    Wheel opinions please?!

    Trying to decide on some wheels to go on the avant when I get it on Saturday.

    I've totally gone of RS4/6 new style reps as they just seem to be everywhere and I've had to just resign myself to the fact that I can't afford a quality BBS LM rep (all the ones in my range seem to be a graphite finish or generally nasty).

    So I've been digging around and come up with couple of sets I like, pretty simlilar but one slightly more modern.

    Which do you guys think would suit a Silver Avant with the Quattro GmBH kit?

    These:




    Or the slightly more traditional TT Style:



    What you reckon?

    fox wheels alway had a reputation for being soft and prone to bending and the car your fitting them on isn't the lightest ,like the design but would go for a stronger make , which means they cost more unfortunately

    just my view

    Sorry i don't like those wheel's . With the winter coming in fast i would save my money and wait for spring/summer and splash out on a nice set of rim's that will set your car off. And there are load's of show's lined up for 2010.

    I'd love to mate but with a 3 year old and another rugrat on the way early next year then there aint much chance!

    I have to get what I can afford and these are the styles I like rather than just looking like every other A4 on the road.

    I thought they suited this:

    Cheers lads, appreciate the opinions.

    Obviously would love to get exactly what I want but I think I'd rather have a cheaper set of wheels and then get a remap than blow it all on a set of 19's.

    For now anyway.....wheels can always be sold!

    The TT' s really do suit the car, I don't think they are overstated and add to the look.
    If you want some more ideas check these out:

    Yes Seb, they are Nice mate.Why is it, I decide on a wheel .....then someone comes along to make things less easier.
    Id have a set of them any day. Not usually a fan of 'loada-spoke' wheels but them ones dont look over kill....unless we're talking LM's then ill make an acception!
