    Tyres are due to be renewed but I think the alloys are too. The alloys on my car are the stock 5 spokers and they have seen better days, tyre centre suggested refurbing before putting on new tyres. But I think its time the car got a little facelift and I thinks some new rims are in order. Think I`ll get some opinions on the rims Ive shortlisted so far, only the 3, you know the score, way too many Alloys to choose from :)

    Firstly the Hanzo, maybe over the top.

    Or the Mugellos, slick and stylish.

    Or the Mito KX, which are currently on special offer for a real good price.

    I'd go for the Mugello rims. They'd look **** hot in the A4.

    Mugellos.

    Pretty similar to BBS LM's, so my choice.

    Hmmm now that I finally decided on the Mugello`s (and thank you guys for your opinions). Its all down to the matter of the size, they come in 8,0x18, 9,0x18 or 8,0x17 for the A4. So my question now is will the ride be very harsh on the two 18 sizes or is the 17s just a bit to sensible, lol its such a headache with all the choices. Makes you wanna scream ahhhh lol.

    18's would suit the car far better, the Muggello's are very nice I have had my greedy eye on them too if I decide to keep my B5 and mod it

    Most likely for the 18x8, I want them to fill the arches and tbh I dont do that many miles in the car than I used too so I will allow for some harshness.

    9*18's are going to be tight if dropped. my 8*19's et35 are fighting for room under the arch, both on coilover side and on arch side. taken the paint of my arch!
