    Where to go for decent BBS CH replicas?

    As title the last 4 years or so of miles on my RS6 reps have taken their toll and I now have 3 miss shapen wheels and thanks to a pothole recently a f***ing great crack in one

    Fancy a change and these are the only other rims that tickle me at the moment.

    CheeRS

    Offending crack


    Can't really moan too much as the roads are **** and the track days must have played their part in this too.

    Try and get a set of BBS Pescaras.

    They're genuine Audi option wheels which are CH's without the "MOTORSPORT" writing in the centre.

    They were an option on 8P A3's and Mk5 Golf Edition30's in ET53 and 7.5" and also an option for B6 A4 in ET45 and 8".

    Craig had a set of the A3 ones on his S4 with some spacers to sort out the offset:

    I've been looking at CH's recently on ebay. The price differences vary massivly I guess this is because some are genuine.

    Are ebay replicas any cop? Its CH's or the later split 7 spoke (hypersilver?) wheels for me and the ebay prices are very tempting.

    Just be aware of rep alloy and tyre packages as you will get cheap budget tyres that 'can' be terrible....i.e road noise etc.
    Ive never had any issues will replica wheels though.

    Yeah I would nver buy a tyre package unless the brand and model were clearly marked. When I saw the crack above I thought no way but then 4 years plus track days and potholes kind of makes it acceptable for the price. As long as they are not going to smash to bits and cause an accident.

    What are the split 7 spoke wheels found on some TT's, the B7 A4 Cabrio and the B7 RS4 called?

    I never skimp on tyres and am exceptionally fussy about what I fit. Literally just want the rims as the tyres are ready to roll.
