    different in what way?

    perhaps look on ebay and see if anyone selling a set similar to yours and buy one off them? Or ask wheelmani who the old supplier was so you can contact direct and find one of their current sellers.

    Bare in mind Rick, that most alloy shops just want to sell alloys, and refer to the RSTT's as RS4's - same thing in their book! /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smirk.gif

    i still dont agree... OEM wheels were all in 18" and had the groove all the way round for the RSTT and the RS4.

    the replicas have the groove half way round but some really good replicas have the groove all the way round.

    hands up if im wrong but im 95% sure thats the case

    Ahh, I see where you are coming from now Jedi(the force is strong in this one! /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif), the key word here is OEM! Proper RS4 wheels(the genuine article I'm on about here) have the groove that goes down half way on the spokes, these wheels were then used to make the 1st generation of replica RS4 wheels. Then Audi came along with the TT S-Line which came with the 18" RSTT wheels (groove all the way round), which having the same stud pattern as the A3 and were made an optional extra for S3 owners, so anyone with OEM 18" wheels on their S3 should have the groove which goes all the way round(RSTT wheels!).
    Now if you are still with me, there are a few companies out there making replica wheels, some obviously took the pattern from the RS4's and some from the RSTT's, hence we have both types available.
    Got that off my chest then! /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/yes.gif
