    Don't know about you lot but there seems to be a lot of threads the past while asking

    • What wheels for my sportback?
    • What 19" wheels?
    • 18's or 19s? etc.....
    So.....here is the start of the "Rimzzzz" thread, just for N8, post below, I will get the ball rolling:

    RS4 replica's on S3

    Size: 235/35/19's (122PCD 5 stud / ET35)

    I was sold these by Wheelbase under the pretense of them being ET45's, but the rears still rub under damper compression. Turns out the receipt has been cooked to say ET45 and they actually appear to be ET35's based on the cladding paperwork which separated the wheels :no:

    Please also be aware that aftermarket rims can have questionable quality finish. I purchased these as I really disliked the OEM rims' but due to spending on mods had a limited budget. I bought unsighted, and already I have had them fully refurbed inside 6 months to get an acceptable quality finish. They have a high number of weights on them to balance them, and they are heavy to start with. If you are considering wheels I strongly suggest you buy branded (e.g. BBS/OZ/OEM wheels) either new (if you are minted), or look for second hand (if you are on a budget). I will use these as I have them, but they will never be great wheels.

    Good honest write up Warren,a lot of people that buy reps will not have a bad word said about them.
    But you have shown that as with most things in life you get what you pay for.
    But if you are on a budget they are fine but not perfect.

    i completely agree , i have RS4 reps too have had them re finnished last week , they too need lots of weights to balance them , i suppose you get what you pay for but if you add the wheels , tyres and refinish i could have nearly got the bbs ck s i wish i had got !! the RS4 s look very good now in dark grey but i would nt say they are quality :yes:

    Are these Merc alloys???? If so would they go straight on?? Did try on an A6 in 19s but rubbed loads.
    Think these are what I will go for if I can get some to fit!

    They wouldn't look right on a 3 door.:) They would suit mine though perfectly. Race you to a set!

    Car is currently in winter mode, but will be sold in the summer, replaced by an Ibis S3, so the wheels may change colour soon :ninja:

    Yea they are 18's but you can also get 19's. They are still produced in Japan, but cost about £5k for the rims only.

    Best bet is to look at memoryfab or edition38 classified. There was a set on ed38 which have just sold, think they went for £2k
