred about it looking like a tractor. Got lots of things to do Thursday...fit wheels, new drilled discs, clear side repeaters, facelift rear lights, S3 spoiler. Friday will fit the facelift headlights once I find my hacksaw. :/ Then next month comes the lowering on SPAX springs/shocks and if I can find a black recaro interior will get that sorted too.

    Wheres the best place to look for a S3 recaro interior?

    Re: Just recieved my RS4 replicas from Rochford Ty

    there was a black s3 interior on ebay a while back.. thats your best bet

    How much did you pay? i hate to tell you this now... but did you know Leigh Tyres do exactly the same RS4 reps (same supplier as rochford) and my experience has been that they are always cheaper than rochford!

    Re: Just recieved my RS4 replicas from Rochford Ty

    I paid 605 including VAT for balanced wheels and tyres and delivery. As far as Im aware thats an OK price. Heard good things about them as far as reliability so decided to search no further!

    TBH I search everyday on ebay for the recaros. I saw that lot a while back too but didnt really have the spare cash at the time! Looking for either the cream or black interior (not two tone) [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/laugh.gif[/img]

    ah thats not a bad price then to be honest.

    the only way you'll get an s3 interior is if one has been crashed and broken. my advice.. if you see one.. buy it as soon as it comes up cause you never know how long before another one is available

    Re: Just recieved my RS4 replicas from Rochford Ty

    I have a set of Nankangs on my 18's. From a performance aspect they are satisfactory for what you pay. The biggest problem I have found with them is that they have absolutely no rim protection whatsoever. Two wheels already need a refurb. I am counting the miles down to when I can change them. I reiterate this is not due to how the grip etc but I keep and scrapping my wheels and it is a right [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/[censored].gif[/img] er

    Thanks.

    But HELL no! They are possibly the worst 'Company' i have ever dealt with. took 6 weeks to arrive, had to wire the money cos they dont accept card payment, and had to call and email EVERY DAY (which they NEVER replied to!) and FINALLY got the bumper. It was a nightmare and would have to be stuck to do it again. its a shame cos they are good looking bumpers!

    Probably easier going over to Germany and picking one up then? I'm seriously thinking about it.
