    Lenso Samurai Series

    I am about to decide on the wheels for my car. I have been offered a good deal on an 18" set of the Lenso Samurai Series SC02. I had a wee look at them today and I was amazedat how light they were. I have to say that I really liked the design as well.

    Question is, has anybody ever heard of Lenso before? Are they a reputable company? If so, would any of you consider putting a set of their wheels on your A3? Please give me some feedback guys...time is ticking away for me and your opinion is valuable.

    Cheers. Your input is valued and welcome. Please I need more comments. If you had to choose between RS4 wheels and these which would you select?

    Well the good thing about light wheels are:
    1. Better acceleration
    2. Improved handling
    3. Weight savings
    4. Better mpg.

    My OEM S3 wheels weight about 12,2 kilos in 18" and you can actually get some lighter forged wheels, that weight about 8 kilos in 18". So in the end the weight savings are about 4 - 4,5 kilos for each wheel!

    OZ Ultraleggera are also one of the lightest wheel on the market.

    So if you use your car for trackdays, then it will be a good thing. Otherwise its what you want and dont think what people say, cause its your car.

    It has been decided. I am putting the 18" RS4 things on it. I think they will look minted with the tinted windows and the black paint. The boy said he would paint the brakes red as well if I wanted. Think that would look good or chavvy? Has anybody done that? Pics?

    The rims are nice but just don't suit the A3 which is why people are not taking a liking to them.

    You've made a good choice with the RS4's and won't regret it =)

    BBS or OEM ones again, but they do look nice and not too OTT.
