    I unfortunately have to replace my beautiful 18" Oz Superleggera wheels due to stress fractures and am thinking about trying a different look. Any suggestions friends?

    i've always been a fan of 18" rs6 reps.
    I know they have been done to death but the look suits the car.
    Maybe a quick search through german ebay for some inspiration ?

    Gotta love the RS6's, they suit most shapes...But depending on what colour the car is, these look awesome...

    I honestly don't know exactly why they have developed these fractures but I intend to speak to Oz because two out of the four developed them and rewelding aluminum rims is hard to do properly. I definitely looked at those ASA's but the fact that they are manufactured in Korea scares me a little. I think I am going to do the 35th anniversary rims from Oz. Any input would be helpful guys.

    Madkebab has got those wheels, and they look awesome in 19" :)

    Olly if you sold your genuines, im sure you'd have enough for these babies. Deep dish rims suit the rs4 perfectly.....mmmmmmm!

    Don't worry, the eye brows are optional :)

    I haven't the foggiest idea what they are, will have a look around for you. Looks like there is an 'R' badge in the middle though. I could be wrong :s
