    Ok, so my OEM C0Z are getting fitted with Michelin Alpins for our winter escapes.

    I'm considering a set of BBS CHR 19" alloys with Michelin Pilot Supers for summer use.

    what other wheel should I consider in 19" form ?

    TIA !

    Awesome gti are the only uk dealer. You may have to wait a few weeks for them to be imported but well worth it.

    I went with BBS XA's as they didn't stray too far in style from the originals, I uploaded some pics in the S3 tuning thread

    The chr is too safe a choice perhaps.

    HRE do some nice wheels that generally suit most Audis.

    RS6 reps doing it for me, the BBS's have been a cult wheel since I was driving mark 2 Golf GTi 16v back in the early 90's. I think maybe I've just seen too many. That said the XA's are refreshingly different for a BBS.

    I like the OEM 18" on the hatch! but would prefer it as a 19.

    I don't think the light wheels (like the Team Dynamic Pro Race 1.2 @ 10kg) would look prestige enough on the 8V, but they don't half save some weight and improve handling.

    Choices choices.

    This is exactly why im going neuspeed, ive seen enough BBS wheels to last a life time, the nuespeeds look prestige enough and they only weigh (18") 8.6kg.... WIN WIN WIN!

    19" are 21lbs

    How about these? Saw them at the autosport show and thought they'd really suit the S3.

    This is an Audi forum.....:racer:

    The Team Dynamics are too cheap fir my liking.

    I would consider a set of OEM Titanium multispokes if Geefunk is selling......

    It's owned by the VW group anyway, so that's a dispensation for you!

    I'd keep the original wheels and put them back on when it goes back to standard to sell.

    Anyone on here ordered from LD Prestige before who doesn't live in France? I've been reaching out to them through email and Facebook about a set of the RS6 C7 reps that I would like to buy, but getting no response from them. I need them shipped to Oz.

    I'm sure there are UK based retailers for RS6 C7 reps who charge way less than LD.

    Check eBay maybe?

    Man, I spent hours searching last night and came up with nothing, other than another website from France who I think is the same company as LD.

    Nice! Would be sorely tempted by these if I were to ever get an S3 Sb in daytona grey in future. Look great on monsoon car
