    Unless I can find some genuine anthracite RS4-type wheels at a very good price, im thinking I might just go for some rotor reps (yea, I know, but can't afford new genuine rotors) ...

    Slapping some heavier wheels on is a concern tho ... does anyone know how the weight of genuine 18" rotors compares to something like:

    Buy 18 Inch Riva RTT Alloy Wheels | 18 inch Alloys | Riva Alloys
    or the WSP WSP ITALY Giasone GMP Wheels | WSP ITALY Giasone GMP Alloys | Performance Alloys.com ® The Alloy Wheel Experts ™.

    Anyone have any weight figures for them? Best quality rotor rep maker?

    I don't see the problem with reps. It says £210 per wheel for 18 inch rotors for mine. Il be ordering a set of them in June/July.

    I see a problem if they weigh a ton or fail/warp often

    Im running 18" TTRS reps - I can only compare them to my 17" Standard alloys and 19" S5 Alloys which I bought and didn't fit :sob: But the weight on the TTRS are significantly lighter.

    The reps are lighter? Thought they would all be heavier than any of the standard Audi wheels ...
