    I'm after a set of 18's for my dolphin grey a4.
    I like s4 avus, a4 s line and rs4 rep wheels. I don't really want to lower the car to pull off the look as I'll be towing and don't want them to catch the arches while loaded.

    I like the idea of darker wheels but not gloss black, or would silver alone look ok? Don't want it look like a roller skate


    Thanks in advance

    Gun metal tones the whole look down abit, suits it alot better over silver. Assuming their 235/40/18? Offset friendly?

    ET43 with 8mm spacers.

    The silver mirrors and door rings stickers on mine blinged it up more than I realised.

    30mm drop, Eibach springs from DPM Performance. Mine is an SE so I saw the full drop, if you have a Sport the drop will be less.

    And they're 235/40 tyres yes.

    Yeah I have a sport, so less than 30mm would be enough for me, id have to check clearance of wheels while it's loaded before investing, does make it look better though, them springs still comfy for everyday use? The roads are not always the best of surfaces? Speed bumps an issue?

    They're fine yes, the ride is marginally stiffer but never really crashy. It will be interesting to see what effect new shocks makes when I get round to it. I've never had an issue with speed bumps, I don't encounter many and just slow for them.
