    A friend has these on a mk4 golf and says there genuine VW/Audi wheels?

    Any ideas if they are, he says there from a TT?

    They dont look it to me....

    I think they are called Nouvolari, or however you spell the damn thing!

    Voorhees has them on his too!

    +1, but they dont look quite right to be genuine...I may be wrong though.

    As has been said, whip one off and have a look at the inner face.

    If they are genuine they will be 5 x 112 PCD and not 5 x 100 PCD... he will have used PCD adaptors to fit them

    They are the same that Voorhees has and i'm 99% sure VAG never ever produced them so they aren't OEM.

    Nuvolari's, definitely replicas, they are a design from the Audi Nuvolari concept.

    I've just been over to Audi Hatfield and they have a brand new A4 in their showroom with a 5 spoke version of the Nuvolari so maybe they will produce an 8 or 9 spoke version at some point.
