    New tyres vs Rep Wheels

    Hi,

    I have some old RS4 wheels on my S3 with pzero rossos that need changing, the alloys also need a refurb.
    I am wondering whether it is worth getting new tyres and refurb or to get a set of rep wheels with tyres?

    Where can i get cheap good quality set of reps which wont ruin the handling?
    or should i just stick with what i got and do a refurb and new tyres?

    Cheers

    i agree to. Rep wheels come with budget tyres like runflat etc and they aint good at all.

    Only get the reps if you plan on getting upgraded tyres on them as they tend to ship with bloody nankang or khumo tyres or some other ****e. If you can get some brand spanking reps with decent tyres for less than 4 new tyres and a refurb then your laughing, then you can sell your current wheels for an extra laugh
