    Looks like I've fiinally found the 19s I want so my Audi/BBS 18" 20-spoke pseudo split rims with mint Contisports (x2 new, x2 with 7k miles) are in need of a new home. The rims are in great condition with nothing but a few minor scuffs on the very edge of two of them.

    Here's a pic of a A3 with them on:-

    19" Audi rims - no pics as yet as I've not seen them on another A3 before. :)

    Thanks for all the PMs. I'll try and get some pics of the wheels and measure the tread depth in the next few days.

    There's a guide on the VWvortex forum with R8 style rims. My local dealer had one (R8) in the showroom - I didn't realise how compact it was!

    I like the Kahn RS-X rims but they only make them for 4x4 in 20s and above

    Apologies to all those who have PM'd or emailed me. I'm away this week in the middle of nowhere and only have limited internet access, via my work Blackberry. For some reason I can't reply to PMs or answer personal emails :-( I promise to get back to you at the weekend and will post up some detailed pics of the rims.

    I'll let you know next week when hopefully I'll have them. They need a refurb and new tyres before being fitted.

    OK, so the car got washed today and I managed to get some decent pics of the 18" 20-spokes on my car. The wheels are in excellent condition. The two with slight scuff marks right on the edge of the rims are NSF, OSF. Both rear tyres are new and both fronts have done just over 9k miles now.

    can i ask how much you got the 19's for?

    i have aways liked the 19's more due to the centre of the wheel where the bolts holes are is much deeper.

    I'm beginning to really like these wheels now and seriously considering selling my S3 wheels and replacing them with 20 spoke just deciding wether to stick with 18" or upgarde to 19" .

    I really like the 20 spoke but am fearful of spoiling the unique look of the S3, it s a shame Audi didn't make a little more effort with the standard alloys, don't get me wrong I like them - just don't love them. Decisions, decisions..........probably best to wait until after winter and then decide, if not the 20 spoke some other form of BBS multi -spoke.

    Well I like the RS4 wheels but its very important to get the correct size and offset.
    There is a set for sale on pistonheads which I think shows how not to do it,no offence meant if they belong to someone on here

    Oh!:ermm: Considering they're like ET29 or something similar they don't stick out as much as I imagined. Still a shoddy job though!

    Itching to try my 19s but a combination of work and bad luck isn't helping right now. I went to the local tyre place to get them fitted and they didn't want to know/help. Oh and a trip to the Goodwood Breakfast Club was more pressing:icon_thumright: Spied a Wortec supercharged VXR8...hmmmm, V8 power and 19s as std! :eyebrows:

    Well Sat is officially pulling out again! Seeing as people are fighting for them it shouldn't cause any problems at all:icon_thumright:
    Its actually been a hard decision, I really wish I could have gone for both but in the end I decided to go for the wide buggers!!
