I need a trained eye please:
I brought a set of used genuine 18" RS4 Alloys, one turned out to be buckled so I sourced another from ebay.
I assumed all genuine RS4 18" woud be the same.
It arrived today and it doesn't match.
(ignore the aparent size difference, car is on 225/40/18, new wheel is on 235/40/18. Alloys themselves match in diameter and width).
The space between the sets of spokes is bigger.
The finish is duller than the ones already on the car.
Is one kind a replica? If so which kind?
Shiz of ebay is 9 times out of 10 a massive let down!!!
Ones I brought last week installed, ebay one next to it:
Last weeks purchace:
Ebay purchace has part numbers stamped around the hub:
Last weeks purchase has the numbers stamped on the rear of the spokes (no photo)
Can anyone shed some light please?
