    My Lm's are only on a few months, but the salt has got to them. No sure if a metal polish can bring them up. I was thinking of changing them

    What wheel is best suited to a red a4 in your opinion??

    I think that the A4 suits big alloys 18" @ least + they look good with either a nice deep polished lip ( not good for winter thou ) or an alloy where its got some concave to it.Rotas are good but Expensive, BBS CH are another good one + i'd go for something different if i was you.

    I ran 19" Porsche Cayanne alloys 9 Js front and rear last year on my A3 and i never saw anybody else with them.

    I've got my new alloys sat in the cellar waiting for spring i've gone 19", 9" up front 10" out back mega deep concave @ the rear, but keeping it all a secret for now as i've Never seen another A4 running them !!!

    Metal polish will not work unless you remove the clear coat/lacquer with paint striper or similar, when i bought my LM reps from merseyspeed they asked if I wanted the clear powdercoat option which is diamond tuff. The wheel's are now 2 year's old and have been through one full winter.

    I would keep the wheels and have the lips done by a good powder coater.
