    suggested rims

    I unfortunately have to replace my beautiful 18" Oz Superleggera wheels due to stress fractures and am thinking about trying a different look. Any suggestions friends?

    i've always been a fan of 18" rs6 reps.
    I know they have been done to death but the look suits the car.
    Maybe a quick search through german ebay for some inspiration ?

    Gotta love the RS6's, they suit most shapes...But depending on what colour the car is, these look awesome...

    I honestly don't know exactly why they have developed these fractures but I intend to speak to Oz because two out of the four developed them and rewelding aluminum rims is hard to do properly. I definitely looked at those ASA's but the fact that they are manufactured in Korea scares me a little. I think I am going to do the 35th anniversary rims from Oz. Any input would be helpful guys.

    If you can afford it though... go BBS... that is what I want to do. The CH looks SOOOOOO sweet on the A4/S4 *drool*

    Madkebab has got those wheels, and they look awesome in 19"

    Olly if you sold your genuines, im sure you'd have enough for these babies. Deep dish rims suit the rs4 perfectly.....mmmmmmm!

    Don't worry, the eye brows are optional

    I haven't the foggiest idea what they are, will have a look around for you. Looks like there is an 'R' badge in the middle though. I could be wrong :s
