    New Photoshop Wheel Request Please

    Hi
    I'm considering buying some Team Dynamic Pro Racer 1.2 wheels in Black or Anthracite, and need an image to make my mind up, so I can compare one with the other? They will be 18"x9"...

    Here's a side on on shot of my car:


    Here's another:


    Here's an image of the wheel in black:


    many thanks !

    Was looking for a set of those wheels on a car to chop onto yours, but couldn't find anything decent!

    TBH, don't think it will look that good.

    However, find a pic of a car at roughly the same angle as yours, poiting either way, and I'll do it!

    i see the point of the wheels for lightness/performance benefit as they are a massive weight reduction over factory s4 wheels @ 21kg each with tyre, not sure what the rs4 ones weigh they look lighter but style wise i think the anthracite grey colour is the darkest i would go. i looked at nearly every wheel combo on here http://www.s4wheelgallery.com/ and thought the standard look is miles better than any bbs or aftermarket wheel so i chose to fit the 18" b6 s4 wheel and saved no weight at all but they look awesome and suit the car..These lambo wheels, i thnk they look like the ones fitted to some newish vauxhall vectras, i know thats a swear word on here but i'll find a pic

    Yep, know the lambo ones. Have posted 4 pics of them on RS4's on RS246 last night, as someone else is keen on them. Has been noted however, you have to buy 4x front wheels to fit though, as the rears are 11J !!

    Am havin' the TD's, but want the 2 photos done so I can choose between black and Anthracite. Think they'll both look good...

    Ok, a really quick chop so you get the idea.... not sure if thats 19" or 20".



    I kinda like it now, but I think Sliver or Anthracite, not black would suit!

    Think you need red or colour coded brakes!

    Can you do black though so I can see? And maybe a darker grey, like gunmetal?

    The brakes will be silver. Painted the rears today, and replacing the fronts for Cayenne 6pots next week.

    I hope this will be taken as constructive criticism, as thats how it's meant - but I far prefer the oem wheels to the suggested replacements personally.

    Darken a wee bit. Not going to do black as they're too small (image wise) to work with to make a decent selection of the spokes.

    Have found some in the anthracite! They're a bit darker than you've shown, and look quite...flat ?

    Halfords are an official distributor, yes. Used on a number of cars, like Lotus too.

    What I did like, though was the light weight, and the fact there are no RS4's in the country with them on at the moment, that I'm aware of. Grizz at Unit 20 has just bought a black set for his Misano Red B5 RS4 though

    Think they look great in anthracite, and think they'll look great in black too.

    the weight reduction is well worth it yes a few kg off each front wheel will make a massive difference.. anthracite would be my choice then

    They're actually about 10kgs/wheel lighter, which is quite a lot.
