    Considering new wheels....

    Wondered what people thought of these RS4 Nouvolri replicas....

    I'm thinking that I might buy a set and totally paint them in matte black for my car.

    Any thoughts/suggestions/people willing to photoshop as haven't got my laptop to 'test'. (It's been robbed )

    Tremendously tacky in chrome, and the detail would be lost in matte black. As boring as it sounds the RSTT's still look excellent on the S3.

    I like these wheels a lot, if i was going to change mine it would be a toss up between a set of these or some rstt's.

    I considered these wheels as they are similar to the RSTTs but are that little bit different, and I like to be different

    Going to keep my standard wheels though unless a set of S4 Avus wheels come up at the right price.

    my thoughts exactly. theyre not common as muck like RS4 knocks that every chav has and they are something slightly different

    weight as much as the moon though
