    Im going to replace my alloys on my 2004 1.8T A4

    Now i was kinda settled on the RS4's untill i seen James0808 set of carlsson's

    So im still trying to decide, also i cant decide between 18 or 19 inch, anybody any pics of an A4 with these sizes of RS4's on ?, do the 19's look too big?, dont wanna look like ive been pimped....lol

    I have also read that w 19's its a harsh ride and that sometimes it can even make the cd player jump.

    Any pics or advice will be appreciated

    Get the 19's,i didn't notice any difference to the ride quality from the 18's and i think 18's look small on the A4.As for the style its your choice.

    I have RS4 18s and I think they're fine, but would agree the 19s would fill the arches better.
    How much more expensive are the wheels/tyres? Not a great deal more I'd guess.
    I've heard 19s can tramline a bit more than 18s, but wouldn't imagine it would be too drastic - guess it's the additional rubber on the tarmac (contact area)?

    Am more than happy with the 18s though...
