    What wheels - Genuine RS4's for sale, with tyres!

    Im looking at getting some new wheels for my B5, it's yellow with black badges and probably going to get a wheel that will look good in black, but don't want to spend too much, been looking at some genuine B5 RS4's and B6 S4's but also been looking at some Merc AMG wheels - anyone on here got any other suggestions, or pics of a yellow B5 on black 18's?

    Any input appreciated, thanks!

    anthricite is definately an option too, im going to do some photoshopping when i get them on at the weekend (hopefully) and then go on from there, i've done all the badges and grill surround in a gloss black now, so i thin kthe black will work well, but at the same time might be a bit too much, so we'll see what i can do with my p'shop skills!

    There are a couple of guys over on AudiSRS who have yellow avants with black/anthractite wheels. One of them has B5 RS4 wheels, the other has B6 rims.

    genuine rs4 rims will stick out past the arch as the offset is wrong i think? fine if you are putting rs4 arches on the car as well.

    Ian's right, gen-yoo-wine B5 RS4 rims are et20 - check they're not egg shaped too, there are soft and hard versions...

    Picked up the wheels on tuesday night and fitted them yesterday.

    the offset is definately an issue at the moment, but two of the wheels have smaller tyres (225/35/18 whilst others are 255/35/18) and that seems to have solved the problem with them poking out to far, anyone know a good place that does part/ex on tyres as the two at the back are nearlly new Eagle F1's? or anyone here want to swap them for some 225's?

    I'll put up some pics to show how far out the poke is this evening after work!

    Thanks

    Do you have 4 or 5?
    I don't have the matching spare and they have 4 brand new F1 eagles with less than a 1000 miles on them.
    wheels were brand new and had only been run on two track days when I bought them, same time the tyres went on.

    PM me.
    would certainly consider it depending on condition and part number (pre or post soft wheel recall/swap)

    I've just done a deal on these babies... they have an offset of ET 48, so should tuck in okay with some 215/40/18's on.

    I'll tell you how much I gave for them after I've picked them up... just in case something happens and I can't have them and the seller puts them back up for what they were advertised at... if you follow me.

    I'm picking them up on Sunday, after someone has picked up my old 18's off me on Saturday...

    I wanted to put some A8 Sport rims on my A4... same as the A4 QS rims, just in a bigger 18" fitment.

    I think they would look good... kinda OEM+ styling.

    My set of genuine B5 RS4 wheels are now for re-sale, been on my car for less than a whole day, probably only 30 miles on it, one tyre is brand new, all the rest are in good condition, loads of tread!

    Im really after some B6 S4 wheels in 18", or maybe the DTM-RS4 wheels in 18, if anyoneis interested in buying mine, please Pm and we can discuss.

    they are 18x8.5, ET20, 5x112 if you wanted to know, i can also send pics if needed.

    Here is the eBay ad, but would be willing to negotiate on price for members:

    Thanks

    I'm currently running B6 S4 wheels. I love the look. Previously had MTM Bimoto reps which looked kind of like dished B5 RS4 rims, but they are rare as rocking horse poo! Sometimes wish I hadn't sold them.

    those are the beauts i want, but painted either a dark grey/anthrecite, or black.

    i've been looking for those MTM reps, can get them in the states, and i have some family out there, but i think shipping would be a joke! just need to sell these RS4's then i can start looking for "that" wheel that will transform the yellow beast a bit!

    yeah a set of black CH's would be nice, shame they are a bit out of my price range!

    seen this lush blue S4 avant on the Audisrs forum with Gallardo reps on, not normally a wheel i would consider, but they look awesome, im tempted by a set of those...

    Sorry to say it, but I still think you're asking a bit much there. The soft wheels are the less desirable ones as they are more prone to buckling.

    Also whoever buys these will no doubt want 4 matching tyres. Might be worth trying to sell the tyres seperately to recoup more money.
