    Best place for RS4 style alloy's

    Can anyone point me to a good outlet for RS4 split spoke replica alloys.
    After some 18's or maybe 19's to replace my S-line 17's.
    What width/offset should I go for and what's the recommended tyre size.

    cheers

    I bought these in Matt Black/Polished finish.. I did a fair bit of research into best quality reps and this company seemed to be top of the list. The manufacturer is WSP Italy which are meant to be superior to some other makes..
    I went for 18x8 ET35 with 18/40/235 tyres.

    I got mine from eBay, the place is wheel worx in Mansfield and for 19" with 45et with tyres they were around £680 if I remember. Here's a pic they also take or centre caps which is good.

    Your wheels look sweet. Have you lowered your car or it standard? Also, nice to see a car with imho the right tint shade on their windows.... instead of drug dealer black! :-)....Is that a 30%?

    Try Wheels Gateway. Click here. Good prices, great service. I've used them twice and been delighted both times. Most recently, I got a set of 18inch RS4 reps, with Falken Tyres, for £725. Delivery in 48 hours.

    I've been looking for a set of these style wheels for a while now but been staying away from reps as the ones I had on my Mk4 weighed so much! How heavy are these reps you guys are running compared to the genuine wheels?

    I ended up buying genuine ones from eBay. Was a long painful process but found that a few people were selling their spare ones.

    so bought one with a genuine Michelin tyre never been out on a car for £200 which I picked up,

    another with a genuine pirelli again never been on a car for £265 incl delivery and finally one which needs a slight refurb as there is some kerbing for £60 .


    ( I had one already) it took me about 2 weeks in total to source them all.

    Thanks mate, yeah it's lowered on Eibach 50/40 springs and the windows are factory privacy tint so the fronts are just clear and the rears were an optional extra on the car.

    I got some BBS CH Reps from BM Auto Sport in Wales (I think): VAG 5x112, BM Autosport Ltd

    He does all sorts of reps and some genuine sets of wheels. Very helpful guy and they offer tyre packages too if you want a package deal.

    I think my 19" BBS CH Reps were £500... (could have been £450 or £550, I forget), and I got tyres separately for £600, so £1100 all in.

    Car: 2007 A4 3.0TDI Quattro S-Line Cabriolet
    Mods: Pipercross Panel Filter, Smarttop, LED Plate Bulbs, LED Interior Bulbs, Blue LED Needles, Remap, EGR Delete, Custom Stainless Exhaust (4" Slash Tips), Cupra-R Splitter, Embossed Number Plates, 19" BBS CH Reps & Vredestein Ultra Sessanta's, 12mm TPI Spacers, -30m H&R Springs, MTEC Black Edition Brakes (Dimpled & Grooved), Mintex Pads, RS4 RARB, Vibe Square Subwoofer in Ski-pass & Alpine MRP-350 Amp

    VCDS - PM for details (East Midlands)

    Does anyone know what the % tint and film used on factory spec tinted windows?

    Thanks in advance,
    Allan
