    nowt special if im honest... doesnt have the wow factor for me... id stick with the alloys you have over those. No offence but it seems like you wana throw ur money away! What not pick up a nice set of rs4's 2nd hand, refurb them and powder coat them. Would look mint on your car with the yellow paint and tints! Hope i dont offend ya with that comment.

    What the hell does 'kriss' mean?

    Ed, dont get 19"s unless you want to destroy the handling. With all that power you need as many ways of staying on the road as possible :)

    they will look pretty cool, just choose the right size, 19's will destroy your handling!!!!!!!!!!

    chris seems to think 19" still handle pretty well! as said above they only come in 19"! The only other wheel i was looking at was the NEW RS4 wheels not sure how good they would look tho! Will these MTM wheels be light?

    The MTM wheels are forged items, so will be light weight Ed.

    Dont like them , I am not a fan of polished wheels though!


    Why not try some nice BBS 2 piece splits? Classy wheel, not too heavy, easy to paint and change colour if you want, BBS (just belong with VAG cars IMO) and if you avoid the obvious ones, you can get a real unusual look!

    2 piece BBS RW wheels anyone.....??? 8.5x18 too so no messing with spacers! p

    Even the one piece look real nice and different too! the scallopped centres look cool!l!
