    Second hand 19" CH I think are still gonna fetch a min of £1k so might aswell by brand new.
    I prefer the CK those but both lovely alloys

    Damn reading this made me think it was Aythreee's gym thread for a sec.

    Dont worry guys, N8 likes sheep not men, so you're of the hook.

    Im going to limit myself to around 500 pounds for alloys. i dont really want to spend any more than that. I think i may have to go for some rs4 replicas although i know that the quality will not be great.

    Yeah most likely eBay or wheelbase. Get one of the guys to Photoshop some alloys on your car and then decide

    Well they may look a bit ghastly... But they certainly arent the worst ive seen. Just all ive seen on here is BBS everywhere... Im more of an OEM kinda look person. ill probably end up going for diamond cut rs4 reps

    With wheels, it all depends on what you want. Whether your going to lower, whether your going to run stretch etc etc. Whether you want genuine quality oem wheels, aftermarket or shitty replicas.

    I know of a set for sale soon with 235/35/19s for £1k.

    No Ashley they are Genuine 20" S8 wheels.

    So you keep saying Nigel

    You can genuine S8 ones in 19"s, may have a set coming in soon...

    I was told this line from a very young age. Buy Cheap, Buy Twice.
