    I belive they are a reputable company, but it's best you check they have the item in stock on phone before ordering online, as they sell these wheels and tyres on a daily basis from the counter, so stock online may not be accurate.

    Have you checked for second hand ones first, thats pricey for replica's and they will also come with low quality budget tyres. nice wheels and different from the norm!

    http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/18-GTi-STYLE-A...item4ceef3a888 - could get some tyres fitted youself may work out cheaper

    just had quick look theres loads of those style wheels and tyres for alot less.

    Or just phone wheelbase up , save them the Ebay fees and see if they will do a set with better tyres

    285 no tyres compared to 460 with tyres ??? I know which I think is the better deal

    and thats from someone who won`t have reps ever again ...........

    you need a good tyre, Toyos, F1`s , Avon zz3`s are my choice as a good all rounder but any will do , ring them they are very good and offer good advice normally

    They dont suit the A3 dude, there used to be an A3 round here running them and they looked really bad.

    18's mate, A3's on 19's look overwheeled IMO.

    Has your car been lowered?, standard suspension looks too high when running big wheels.

    Dude, dont go for the GTI Rims, and to be honest the 'RS8s' actually S8 rims are done and gone too, your best bet is going for some S4 Avus, S3 rims or the RS4 rims, new or old, they suit the car alot more and you can get them at a good price as well with tyres, apart from the S4 one probably.

    I like them as good if not better than the toyos I ve also had on and they look a lot better on the rim they look very square to the alloy if that makes sence, where I found the toyos looked stretched almost like id fitted a narrower tyre.
