    19" wheels, what do we think

    hey,

    starting to put some mod's to my a3,

    today i fitted my new wheels, been waiting since way before christmas (will need to google the name) i have tried to keep them as factory as i can lol, i have seen a set on the new a1 which are alike
    i also am about to start a 2011 front end (have all the bits now)

    still to fit wheel nut covers





    gonna drop the front a bit more to even it up










    audi a1 wheel

    cheers for looking, thoughts please

    They're based on the Nuvolari concept (A5 precursor) wheels, not those A1s. Reps, obviously.

    Not a fan of this style of alloys, first saw them on kias and thought they looked cheap:

    I meant your wheels are Nuvolari reps, I know the A1s are genuine.
