    Just in case anyone has wondered what an A4 looks like on the wheels in the title... :eyebrows:

    Not the most fashionable of rims, but I love 'em! :o.k:

    And before you ask - no rubbing! :icon_thumright:

    Cheers fella - I've always liked this style since the mk2 16v Golf days - these where the ultimate OEM look in my mind, way out of my league back then though!
    They need a refurb at some point, thinking about getting the centres done gold for the proper retro racer look.

    Na I would not go gold I think you would regret it.

    I would go for a titanium silver or a darker colour with the polished lips.

    Or you could sell them to me and I would do it and put them on my car!!

    I agree, leave the gold to the subaru imprezas, you could colour code the centers to the colour of your car with a polished dish but ive found if you darken the center of the rim it gives the illusion of the wheel being smaller than they are, looks well though, where abouts in leeds are you, Jim

    Thanks for your comments guys. Re: the gold centres, my girlfriend said the same about the Scooby problem! Pity, I still like the idea, but I'd hate to be seen as a closet Ricer!

    Also considered the colour-coding option - not too sure:

    Don't get me wrong, love them as they are, just thinking about when refurb time comes (a while yet).

    For the Leeds locals, I'm just up the hill from the JCT600 Porsche dealer. :thumbsup:

    TBH i think the gold and polished lip looks ok. But i do agree that gold wheels are for scoobies and chavs.

    Nice shiniey silver colour. Or a gun metal grey like the RS6+ but with polished lips.
