    Marc, dunno what the offset on yours is, but the B7 RS4 offset is ET29

    What type of tyre pressure sensors do you have? Some VAG cars use actual pressure sensors bolted inside the rim, and others merely use the ABS wheel speed sensors to calculate differences between rotational speeds. Mine have the first.

    B7 RS4 rims have no magnesium - they are merely a aluminium/silcon alloy. If your chemistry is any good: "Al Si7 wa".

    Oh, overall mass, with new Pirelli P Zero Rosso 255/35 ZR19 96Y is 23.6kg. I havn't been able to weigh a loose rim yet.

    HTH, rgds.
