    As exiting my gym this morning i was walking to my car only to notice a VW Bora (New Shape) sat there with RS4 rims on it...... :wtf:

    The dilution of the Rims has begun! Every man and his dog is now gonna have these rims..... shame as i really like them but wouldn't get them for fear of what is happening, them becoming common.

    If i was an RS4 owner i be pi55ed off that everyone is sticking these rims on there A3/ S3/ A4's etc but now they are appearing on VW's as well.....

    Just waiting for a skoda to go past with them on! Only a matter of time....

    I have an s-line SE and I'll be pissed off if these become 'common'ised

    :(

    I hope this wont lead to me shelling out on a new set of wheels.

    I don't really think it matters, the genuine ones tend to be easy to spot and do look the dogs dangleys IMO.

    I would say this though as I've just amended my TTs order to have the 19" RS4 rather than the TTs specific 19" 5 Spokes.

    I'd rather go for a superior quality, less common aftermarket rim personally....

    I think 15" 3 spokes would look good... :haha: no one else would copy you, ok you won't have any friends but it would be unique lol

    A favourite of the Corsa crowd i believe. TSW made some 'lovely' 3 spokes didn't they?
    Unfortunately, fashion being fashion they will return one day i'm sure...

    I actually really like 3 spokes - i'd get some for the S3 make nice winter rims, probably get them painted some bright colour though.

    Jap style 3 spoke and those on Saabs are passable I'm on about the TSW ones that PNH80 is on about 15" with a nice Ninkong Bobalong 185/65 Remould on it lol!

    Heres some:

    Nice....

    Oh yeah nearly forgot TSW Venoms the wheel where you had to park 6ft from the kerb as the spoke stuck out so far, they were fashionable for about a week! Yet I still see maroon 1.6 Cavaliers with them on, usually with Vauxhall plastered across the windscreen!

    Surely they can't be MB =/ I thought they were pretty rare which is why their priced in the region of £1k.

    Hmm there isn't much choice available nowadays is there

    Does like RS4 Replica's/ RS4 Genuine and BBS CH's are the 'common' choice wheels as the moment.

    Got my eye on a nice set of rims but not going to post anything on them til i get them. Might not be to others tastes but i think they look wicked and haven't seen or heard anyone mention them yet!
