    RS 4 Style Alloys

    Does anyone know where I can get some original Audi 17" RS 4 style alloys from? I want to change the standard 16" ones on my TSport.

    I've looked on ebay and have been unlucky too many times [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/frown.gif[/img]

    Cheers

    Rochford Tyres sell them, although I would recommend going for 18" rather than 17"... more pleasing to the eye.

    You can get replicas, look really good. I paid 700 for 18" RS4 with Avon Tyres ZZ3

    Re: RS 4 Style Alloys

    Do a search on subject - My baby has new shoes too and you will find some good pics of the replicas.

    I bought some 3 weeks ago and posted some pics of the wheels on my S3.

    I've also heard reports on different quality replica's but I have to say the ones that I bought from Rochford tyres are superb!

    Cheers
    Rich.

    Re: RS 4 Style Alloys

    Thats great thanks - look excellent I must admit.....

    ...trouble I've got now is fitting them to a new A3 without invalidating the warranty (obviously going for the correct size as well) ..... [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/frown.gif[/img]

    Re: RS 4 Style Alloys

    the air flow may be wrong
    the wheel weight may be different
    they may have a different offset
    etc
    etc

    Re: RS 4 Style Alloys

    Yes they do the RS6 replicas, but best way to get a deal is to actually turn up at the shop instead of phoning in. They prefer to see you in person, I got a good deal on my Porsche Cup replicas from wheelmania (Sheldon Branch)
