    The RS5 replicas are two-piece with hidden hardware, custom made by ADV.1 wheels USA.

    I bet they around 1500 GBP per rim...

    Well, I have never seen these specific wheels on here before and I had the hardest time to find pics of them on anything but a bimmer...

    Just got my new set for the summer, Miro Type111 with Hankook Ventus R-S3 tires. The wheels are 18/8.5", et45 and the tires are 225/40 18s

    TSW Holstens yeah. A mate got these wheels in 20" on a Passat 3BG. Looks great!

    I guess Holstens are "based" on a OEM Audi wheel called Gullideckel (A8):

    I love Audi Monoblocks. Shame they don't come a little wider. (8x18 - I have a set of 7.5x16s for my 9N as it happens).

    Gullideckel is german for manhole cover, it's a nick name :)

    All wheels have been done before though N8. :)

    Especially when trying to find OEM rims, or if you have a taste for monoblocs.
