    18" Avus 3 wheels OEM or replica

    Hi guys, first time on this board.

    I've been on the look out for 18" Avus 3 wheels for well over a year now but have struggled. I'm after a set that wont cost me a fortune to buy, refurb, re-rubber, and get adapters to fit my S3 (8L), or a set of reps that will fit straight on and dont cost the earth.



    Can anyone either point me in the direction of somewhere that sells reps or PM me if you have a set of OEM for sale.

    Thanks in advance

    They appear on ebay every so often, but as you are already finding, they are quite sought after and therefore hold good money.
    Basically, if you want some you got to get your cash out.

    PS. Mine are not for sale, sorry!

    Thanks, I'll take a look.

    I've already contacted them mate and they want over £700 just for the wheels before I even look at putting tyres on them

    I was close to getting some OEM ones, but the bloke couldn't be bothered to contact me anymore when I told him I had the money. I assume he didn't want to post them.

    Keep looking mate they are hard to get hold of but well worth it. They suit the 8L a treat too. I'll keep an eye out for ya.
