    replica or genuine? apart from price, any differences?

    Re: 18

    You can't fit genuine RS4's, the PCD (diameter of the wheel bolt layout) is 112 on the RS4, and 100 on A3/S3. You can get genuine 9 spoke TT wheels which will fit perfectly, or go for replicas for about 820 including Goodyear F1's. The style of TT 9 spoke & replica's differ from RS4's slightly. The curve is more pronounced on the RS4's and the beading on the spokes runs all the way round, rather than tapering out on the others. The most noticeable difference on replica's is the centre caps. These are usually cheap & nasty and let the overall wheel down, so budget for some original Audi wheel caps (16 each +VAT). I don't think you can do better than the F1's for the money, there are probably slightly better dry tyres, but when in matters (in the wet) the Goodyears are outstanding. Plenty of originals & replica's on ebay.

    Sorry forgot the attachment. These are my replicas bought from Rochford Tyres for 805 including tyres & balancing. I had to fork out for Audi centre caps as the ones that came with them (on the left) were really nasty.

    Re: 18

    I got them back in June this year. I needed a full set of tyres anyway, and the 17" wheels I had were never quite big enough on the A4, so I sold them on ebay for 300, thus the new wheels only really cost be 30 each.

    if u are in the south east u can try www.r-tecautodesign.com

    i got my rs4 reps from there, 895 with pirelli P7000, fitted and balanced. and came with center caps almost identical to Audi originals [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/laugh.gif[/img]


    watch out for center caps on the replicas they are usually the horrid (IMO) shiny ones as seen in the pic above, standard caps from an audi deeler will cost u about 16 each. just something to bear in mind when comparing prices.

    Sweet, amzing how dropping the A3 and putting some bigger wheels changes the look of the normally boring A3....the best mods I ever made.
