    Beautiful. :) Best wheels IMO, look good on anything...

    Have you dented your N/S side skirt or is it just the light?

    No dents in the skirts. I quite like them with the red badges. Thats what they came with anyway. I got them second hand but they are in pretty good condition. Some slight kerbing right on the rim but the pollished lip is still pollished. Had to use 20mm spacers to clear the s4 brakes but they sit nice and right out in the arch but no rubbing.

    Not sure what et. I had a quick look but couldnt see but i put one wheel on the rear and i reckon it will be slightly less than standard or about the same. Need to get some good wheel sealer now to keep them looking fresh.

    Yeah. There is a little bit of stretch on them with the rims being 8.5 wide. I think the previous owner had it like this to prevent rubbing.

    keeping looking at these wheels i like them a lot, however what puts me off is cleaning them so many intricate areas for my liking
