    They probably wouldn't look quite as in your face if they didn't have low profile tyres forced onto them and were painted silver, not polished.

    Wheels look awesome, but if you haven't lowered your car, forget it!

    I want these for my A6 C5 Avant, pricey, but look good when polished! or a set of 20" Fatfives, as seen on Adamss24's A6.
    I'm more of a OE person though, Not into the aftermarket.

    Gorgeous wheels, currently deciding whether to put them on our Mk5 Golf or the Avant although I would prefer the 0.01's on the Avant.

    I have never heard of any problems with 3SDM wheels except for the chap above. My friend is running the black 0.01's on his S3, a neighbour down the road is running the 0.03's on his Golf, my usual mechanic sold his A4 and kept hold of his 0.01's for his next project, Matt at Stanced UK runs 0.01's on his Astravan. Neither of them have had a problem with them, paintwork is fine, build quality seems fine. It's quite possible that the other chaps mate just had a poor example, I certainly wouldn't right off 3SDM's because of that, at least they put it right even if it took a couple of months.

    Nope not to my taste but its your car so your choice.

    I love 3sdm's but not a fan of these ones!
