    so finally wheels are fitted ...!

    recently got myself some rs6 wheels (reps) for £200 quid, with what seemed all perfect tyres.

    so i give them to my mate for a refurb, did a brilliant job considering how bad they were. done them in a metallic grey.

    after a day of driving on them, something wasnt quite right. so took them off, put standards on and handed them to my mate at meri tyre.

    rings me an hour later...front two tyres are sha**ed. basically they were a really low profile, 225/35 19. and runflat. the owner before me had clearly been running them flat. so tyres were not road worthy now. £340 quid lighter in the pocket.

    so i tell him to check the rears as well, tyres fine. good news.

    anyway here they are, excuse the capless centers, still unable to find the correct ones.

    a pic of edge before:


    same area after refurb:



    and them finally on car:


    looking at this photo, they look a different colour. but i can assure you its just the light

    comments welcome.

    also right height is slightly higher, but i dont think too high???

    You are wrong.

    Knock 15mm off that and it will look SWEET AS.

    Nice wheels
    I quite often say I'm going to do things.

    Then never do them.
