    Just got some wheels I saw advertised in the classified mag this week.
    They are Genuine 18" Audi RS4 Alloys.
    Came of a 2005 Audi A4 S line.
    They didnt come with tyres unfortunatley but I only paid £130 for them, which I think is a good price, what you guys think?

    Specs are 4 x 8J x 18 ET 43 Part numbers are 4E0601025AB.
    They need some attention, 2 wheels have small but a little deep gouges in them not to big but needs attention. The other 2 wheels have minor kerb damage but its mostly surface scraping.
    They came with the centre caps (bonus!).

    They look like these but of course not in such good condition lol.

    I couldnt find the part numbers anywhere on the insidee rim while I was looking at them and the guy didnt know where to look either so I told him id take the gamble and if they didnt fit I would sell them on again.
    It wasnt till I got home and took of the centre cap for a little nosey that I noticed the fitment size.

    So what you guys think of the price + the style + will this size fit my car ok?

    My birthdays coming up soon so if anyone asks what I want I will say buy me a tyre fella LMAO.

    Just hope they are suitable for the bloody car :scared2:

    Cheers,
    Mac.

    At ET43, they'll fit your car fine.

    They're not RS4 wheels though - RS4 wheels are 8.5"x18" ET 20.

    You could get them refurbed and sell them on ebay – you'll probably get around £500 as they are genuine. I've seen a set of these on ebay with quality tyres at £1200!!! :w00t:

    Sounds like you got a complete bargain mate. A few years ago I got 17" Skoda wheels that were only 3 months old complete with good tires for £300! Bought them off a tire fitter who fitted and balanced them for free too. I grinned a lot that day :happy: .

    Cool id be very interested in that if the price is is right.
    Pm me more details m8.


    Well I didnt mean they are straight of an RS4 but thats the name they are known by = RS4 style wheels (old style) Google it. Good to know that they will be a good fit cheers !


    OMFG wow didnt realise they went for that much on Ebay.

    Lol great minds think alike . I had thought about selling them and came to the exact same conclusion as you did. There arent many A4s with these wheels around my way as most people I know have opted for S4 wheels which around here are the mainstay of the A4 modders making S4 wheels very common tbh.
    so I will prob get get some admirers and possibly people might offer to buy them off me for good money. But I just got a rotary tool from argus so I when I get a few hours I will do a wheel a day and then perhaps relaquer them. I will first read up big time on all about refurbing before I even touch the wheels.
    What kind of filler is reccomeded for audi allloys and any reccomends on laquers?

    Cheers Lads :icon_thumright:
