    Considering new 18" wheels for my B8. Any advice?

    Good evening everyone!


    I just bought an Audi A4 B8 European version with very much stock extras. I run on the stock 16" s now (:D) and I would like to upgrade it to 18"s when the summer comes (I was considering 19" but we have really bumpy roads here, in middle europe - Hungary - so I did not want to go that way).


    I have some options and I am looking forward to your advice:


    OPTION ONE:


    OEM, used wheels. I can buy one from Hungary and it is really cheap, around 500$ for the 4, but there are a few bloom glitches on them...






    I can buy some on Ebay as well, like this:


    eBay: Neue und gebrauchte Elektronikartikel, Autos, Kleidung, Sammlerst�cke, Sportartikel und mehr � alles zu g�nstigen Preisen


    OPTION TWO:


    However, I really like the RS6 design what I can find on hartmann's website. I really like the offset numbers there as well:





    Of course, I as I got escited I realized they do not ship to Europe...


    So what I found at reasonable price are the VMR 708's with the RS4 design:


    eBay - New & used electronics, cars, apparel, collectibles, sporting goods & more at low prices


    What I do not know about these ones HOW AND WHICH OEM CENTER CAPS WILL FIT TO THEM?? At Hartmann's web site, there are clearly a link which cap number (item# included) fit the rims.


    As a conclusion here is my wish list design-wise:


    1., RS6-II LOOK - only at hartmann's at 18" :\
    2., A nice OEM 5 spoke audi wheel - I did not find the best one yet
    3., VMR's RS4 replice - I don't know which cnetercaps fits on them
    4., I saw some replicas like oewheelsllc, RS Import replicas, WSP Italy replicas from the RS6-II 5 spoke look I am really looking for but I do not find anything here which make me comfortable with those.



    What do you think about my options? Of course, I am looking forward to your ideas as well. Thanks for reading!

    I'd go for the new s5 ones. The twisted 5 spoke design. I havnt seen them on the b8 but think they will set it off nicely. Can you not get aftermarket package from alloy wheel dealer?
