    Can anyone point me to a good outlet for RS4 split spoke replica alloys.
    After some 18's or maybe 19's to replace my S-line 17's.
    What width/offset should I go for and what's the recommended tyre size.

    cheers

    I got mine from eBay, the place is wheel worx in Mansfield and for 19" with 45et with tyres they were around £680 if I remember. Here's a pic :) they also take or centre caps which is good.

    Your wheels look sweet. Have you lowered your car or it standard? Also, nice to see a car with imho the right tint shade on their windows.... instead of drug dealer black! :)....Is that a 30%?

    Cheers

    Try Wheels Gateway. Click here. Good prices, great service. I've used them twice and been delighted both times. Most recently, I got a set of 18inch RS4 reps, with Falken Tyres, for £725. Delivery in 48 hours.

    I've been looking for a set of these style wheels for a while now but been staying away from reps as the ones I had on my Mk4 weighed so much! How heavy are these reps you guys are running compared to the genuine wheels?

    I ended up buying genuine ones from eBay. Was a long painful process but found that a few people were selling their spare ones.

    so bought one with a genuine Michelin tyre never been out on a car for £200 which I picked up,

    another with a genuine pirelli again never been on a car for £265 incl delivery and finally one which needs a slight refurb as there is some kerbing for £60 .


    ( I had one already) it took me about 2 weeks in total to source them all.

    Thanks mate, yeah it's lowered on Eibach 50/40 springs and the windows are factory privacy tint so the fronts are just clear and the rears were an optional extra on the car.

    I got some BBS CH Reps from BM Auto Sport in Wales (I think): VAG 5x112, BM Autosport Ltd

    He does all sorts of reps and some genuine sets of wheels. Very helpful guy and they offer tyre packages too if you want a package deal.

    I think my 19" BBS CH Reps were £500... (could have been £450 or £550, I forget), and I got tyres separately for £600, so £1100 all in.
