    Bought a set of rs4 alloys came today which are sh*t quality on these were terrible cost me £650.00 Sending them back for a full refund tomorrow.

    Found a set of alloys which i think are nice.
    Just wondering what you guys think? There second hand two months old they were on the golf in the photos. But you reckon they will look good on my lava grey a3? And not chavy? Or you think there too aftermarket and boy racer type?

    I think there horrible personally.. But thats me..

    £1000 is enough to get yourself a lovely set of wheels, i'd dont rush into it otherwise your just throwing money away..

    I have my wheels for sale :)

    Black wheels would look mean as hell on there!! IMO anyways..

    I would go for something a little more sporty looking than the bling wheels like you posted..

    I'm with you guys on this one,they look ok on the Golf,although chavvy...
    and defo wouldn't suit the A3.

    Shame about the RS4's though,i had some 18" on my previous A3, i think they were 100 notes/corner,brand new replicas from a company in Ireland. Quality was spot on!

    Thanks for that l6on...I thought they looked good on the golf but wasnt sure if they look as nice on my a3. Yes my a3 deserves better and i dont really want to ruin the look by putting some alloys on.

    lol got any takers jamie? And do you mean ponty in wales?

    thanks for that mitch...jonny selling them lol

    My friend today in work gonna send me a email with some different style black rims on my a3 including yours jonny. So will let you know


    Thanks for that...I thought they look really nice on the golf but i couldnt picture my a3 with them on and then thought i'd probably get htem and not like them so thought i'd ask what you lot think first lol....Yeah i was looking forward to having them on my car but the quailty was terrible they seemed really weak and faint colour. I supoose could have a look on another website for rs4 alloys.

    Thanks for that nigel...No need to be sorry lol i couldnt picture them any way on a a3 just thought they do look good on the golf. How the car mods working out?

    good point will have a look now..Found some nice bbs ch reps 18' they look good just about quailty now. Dont really fancy getting another pair of reps and they being sh*t like the rs4 ones.

    We've got people who have been running them for 2 years with no problems. Only reps we do as they're the only reps we trust.

    Not keen at all mate, sorry. For a grand you can get some lovely quality wheels. Go for something with that german isometric look about them, nothing too curvy or they just look wrong.

    Sites like www.swtyres.co.uk have a massive library to look at with a good gallery to view various styles.

    Im far from being a wheel expert but I dont like them rims.
    cant imagine them looking good on anything?
    Definately a HALFORDS special.

    I would stick to tried and tested (and nice) stuff such as RS4s/BBS CH/and BBS `crosswire`style and even CKs which Im slowly warming to.

    cheers
    Paul

    I thought he sold them other day, they are lovely wheels but expensive, not to say not worth, I'd love them but not for that price, only got about 6-800 which is nowhere near what he wants, but they stunning wheels & nice gunmetal colour or do they call it anthracite??

    benskin07 - there's a guy on another forum who re-furbs and sells BBS RC's. There's a choice of finishes. Sells them for £575 inc del I think. The only downside (for you anyway) is that I think you'll need adaptors.

    If you want, I can PM you the link?

    PM sent.

    If you want some wheels photoshopping on, post a pic of your car and the wheels you want chopping on. I'll have a go if / when I get some spare time.
