    Looking to change my s4 rims (blue avant). I quite fancy the new style RS4 look.
    like these on ebay number: 170221882967,

    Any coments from experiance , anyone got them on a b5??

    I am right to try and get an ofset of 35 to try to avoid needing spacers?

    cheers

    On a B5, not sure TBH mate, I always thought the original Avus style was the best for them but they were 17's wernt they? 18 would be nice same style, B6 always RS6 wheels look better or original Avus again, didnt like the new RS4 wheels that much, personal pref of course.

    I just think thicker spokes look better on the B5-B7

    anyone got them on a b5? i have :)
    they cost £399 for a set of 18" including budget tyres (not bad huh?) - off ebay, the seller was wheelworx in mansfield. note that they're not diamond cut, just sprayed/powder-coated bright silver. not bad for the money, but after having driven on them for a month i would recommend a tyre upgrade as the budget ones supplied are appalling! offset on mine: 42
