    The Holy Grail !!

    Well,

    Its been a bit of a search, but thanks to a link provided kindly by Derek Ross the holy grail is within reach!

    I heard back from the guy at AutoAlloyz.co.uk to and while the RS4 replica wheels are not, the Audi S-Line rims they have are single drilled, 5x112 ET-35 !!



    and they look enough like RS4 rims to me!!

    A Set of these, with 225-40-ZR18 Avon tyres comes in at 899 with free next day delivery and the usual fitting kit.

    Re: The Holy Grail !!

    From what ive heard multi-drilled are supposed to be fine...?

    Re: The Holy Grail !!

    I'm sure they are, i just dont personally like the idea of driving a big A4 Avant hard through corners on rims with more holes than necessary in the loadbearing bit of the rim round the middle.

    Just a personal thing i guess.

    Re: The Holy Grail !!

    The Avon tyres that are included in the deal are not ZZ1's by any chance? If they are, I recommend that you choose another type! If they are ZZ3's then they are ok.

    Seriously, I bought a set of RSTT Reps from Rochford tyres which came with ZZ1's and they are truly awefull!

    Hope this helps

    Re: The Holy Grail !!

    cool, cheers for the tip guys, i shal lmake sure they deffinitely arent ZZ1's, as for avon rubber in general, i have some avon's on the back of the cortina and got nowt but good thing to say bout them, although admitedly its a totally different kettle of fish to the audi!

    might push the boat out for some Goodyears or something, what is everyones absolute tyre of choice then?

    cheers.

    I'll confirm the ZZ-1s are awful. I'm sure mine are made of ebony... rock hard, no grip and an uber bendy sidewall - crap!
