    whats your thought on these for summer wheels

    Seeing I have decided to keep the car for a while longer I am looking at a set of summer wheels. These have just been offered to me and are genuine audi wheels 112 with offset 43. included in the price is a full refurb and 225/40/18 goodyear F1's

    Just wondered what your thoughts are

    Not seen those on a B5, but there is a B7 A4 with these on just by me and they look really nice. And you can't go wrong with Goodyear F1's (unless they're made in Thailand!).

    I take it there would be no issues with the offset being different though?

    43's will fit fine,i have 42 on mine, they sit in a bit more is all. maybe 5mm spacers will bring them out nicely to the arches

    Yeah I would fit them and then decide what size of spacers would look best.

    My 17s are et43 and I have 20mm spacers on the back and 15mm on the front.

    What sort of price am I looking at for spacers. Also has anyone got an idea of what these wheels are worth refurbished with new Goodyear F1's?

    Lastly he has just asked me if I buy them would I like them refurbed a different colour. Bearing in mind they are going on a black car. For an extra 40 he will get them done black chrome ...just not sure about that though. Not seen many A4's with that colour.

    Don't think they'll suit a b5 to be honest, unless you make it proper dtm style.

    I would probably just get them silver.

    My spacers were about £50 for the 20mm rears and I got the 15mm fronts for £45 secondhand.

    I like them but not sure how they would look on a B5 but saying that they look a lot like the old Touring car wheels.

    If you made it touring car style you can actually buy that front splitter.

    Thanks for the pics guys. I quite like the look of them. I have had a few things come up over the weekend so it looks like I won't be able to afford them. The guy selling them wanted £750 fully refurbed with new Goodyear F1's, which i thought was a good price. If anyone else is interested though PM me and i will give the sellers details.
