    Hello All, This has been my first post for quite some time.

    Just put my Audi through another MOT, with one advisory.

    My Rs4 rear rim was cracked, I dont know how this happened, but i changed it and continued with the MOT and she flew through.

    I decided im going to sell the 3 good RS4s and scrap the cracked one.

    To replace them Im looking for Porsce Cup 3 Twists as I love the look of them so much.

    Does anyone know where I can get the replicas ( 18x8 ) ones?

    Ive been looking everywhere.

    Or does anyone know if the genuine front 18x7.5 and rear 18x10 will fit my A3 with or without modifications?

    As it is already lowered 35mm on spax springs.

    Thanks in advance.

    Ryan

    As its sometime 4x4 you'll have to adjust the tyres so that the rolling radius is the same front and back or it will bugger the transfer box and prob mess with the haldex

    Ryans car is a FWD A3 Mike, so that's not an issue.

    I'd forget about the tens on the back Ryan, they'll be FAR too wide, and it'll look so unbalanced. I'm not even sure you'd get tens in without massive spacers to clear the shock, then they'd stick out so far it'd look silly. PLus of course you'd need PCD adaptors to fit the audi hubs.

    They're replica wheels. They have been made to fit other types of vehicles.

    Looking at that website mike posted I'd be looking at the 8.5 x 18's and running adaptors :)

    They do look great, I hunted high and low for a set when I as buying new rims...wish I'd have found them!

    Not a fan of sticking other manfacturers wheels on my cars if I'm honest, but I agree they are nice wheels.

    Try this place, I used to use it a lot, and they sell lots of Porker wheels including reps.

    FRONT: 8.5 x 19" (ET 57)
    REAR: or 9.5 x 19" (ET 46)

    Does anyone know if these would fit my car?
    And what spacers id need to match the offset?

    Thanks Ryan

    My wheels are no obsolete, you can't get them anymore, as MilleMiglia went bust a few years back! Rear brake disks are ECS stage 1's 308mm.
