    Here are mine mate. They are 8.5"x19" SSW Mesh 2 alloys. They have a graphite grey centre and stainless steel rims. The offset is ET 35. Tyres are 235x35x19. I am actually thinking of selling them so drop me a PM if you are interested (very good price!!).

    yer no probs, H&R seem to have a good reputation along side the likes of eibach so im hoping for good results with a decent level of comfort remaining

    I still think the 'Five Arm' is the best wheel for a B6, especially the GmbH body kitted ones.

    Here's my car with it's OE 18" 'cotton reels' :salute:

    [​IMG]

    The 19's look lovely and most owners don't seem to admit to any ride degradation after fitment (especially with sports suspension). 235/35.19's have the same rolling radius as 235/40.18's so no issues there.

    If I were to go non OE though these 19" Keskin KT4's in 8.5" front & 9.5" rear running staggered tyres of 235/35/19 F & 265/30/19 R would take some beating.

    Shear class :anbet:

    The guy even had some Audi centres machined up for them. So much better than the wheel manufacturers badge or even a 3 pointed star ;)

    Yes you got to post some pics up tomorrow so I can see what these wheels look like, Ive been thinking of these 19's for mine, Brummy Wheelmania doing these for £695 with tyres!!!!

    They do look sweet though from what we can see of your pics.

    Nice one.

    Had the rear drivers door repainted(full thing) to remove several stone chips, the roof touched up, the top half of the rear bumper repainted (local) and the new bottom have painted in full (of course) the spare wheel cleaned down and refurbed and the whole car properly valeted and polished!

    nearly £1000 all in, and all under warrenty

    thats what i got quoted plus a extra £110 for falken 452 tyres in the end i got them down to £670 with the falkens.

    and make sure you get decent replicas like 'PA reps', and some come in a really poor finish.

    Quite like the look of those, got a similar effect as the RS4's mated with A8's.

    Can I ask how much they set you back??

    Yeah mate they were approx £1300 with 205/40/18 toyo proxes, quite like the finish on them, dont have any really good photos of them but they are a titanium finish.
