    Hi guys, i want to fit some 18" RSTT style alloys to my S3 and wondered if I could have your opinion on the replicas sold by rochford. Firstly, are they good quality, or are they likely to corrode and chip easily. Secondly, what tyres should I get with them - i assume I need to upgrade from the 'premium economy' tyres that come with them?

    Finally, I want the alloys (especially the rear ones) to stick out a bit more than they do so they fill the arch more. What offset would I need to achieve this, or do I have to fit spacers as well?

    Sorry for all the questions /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gif

    hi mate,
    I just bought a set for my girl's TT.
    They are genuine from the factory that makes the originals with the stamp to prove.

    The guy I bought them off has one more set, with tyres ofcourse. (brand new)

    £750 plus shipping which about £20 which is a real bargain if you ask me!

    They sell genuine ones and replicas. It sounds like you bought the genuine ones whereas I believe S2Ki is asking about the replicas.
