    Spigot rings

    I'm thinking of getting some new wheels, Riva RSX Alloy Wheel Details | Audi A4 (B8) Saloon / Avant (Estate) (2008 - 2012) - Rimstyle.com, as the 18" S-line wheels seem a bit small and I think 19's will look a lot better, but the new one's will be supplied with spigot rings to give the correct centre bore, what do you think, is that ok or is it best to get wheels with the correct centre bore?.

    Just get genuine ones, your driving a B8! But there is nothing wrong with spigot rings, I have them on my A6 rims as they are 66.6

    The genuine ones are around 2k I think, I'll have another look around, cant seem to find any on e-bay, unless I missed them.

    Have you considered selling your 18s? If so then I'd be interested in them to use on my S4 as winters.

    Thanks all, I'll keep looking, I think I'll stick to the correct centre bore, found some others with the correct bore.

    longp2, I will sell them, no point keeping hold of them, I'll let you know when I get around to changing.

    Thanks mate. Forgot to mention that i had a quote for replica Audi wheels with winter tyres on from Revolution in gateshead and they came in well under OEMs. I know the quality may not be quite as good but they have the correct bore, pcd, et etc so do not need to have spigots fitted.

    Thanks mate, I've found a place that does them, but deciding on the right offset is driving me mad, I'm going for 19/8.5 but the offsets available are-et 32/35/45, I think the first two may be a bit too much extending 21 & 18mm and 45 will extend 8mm more than the standard wheels, I just can't make my mind up.

    If I'm right the standard s4 wheels similar to the original post are 19/8.5 et43 does that sound right, been browsing the show threads on Audizine all bleedin day.
