    What are these wheels please?

    Hi,

    Anybody know the name of these? I was told they were called "Curvos" but I think that was a lie, because I can't find sh*t with that name! Help...

    Cheers!

    131 each. Not bad really for such a nice wheel. Wonder who will be first to bolt them on an S3.

    Yeah, not a bad price...within my budget too...but still unsure whether to go for the euro look, or stick to a sportier, racing look...

    I thought these would look crap at the start of the thread, but seeing them on the S3 has totally changed my mind! I would consider these if i was in the market for some wheels

    I personally think these wheels only look good on lowered Saloon/Estate cars like Passats or A4's, just my opinion of course.

    Yeah i agree, like 22" on an black S8!

    I think they also suit the S3, but i would go for a big size i.e. 19" cos i think its the sort of wheel that only looks good in BIG sizes!

    Hmmm tempting...I wonder how heavy they are, the last thing my car needs is more weight.

    Just been to my local shop, and i can confirm these wheels have stopped being made due to them getting alot of warranty issues.

    Probably because of the type of finish on them (just like the RS8 reps), in this country they dont last long because of the salt on the road eats the wheels! However, we have currently run out of salt, so it might be ok now...
