    New S5 Replica Wheels

    Ok I am sick of the RS4 wheels on my A3. I have decided to buy the S5 reps in 18''. I am going to go and buy them on Saturday but would like to hear what you guys think. Here are some images of them on a very similar car.

    What is the verdict chaps?

    Better than OE, and certainly look nice enough on that. Gets my vote.

    Think they look better than the RS4s? I was getting so tired of them. The more I look at the S5 reps the more I am starting to like them.

    I think the S5 alloys are one of the best alloys you can have on an Audi.

    A member called Scorpius has them on his white s3 and they look really good.
    I was thinking about getting a set back in january but decided for the genuine facelift S3 alloys, which i still love and still on the hunt for another set.
    I'd go for them! Thumbs up better than the rs4 alloys and rs6 alloys. The S5 alloys look much newer and up to date. set teh car off nice

    I can't get 19'' because of the DOG**** roads here in Turkey. If I were back in sunny Glasgow I would opt for 19''s in a second but here it's just asking for heartbreak. These roads really do have to be seen to be believed trust me. I still think the 18'' S5 wheels look bigger than the 18'' RS4 wheels though. I really am starting to like these bad boys.

    I like the S5 wheels on the S5 & new A4 but not so much on the A3/S3. Think the RS4s suit better. They dont look bad though, just not as nice as the RS4s.

    What do you mean by RS5 reps? Obviously the photo you've posted is a photoshop of an S5 with bigger wheels (not sure what those wheels are though, look a bit fussy for Audi wheels). The RS5 is apparently likely to have the same wheels as the RS6 though in the same way that the 'S' cars have the same wheels.

    I don't think anyone knows for sure what the RS5 is going to look like. I think this photo is another photoshop of an RS6 merged with an S5 but it looks pretty good to me! :

    I live and work in Turkey so I have ordered them from a local company. The wheels are Hartmann though. Has anybody seen them on any other A3s yet?
