    Hey guys. Thought I'd best introduce myself to this section, being a TT owner now (finally!). I've been over on the B6 section with my blue A4 for a while:

    But I bought this:

    1.8T 225 Quattro. Brought it last September time, and was royally ripped off! It's been off the road up until now, but it should be back out in the next few weeks.

    Absolutely love the car, but the wheels are (IMO) awful! Just wondered what people think I should swap them for? I like the idea of black CHs (replicas, obviously!), or black Pro Race 1.2s. These are the offending wheels:

    They're nice wheels, and look better in the flesh, but they really don't suit the look that I'm after.

    Thanks in advance for any ideas :)

    You are right mate. Look awful on tt.
    Depends really what kind of look you wanna go for. If sporty then Pro Race would be nice.

    Yeah they really don't suit it. Looks kind of like some sort of beginner level Turkish mob boss thing.

    Yeah I think I'm after a kind of fast-road look, if that makes sense. CHs or Pro Race 1.2s I think would look good. Budget could be an issue though :/

    I like the LM's but gotta be 19s. I've seen one TT in black with gold LM's (it dosnt sound very nice but they looked amazing on it). I think the Rotiform replicas (think Dare do some) look quite nice as well and would work with the bodykit on your TT

    I thought about LMs, but I had them on the A4, can't really go down that route again. And you're right about the 19"s, I think 18"s would look silly. I think I've seen a picture of a black one with gold/bronze LMs actually, and they did look mega.

    The Rotiform idea had crossed my mind, however I don't think they'd really word unless the car was more "stancey", if that makes sense? And that's not the look I'm aiming for. As well as doing a bit of track work every now and then, the roads around here are terrible!

    Spotted this one on my search last night. Can't work out if they're R32 wheels or the ones that came fitted to the TT Sport. Or maybe even Team Dynamics Monzas. I love how they look and how it sits though:

    Sorry if that image belongs to anyone on here BTW, and thanks for the advice and opinions, much appreciated :) .

    Pretty sure theyre not R32s, they could possibly be OZ ones though bit of a tricky angle to tell.

    thought about some RS4s or RS6s?

    Could be right actually, they look like SuperTourismos. Thanks for that :) .

    I did think about RS4s, but they're really played out and, as much as they quite the car, they're not quite interesting enough for me. Never seena TT on RS6s, I might have a hunt now...

    EDIT: The RS6 rims aren't sold on me I'm afraid. Not the look I'm really after. Hmmm...
