    I saw a convertible RS4 with the second lot on. I hate to say it, but it looked awful.

    Not a fan of any either, however, if i had to have any, then it would be between 1 and 3 i think

    Of your choices I would say number 3... if I had to buy some wheels from Rochford tyres and they had to be non OEM 18s, going by looks only I would choose....











    ...these are the best ones on rochford though IMO and only a grand and a bit aswell..

    The 3rd ones for me. Are the 2nd ones M3 replicas? Saw some on a mk4 golf and they looked good. Try photoshopping them onto a side profile of your car as you may find they are all nice to look at but look ****e on your car.

    Think of the pain they are going to be when it comes to cleaning them!

    I've got the 2nd ones. I didn't like them at first but they've grew on me (thank f^&k!).

    I've had mixed responses but most people like them. I just like to be a bit different, sometimes I take a chance & it doesn't look good though.

    nah they dont work for me. The straight spokes dont work with the shape of the car in my opinion.

    If it was me it would have to be one of these on Roachford.. the last ones are reps of the CSL rims which i think are loverly, they have a nice dish and they would look good on an audi IMO... dont order if you dont know what you want!

    Nice but you have to admit, they're not very original. Probably like a billion other A/S3's out there. I don't mean to offend anyone with similar wheels but c'mon guys, let's break the mould from time to time!











    lol
    My S3 has a standard suspension set-up at the moment. It could be doing with a set of spacers admitedly but all in due course my friend.

    Maybe its because not many aftermarket wheels suit our cars without cheapening the look.
