    Rotor Rep weights?

    Unless I can find some genuine anthracite RS4-type wheels at a very good price, im thinking I might just go for some rotor reps (yea, I know, but can't afford new genuine rotors) ...

    Slapping some heavier wheels on is a concern tho ... does anyone know how the weight of genuine 18" rotors compares to something like:

    Buy 18 Inch Riva RTT Alloy Wheels | 18 inch Alloys | Riva Alloys
    or the WSP WSP ITALY Giasone GMP Wheels | WSP ITALY Giasone GMP Alloys | Performance Alloys.com ® The Alloy Wheel Experts ™.

    Anyone have any weight figures for them? Best quality rotor rep maker?

    I don't see the problem with reps. It says £210 per wheel for 18 inch rotors for mine. Il be ordering a set of them in June/July.

    I see a problem if they weigh a ton or fail/warp often

    Im running 18" TTRS reps - I can only compare them to my 17" Standard alloys and 19" S5 Alloys which I bought and didn't fit But the weight on the TTRS are significantly lighter.

    The reps are lighter? Thought they would all be heavier than any of the standard Audi wheels ...
