    Shame.

    They look almost as "dished" in the middle as genuine RS4 wheels. Where as some aftermarket ones look almost flat faced.

    They do look dished. The best RS4 reps are the ones that mike guy has from Aus

    Hey Blazin, are your reps 'hyper black' or 'hyper silver' from wheelbase?

    Wheelbase told me hyper black is apparently dark silver (not black).

    how come 18's the 19,s look much better they fill the arch nice i went from 18s to 19s , there not that much more expensive you know...

    If you want 18s they will look ok if you drop the car pretty low .....

    Cost mainly and thought they would look ok considering they are a straight swap for the RS6's already on there.

    I sold my rs6 alloys for 400 put 300 to that and got the 19inch wheels but with falcon tires which i really like the grip is great , i didnt want to go for the budget tires they supply as i have kids and just wanted to be sure about safety.

    When i was there getting mine fitted an asain guy came in with a bmw to swap one of his alloys , and one of the tires on the inside that you couldnt see was split pretty bad like a tire defect imagin a blowout at 120 scary stuff so im glad i went with the falcons

    Yea i'm getting the upgraded Toyo tyres which should be ok I guess although obviously not the best. I'm self employed and work is a little slow at the moment so not a lot of spare cash.

    Not really done any lowering of cars before, so thought I would play it safe and just replace the 18's that are already on there with the same size. As long as it looks the same height as before I'll be ok with that.

    you say you got £400 for your RS6's - what condition were they?
    Mine had been refurbed by the previous owner prior to selling, although it wasn't the best of jobs, he then kerbed one slightly and I kerbed another one last week.
