    Love the colour and the roof, dont like the wheels at all.

    You look like a drug dealer! a drug dealer who will be in the AA van during the winter.

    That must be the harshest ride ever. Excuse my ignorance, but how do they do that to the wheels? Is the wheel a size bigger than the tyre?

    different look guys , not the normal average b7 u see . all the others u see is on 19s bbs lm or normal average audi wheels. these are something different and summer style . it the stretch look with a better handling with wider rear which is staggered. if u see this ride passing near u your head sure to turn .. Just love it dont hate....

    Maybe in the flesh the wheels look ok, but from those pics it's a no from me mate. Each to their own I suppose.

    for this to sit low without any rub , got to have it stretch and with a round look . much more german effect that normal europe look stale and boring.. this is on another level , you guys would not understand this sort of set up. I can understand what u after the normal wheel tuck inside the arches ,and yes i got that look as well ,but thats my winter look . PLus this ride u looking at is only driven on special occassion .not bang around everyday . PLus these are 20s anyway . Soon to drop in the air bags ...

    Never mind not understanding the set up, I'm having trouble understanding your idea of English.

    Not sure the roof is a fresh look as this was done to death when vinyl wrap started, due to the M3 having the carbon roof. The wheels just look dangerous I take it you won't leave them on when you take the car for an MOT?

    I quite like it tbh. Different design of alloy would look better though and I prefer stepped lips to flat ones but that's just me!

    Not convinced you've improved your handling with that set-up mate - personally i'd avoid all bends and anything over 40 mph :)

    full marks for being different..... but being different doesn't mean it looks good...... most on here have slated your wheels or expressed concern, something a forum is good for is gauging opinion and in this case fella... it looks ****e

    Sorry to burst ya bubble and im sure your a nice kid.... but it just does not look good, no matter what I understand.

    Ok ppl for the ones who hating or not liking the new different look on a b7 who cares . Is not for u to like but for me and u know what at first i was not sure then it grow onto to me and I am
    Liking the look more and more and especially the fat look from the rear damm that **** looks aggressive . But u guys wouldn't understand that because u like the normal Tyres sitting on the rim flat like normal . Plus these wheels are for
    Car show and i am getting alot of love plus when driving ppl turn there head giving me tumbs ups. ppl stop me ask this and that . Thing about me I love a challenge not just being normal and forget the rules and we make the rules as it goes by . As for being safe this is more than safe just as your normal wheel ... Only different these Tyres are stretch . Winter wheels soon to
    Come in . .

    After using google translate to work out what you've said I can put in what I think now!

    I think that stretch on the rears is too much... To me it would look better if the offset was higher so the wheels sat in more and the stretch was less but I like the style of the wheels and your roof looks smart too. Goes really well with the colour of your car.

    I guess the main thing is that you like em as its your car and its certainly different.

    as said above mate were not knocking the wheel style or the fact ur trying to be different its our opinion which were all entitled too n if ur re read some ull actually see positive comments n as for the tyres being safe they can't be mate norm stretch look the beed of the tyre is still seated properly on the rim wiv yours there's a clear gap thas were folks concerns are

    for the ones hating? you have one positive comment out of about 30!! well done for being different BUT the general consensus is that it looks gash! you know when your successful at a restyle when the majority like the look of what you've done...coming on here and saying this bloke at Mcdonalds stopped me and said it looked 'sick' doesn't cut it..... dont give up ya day job

    the best comment was it looks like the top gear railway car!

    seriously, peopl are trying to help you get a grasp of reality - this is starting to feel like telling the poor man on Xfactor that he CANT sing and he thinks he's U2!!! (add your own top male singers at will ;) )

    just seen it and it look awfull
    fronts are ok, rear looks ...well naff really
    roof is good, just ditch the wheels, or get 2 sets of fronts so they actually fit
    just my opinion as thats what you asked for, also they wont last a month without being kerbed and that much stretch really is not good for the handeling

    Would have liked to see a side on pic just to gauge the wheel style against the car more. I take it the rears are 10J wide with 215's on that strech? To be honest I personally think you'll attract the dibble as those wheel rims are outwith the arches which makes them illigal. Other thing I'd point out is after running some Bentley rims for a short time, with a strech, I dammaged one within the first few hours of them on, man I was sick, far too expensive to waste was my thoughts, so wheels came off and sold them on. Somethings just aren't meant to be no matter now good/cool/different. Just my opinion though.

    Love the wheels, would look mint on new C-class, and your roof looks good against the rest of the car.

    What spec tyres are you running at the back? I like stretched tyres, but that looks a little too extreme to me.

    Also, what's the offset on the rear?
