    Do a search for RS4 on ebay for the best deals, there's a place that does them in Bromsgrove, which is down the road from Worcester, think they're called LTC tyres or something, and pay the extra for a decent set of tyres, you won't regret it. /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/beerchug.gif

    Thanks for the advice guys. i just had a look and i think they would look superb on an A3/S3 but i only just spent £700 on the older style RS4's i've got on now... /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/frown.gif

    They look great in the pic' for sure BUT the rep's are only 18" AFAIK and don't have the same dish as the OE RS4 19" wheels. IMO the rep's look a bit 'flat'...........

    The reps look terrible IMO... I dont like them. I was considering getting them for the v8 S4 I was considering buying. The OE wheels though... WOW - and that photo shop looks the nuts! Love the colour too!

    I've got some 18inch new RS4 reps sat in my garage waiting for the weather to get better. If I get time at the weekend I could put a couple on and take a piccie for you.

    Dunno... something doesn't look quite right about them on Stevie's Pink A3, although the look slightly better on that silver S3.

    Here you go, some piccies taken this afternoon. Unfortunately the front tyre was almost flat, but you get the idea....

    Actually lookquite good on the S3, seem to suit it more than an A3. Those Yoko's you have seem quite slick, i dont think grip is an issue for you but wear rate im not so sure

    jcs - the wheels do look good actually... maybe could do with spacing out a wee bit to fill the arches?

    Yeah, might have a go with spacers. How wide can I go - they are 8x18 with an offset of 35mm?

    hmm.. they look good on the silver and noggy s3 but on that pink a3 they looked a bit dodgy. I still think you need big brakes to show off with those wheels.

    Jcs, did you need spacers to clear your Brembo calipers with the new wheels?

    No spacers at the moment - there are a couple of mm's clearance. Not actually driven the car with them on, but I'm assuming that is enough. Considering spacers all the same to fill out the arches a bit more.

    They look good to me, obviously it helps that youve got a nice set of brakes to show off behind them. /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/cool.gif
