    I agree, thats why i got the rs6 5 spokers. They are so easy to wipe down and you can clean the inside rims so easily :P

    Re: My new wheels

    maybe he wants to mod it, yet keep it standard ergo replicating the size of the OEM wheels will be perfect

    Thats an awesome paint job on the A4, always loved that!

    Wheels look really nice, need some Meguiars tyre gel to get the rubber gleaming [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/laugh.gif[/img]

    Re: My new wheels

    I am going to wax the crap out of them tomorrow, helps to stop the dust sticking, and clean up the rubber then. The ride is not much different a touch harsher on really rutted roads, tighter turn in and more responsive to boot

    On the average road i cannot notice the difference at all ,woohooo !!
