    Show me your Wheels

    Should be ordering my wheels next week but want to do a final check on what people have got on their B5's

    Please could you post a pic or 2, what size they are and how much of a drop you have.

    They're to go on my Black 1.8t Sport

    Cheers guys [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/beerchug.gif[/img]

    Re: Show me your Wheels

    Do you all have bone crunching ride quality or does it deal it with quite well?

    Re: Show me your Wheels

    If you want to keep most of the comfort go for lowering springs and a profile above 45...
    The coilovers i have are FK highsports and they are excellent...i would suggest them to anyone who is looking for handling...with a match of low pro's. But it is a very stiff ride, and you feel every bump....

    If i had my comp mate, i'd roughly photoshop them on. But to me, that design would look awesome on your car!

    Re: Show me your Wheels

    Hadn't thought of that [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img]

    I'm not much good with Photoshop myself... although given a few hours I'd soon have it mastered [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/wink.gif[/img]

    Just wondered about opinions that's all... and wanted to show everyone the wheels, because I like them.

    I don't think I'll be getting new wheels any time soon... maybe after I finish the rest of the car but not before. I've been collecting parts long enough! [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]

    Re: Show me your Wheels

    No idea actually Olly... I saw them on e-bay a while back and saved the images but I've deleted the items from my watch list now [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/frown.gif[/img]

    Sorry dude.

    EDIT: Just done a quick search through e-bay. Here are the wheels in the guys e-bay shop, maybe you could ask..? Also, don't be put off by the fact that they are listed for a Honda with an offset of ET40, I definately saw them with ET35 previously and they were listed as for an Audi. Even asked him and the postage was ridiculously cheap, about 40 I think [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img]

    They are Rial Nogaro rims.

    I was gonna buy them but decided i liked the RS6's more because mine will eventually be anthracite.
