    They look good but had been done to death about 9 months ago but they're still going strong.

    My Passat goes through a set of rubber every 12 months and 15k miles or so, and it's more cost effective to get new rims with new rubber, and sell the old ones on bud. :moa:

    I think the RS4 v2's aren't as common so you can get away with those...

    Really? I see them all over, you can get them as a fctory option on just about every car in the range, even huge ones for the Q7.

    Am I missing something (again .. groan) or are 'Genuine RS4 Alloys' the 19inch 7 spokes fitted to RS4's and an option on TT's. There seem to be a lot of 18in and 'lookie likies' around at present!
    Cheers

    Genuine RS4's(B5) are 18X8.5 made of magnesium and prone to buckling. RS4(B7) are the 19" 7 spokes you are referring to, and only available in 18" as an option of course, on lesser models like the TT and A3(I think?) Alos, I think they might be available in 20" fitted onto high spec Q7's.

    It is the 19" RS4's that are an option on current TT's . I think the current 18 inch versions are 'lookie likies' and have never appeared on an RS4 (B5 or B7).

    Dunno about 19's,I like the looke of them but the weight and handling issues make me unsure,my wheels are heavy enough with spacers and they are only 18's
    Keeping with Audi wheels has got to be the way even though people say try something different,Audi spend thousands on research,design and styling on these wheels so if people question their integrity then what about the actual vehicle?

    Agree . I would never want to put wheels on an Audi that were not available 'ex factory' on that model. You also face problems with Insurance and resale value.

    I went from 18" Nouvolaris to 19" Mercedes Carlsson reps and the 19's was lighter and looked 100 times better.

    Did they do Sline (badges) pre 2005. Wheel look nice but have you seen the A4 with genuine 20 Spoke 18 in circa Spring 2006?
