    MTM Bimoto Alloys

    Hello all...

    I'm pretty much sold on the 19" MTM Bimoto alloys with the diamond cut/polished finish for my Avus silver A3. I think they're really great looking wheels, as are the Sportec rims.

    The prices i've seen online are around 1200 +tyres. Is that the best i'm going to find or can i get them cheaper anywhere else?

    Does anyone here own a set of Bimoto's on an 8P A3? Opinions on the quality? Care to post any photos?! Photos and opinions on the Sportecs would also be much appreciated.

    Thanks in advance.

    Paul.

    Alloys for S3

    QST are the only importers, and I phoned up on friday to buy mine, but they were out of stock, of the titanium ones at present, and then said they would probably be more money now as the poor exchange rate!!! - I am ringing them again on monday

    Make sure you keep me posted on what they say... Mind me asking what the wheels will be costing you? Also what tyres are you thinking of going for?

    I will be putting TOYO Proxes, as advised by Kim at QST - plus I had these on my MKV GTI and R32 and they are a great tyre, albeit quite soft, but that makes it all more fun.

    Im speaking to Kim tomorrow, and will let you know

    Just spoke to Kim @ QST, and my wheels are ordered - Not in stock at present, but will be here within two weeks, so just in time for the arrival of my car. I went for the Goodyear F1 Assymetric 235-35-19 in the end, as these are the best rated tyres at the moment and worked out cheaper than the TOYO's

    He has got some wheels in stock though(just not the titanium), at the price advertised 300+VAT per wheel, and he's also got plenty more coming in

    if only buddy... lol. They photoshop. Look real genuine though eh.

    Your right they would nice with Avus silver. I got a mate with a Avus B5 Rs4 whos got the same rims and they do look nice. So good choice in that....
    But as for prices they are expensive including the tyres your looking a bill in the region of 1600.



    Not feeling these though.

    Haha, that is a good photoshop job!! At a glance it never twigged!

    Considering how much these things cost i think i should see some in the flesh before buying. I'd also like to see some Sportec Mono 10's as well. They look pretty awesome from what i've seen and a nice curve to the spoke.... Could do with robbing a bank to be honest!

    I had the MTMs on my S3. They look the dogs, but they don't do much for the handling - just too big. But they're not too heavy considering the size.

    I think you'll find that the 1200 you were looking at is plus VAT. I paid nearly 1600 without tyres from QST.

    Was that your price for the black wheels? Black isn't offered as a standard colour so they're going to be more anyway. My price definitely wasn't 300 per wheel +VAT....That would be outrageous!

    Actually on second thoughts it could be minus VAT...I'd have to check. Does anyone know how much a set of 19" Sportec Mono 10's are without tyres??

    Nice.
    My previous MTM S3 i bought was from someone who replaced it with a 520bhp Rs4. Never got to sit in it but boy oh boy that must be special.
    Unique car well done mate.

    Just checked the reciept, they were 1457 delivered, inc VAT, from QST. Or, 300 per wheel, 40 delivery, and the rest to the taxman. They were originally silver, but I had them powdercoated in black. Just to be different

    Isn't that for the 9.5x19s? I think the 8.5" wide ones for the S3 came in at about 13-14kgs. Still too heavy.

    Be careful of the Diamond cut face, they dont work too well with British weather - lots of salt on the roads in winter

    I know i thought of that...I'd keep my original RS6's for winter wheels.

    Still not decided which rims i like best to be honest. I'm really surprised at how much the MTMs and Sportecs weigh. Does anyone know roughly how much the standard 18" RS6's weigh in at?

    Has anyone got these yet on their A3?

    I am considering these but have been told that 19" will kill the performance...

    Makes for a harsh ride etc...

    can people who have bought these comment?

    If you are worried about weight there are a few options. OZ Ultaleggera, any Volk Racing forged wheel (not cheap but amazing!!), OCT Tunings forged B7 (looks like an RS4 but mega light weight). In fact any forged wheel will give you high strength and light weight, but usually they are quite expensive. Give me a call on 0151 343 003 or PM me if you want any more info on light weight wheels.
