    I have recently ordered my car with the 18inch RS6 style alloys, however i am reading alot on here that they only look good in 19 do you think it will be worth selling them when the car arrives and buying some 19inch reps ? what is the best size to go with performance wise ?

    what do you guys think of the below either on brilliant black or ibis white

    If you're after performance, then the smaller the wheel, the better the acceleration

    However, can't beat a set of 19's :thumbsup:

    Those in the link would look good on either colour but great on Ibis.

    The 18s are supposed to be a better ride but 19s do look better if the cars lowered too! All personal choice.

    Not sure i'd want to sell originals for reps though!

    Good look choosing!

    I may just stick with the 18 RS6s then and get them powder coated in black for my Brilliant Black A3 and go with the others on my partners ibis white A3 + do you think they would look better in a gloss finish ?

    it would be the newer ones - i will decide when the car arrives i think - if i do decide to keep them i will most likely powder coat them black and drop my car by around 40mm as i think the above wheels in the link provided will rub if i drop my car by 40mm
