    £250 max, what wheels would you buy?

    I have about £250 in a few weeks and im looking to fit some nicer wheels and tyres to my A4.

    I would like to fit 17"s ideally (no bigger due to actually enjoying the ride) and they would probably be second hand with tyres. I have seen loads of different types on a B5, has anyone got any nice recommendations?

    With pics would be great!

    Nothing wrong with your RS6's, think they suit the car well if I'm honest. But if you must change, you MIGHT get S3 / B5 S4 wheels for that budget.

    Otherwise, £250 will be a tight budget for wheels and decent tryes.

    To be fair mate your budget is very very slim. I'd put it on one side and save longer to get some wheels you want.

    Its not 110, its 5x100. And its because (8L) A3's and mk1 TT's share the same platform as the mk4 golf, so use 5x100 (same as later mk3 golfs).

    If you can find fat fives for £250 though, bite their hand off. Thats a spectacular price for such wheels.
