    Well, I still haven't even fitted my 20" Q7 wheels, but I'm already on the hunt for other options. Only problem is that I've not found a wheel that jumps out as being THE wheel I want. There are a few options available... what are people's thoughts? I'd rather stick with OEM but if BBS are ok, are OZ ok too, or maybe a shade too "aftermarket", or justified by the weight savings? So many questions.

    First off, these are the ones going on next month:

    Obvious alternative is C6 RS6s, probably anthracite too
    [​IMG]

    Or my current favourite OEM choice - B8 RS4 V-spokes
    [​IMG]

    BBS 20" CKs (only set in the UK, apparently) that'd be redone silver
    [​IMG]

    Or the outsider, and most "aftermarket" I'd consider - OZ Superleggera III Forged (can't find them on a B7)
    [​IMG]

    Thoughts?

    Thanks
    Martin

    BBS for looks or SuperLeggeras for me. If I was going 20" I'd want as light a wheel as possible which points at the Oz's.

    How about the BBS RX-R Marty? Very nice they are too.

    If they're the ones that are like the Rotiform BLQs, I'm not a fan.

    I like the 911 Turbo S wheels, sort of a TSW Hockenheim R design, not a million miles from Mk4 Golf 25th Anni BBSs... but haven't seen anything in 20" and don't know the OEM name of them.

    I actually like a few Porsche wheels - the 5x flat spokes with a 1/4 twist, the 5x V-spoke style off the GT3, the 10-spoke ones that tuck in just at the rim... why are there so many wheels I want!?!?!

    The BBS are off to an early lead, but after another afternoon of browsing... I'm thinking 20" CH-Rs with a nice curve are the preferable BBS. Or maybe the (to me, anyway) as yet unseen RI-D?

    CH-Rs (on an S5)

    or RI-D

    That's without even going into AMGs, or Jag wheels... there are too many options. I may have to give up and just stick with the ones I already have :keule:

    RS6 alloys without doubt, best looking alloys ever! BBS on an RS4 , in my own opinion obv, looks just horrible. a car of that calibre does not warrant BBS in any way...they are for A3s and thats it!!!

    Those RS6 alloys don't suit the B7 RS4 at all IMHO. :sm4: I'm fancying a change actually as my wheels have been on for well over 3 years now. Like most new things, they were pretty cool for a while until everyone else started fitting them, or cheap lookalike imitations, on to their cars. They are a good quality wheel though. I'm quite fancying a set of HRE's but the price is pretty scary; you get what you pay for I suppose.

    A car of that calibre doesn't warrant BBS wheels in any way and they are only for A3's and that it??!!! How on earth doesn't an RS4 warrant a set of BBS rims?? BBS are one of the best and most established wheel makers in the world!

    B8 RS4 Vs for me.. second choice would be the C6 RS6s, but i think they only work on an Avant

    Well after the fuss of getting these bloomin' things on the car, I think next year I'll be looking at 5x112 options exclusively and so far I'm leaning towards CH-Rs for sure. Anyway... pics would follow, but I'm going to save them for the meet on Saturday (pics from the meet and from today, getting them fitted). Well OK, maybe just one, since you've all been good.

    I suppose I should stick up a full pic since I didn't make it down to Krispy Kreme before everyone had gone home.

    KW coilover springs being fitted as we speak to bring the front end down in-line with the rear.
