    BBS CH wheels on but I dont like them

    Had them on for a week now and I'm not happy with the look, I know if I lower it it should look a lot better but think I need to try another style of wheel, so if anyone is interested I have them up for sale here http://audi-sport.net/classifieds/sh...t/3079/cat/500

    I think you're right, they don't suit the A4.

    It's weird... they're so similar to the BBS RX2's, which I think DO suit the A4, but the CH's just don't look quite right...

    I know this is a B5, but you get the idea:

    I think the audi A4 suits a more meaty wheel/tyre rather than a thiner spoked wheel/tyre.

    19's and lowered would probably have looked a lot better,the wheel itself is gorjus.

    They're more than big enough, they're 8.5"x18" ET20, with 255/35x18 rubber.

    I'm not really into the slammed look, I'm more into handling. Over-sized wheels and a massive ride height reduction won't aid handling.

    The front will drop slightly lower once the new engine and transmission go in.

    Siena: i think the comments were about the OP's car, not your B5.

    18's on a B5 is plenty, but the B6 arches seem a little larger, and i think they can pull off a 19" rim

    Tons better! Think you need to colour code the bits aswell then it'll all start to fit together. Grey lowers dont do it any justice being that colour!

    Siena,

    i was on about the blue b6 at the top, not yours mate.

    as for the blue b6, thats alot better, cant believe the difference.
    agree with j7uss, needs colour coding.
