    20 spoke / 2 piece pic request

    Has anyone any pics of the A3 with 20 spokes, see how it compares to the stock 5 spokes?
    Cheers, Stu

    I've seen them both in the flesh and the 5 spokes are much nicer IMO.

    Not my cup of tea, would rather has the 5 arm RS6's or the 14 spoke BBS ones.

    If i ever got an 8P those the are the wheels i would want, seen them on an A6 avant also i think they look a lot classier than the normal chunky/heavy looking oem wheels IMO
    That pic doesnt do them any justice though...

    May look good but a pain in the butt to clean.

    I asked this very same thing when I was placing my order, your call mate. I went with the RS6s

    Another thing is that they have rusted in the past around the nuts.

    I was tempted by these when I bought my car but they actually looked very small on the car considering they are an 18" wheel. The 5 spokes looked much bigger and also suited the car better in my opinion.

    Having had polished split rims similar to these rims before I can vouch for the fact thay they are a nightmare to keep clean and corrode very quickly.

    I can confirm that, had something very similar on my mkiv. Pain in the a$$ to clean. (and you can't use Clean Wheels etc on split rims 2/pc wheels)
