    Genuine wheel or not?

    A friend has these on a mk4 golf and says there genuine VW/Audi wheels?

    Any ideas if they are, he says there from a TT?

    They dont look it to me....

    Wouldnt think they are genuine Audi wheels but i think they are from the TTS or something. a few on here have these but in the standard finish which i think it black with polished face,

    I think they are called Nouvolari, or however you spell the damn thing!

    Voorhees has them on his too!

    Only way to tell if genuine is to check at rears for the stamps & part numbers, but I have seen this style before on vag cars somewhere.

    +1, but they dont look quite right to be genuine...I may be wrong though.

    As has been said, whip one off and have a look at the inner face.

    If they are genuine they will be 5 x 112 PCD and not 5 x 100 PCD... he will have used PCD adaptors to fit them

    They are the same that Voorhees has and i'm 99% sure VAG never ever produced them so they aren't OEM.

    Nuvolari's, definitely replicas, they are a design from the Audi Nuvolari concept.

    I've just been over to Audi Hatfield and they have a brand new A4 in their showroom with a 5 spoke version of the Nuvolari so maybe they will produce an 8 or 9 spoke version at some point.
