    I need one 5x112 , 7 1/2x17 , et35 , B6 Sport(Ithink) 5 spoke replica rim to replace one of mine that is buckled.
    Does anyone know who makes/supplies these replica rims?

    Dont think I have ever seen replica's for sale though you can often get single gnuine wheels on fleabay.

    I've found someone in Italy that sells them ,but he's reluctant to sell me a single rim ,plus having to translate everything ia a bit of a pain!:)

    I can imagine. If they look like the originals though buying a single from fleabay would be as cheap I'd of thought. Sometimes the reps can be just a slightly different shade though so dont look right. And that can be the case if you got a different brand of replica too so its worth thinking about.

    Mine are et35 & originals seem to be et45, oterwise I'd just go for an original rim/

    The originals are ET45 or at least mine are. Do your rims not have a makers name somewhere??? Either on the back or inside the hub? It may help you track some down.

    No,all of the dimensions but no manufacurer's name.
    They also seem readily available in Russia!(Prestige Audi Positano?)

    You may be in luck then.

    South West Tyres do Audi Prestige replica's and do have some on there website labelled VW Positano which certainly look the same as mine.

    You'll need to give them a bell for fitments etc.
