    hi all,

    well last night i went and picked up a set of wheels. which to day i dropped off for reburbing.

    they don't come with centre caps so wondering if anyone on here knows the size? i have posted on the rs6 forum too as they're rs6 wheels.

    also two tyres are 225/35/19 the other two are 235/35/19. all four tyres are brand new. i assume they should all be the same size?? others wise the awd might be confused right? or is it ok to run a larger circumference on the back than the front?

    this is one of the wheels:

    Thats only 3mm rolling radius difference that will be fine!,and as for the center caps id just go to audi and get new one's take the wheel part number,be around £35 £40!

    yeah i thought about that but theyre reps. cheers for info on the 3mm diff. being ok. is it better to put the 235's on the back? or front?

    im assuming these wheels will sit further in the arch? as they are ET35? might have to get some spacers too. are these ones alright? or to much?

    Are they genuine or replica wheels?

    I guess that a 3.5 mm rolling radius difference is comparable to worn tyres on the front with new tyres on the rear so probably shouldnt be worried about to much.

    ? ET 50 means that the mounting face of the wheel is 50mm outside the centre line of the wheel. ET 0 means that it is bang in the middle

    I don't have these exact wheels, but i just got blank centre caps for my rs4 reps on ebay, then got a friend of mine who does signage and decals etc to make me some audi signs to stick on. been on there 4 months now and been brilliant, can't even tell the difference. i'll try get some pics up later.
