    I'm cheesed off with crashy bumpy roads at the moment so I'm going to stick some 17's on to calm the ride down a bit. Not wanting to spend a shed load but I have found a set of S3 Avus rims (all good nick, only one slight scratch) which I can get for £150 (without tyres).

    I'm not clued up on what these fetch normally so would that seem a fair price for them? (it includes centre caps)

    Cheers

    Tom

    Think i've spotted these Tom, is it the set of 5? It's a pretty fair price really, sure you could get a bit off though

    £200-300 with tyres is the going rate Tom, dependant on condition, so it's upto you.

    That price is about right mate, with tyres, an extra £100-£150

    What you going to do with your RS4s??

    I recently sold a set of 4 needing a refurb, but they all had decent Bridgestone tyres and I got £200 which I thought was fair, to be honest I don't think I have seen many sets below £150.

    Tom, RS4s, are they sprayed dark anthra/black?

    If so, could be interested in a swap + cash your way. Avus with new (1000 miles) Pirelli P6000 tyres on. All four are pretty damn good condition, couple of curb marks but for 8 year old wheels they are bloody good.

    Let me know,

    James

    OK mate, I'll have a think.

    Thew wheels are actually top quality powder coat and cost £300 to get done so no shoddy paint here :)

    I'm torn as I do love the way they look, its just the shitty roads making things a bit crashy. :(

    I may just lob the standard 16" sport wheels back on for a bit.
