    As some of u may know i'm getting rid of my A3 and buying a newer one. I've put a deposite on an 02 plate with 18k miles on the clock for £12000 and want to get some RS4 alloys. what size will be the best to get considering i don't want any arches rubbing etc. I've looked around and 90% of the wheels i've found with tyres are just replicas. Can anyone assist me in the best place to buy some and whether i should be buying genuin ones or not?

    Regards
    Dave

    P.S my car is for sale for £5500 (PM for details)

    Replicas are fine mate if you don't want to pay the premium for oem.

    Saying that there are good deals to be had from guys with TT's changing their wheels for something else. Have a look on the tt-forum site to see if there are any original RSTT's available...

    If you do go for replicas, try rochford tyres. They have a website and many people from this forum have purchased from them...

    I have 18 inch RS4 reps with 225 40 tyres. Think i payed about £550 for mine from wheelbase in Oldham fitted. Thought that was excellent value. They also had the choice of two types, the ones i went for are more like the originals sunken in in the middle. /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/tongue.gif

    I just got the 18" rs4 style alloys for my car from rochford, they came to £571 including Avon ZZ3 tyres and delivery, superb price and they feel lighter than the 17" original rs4 style I replaced too.
