    Looks good.

    Two things, firstly they're RS6 'style' wheels ;)

    Secondly, are you sure they're ET35? The finished offset doesn't look as low as ET15/20.

    well strangely 3 are copies but 1 is genuine with an offset of ET43 so that wheel is also running an extra 8mm spacer, have no idea why and yep certain the others are ET35

    I did also have a little play with the rear camber to stop the slight rubbing i had so tops are in a little more than they were, Im whipping the rears off again tomorrow so will make 100% that there ET35

    If they're reps then ET35 sounds about right, and I presume they're still 8J? Most ET35 reps I've come across have been 8.5J.

    I must be losing my eye.....!

    if 3 are reps and 1 is genuine won't that cause a problem due to weight being different?

    Well I've owned the car three and a half months and it certainly caused no issues and to be honest i doubt the weight difference will be that substantial to be noticeable, When i next have 2 wheels off I'll weigh them just out of interest.

    Look really smart!

    Think the stance is spot on.

    How do you know they are RS6 rather than RS4? Because they are more concave?

    I have RS6 alloys on my A3 which are 8.5J with no spacers just awaiting coilovers!

    Fair enough. I'm not very up to speed with Audi alloys atm having not been in the BMW to Audi transition long.

    The wheels and tyres really fill the arches nicely. What size spacers did you use?

    looks really good.

    Thanks,

    15mm front and 20mm rear I also fitted new tyres slightly narrower 225 instead of the 235 so it gave me more room to play with spacing wise.

    I considered it as they could do with a refurb and i have some paint at work that would be a perfect colour, so never know i might give it a try

    Just over £90 inc vat from Cambridge TPS might be able to save a bit if you go for none genuine blades

    I had mine done darker, in fact they were done darker than I intended, to the point they're virtually body colour. They look great I think, and I can't really fault it (see the pic further down), but I do sometimes miss the glint of an Avus Silver wheel!
