    Hi guys,
    Need some ideas for black wheels.
    Car is a standard 2008 ibis white S3.
    Quite like the idea of a white/chrome outline but open to alternative suggestion
    Cheers

    Should be ok. What width are they? 7.5 to 8.5 should be fine with that offset.

    Hi

    I don't know much about alloys except replicas are heavy, but I want some that look like the BBS CH-R that cost around 1900 on ebay, don't want to spend that much. can anyone direct me to any good alloys for around 650-950 - for example are VMR's good? or Rotiform? or what does everyone recommend Thanks

    well i know bbs are aluminium alloys, went onto VMR don't know if you've heard of them but they do aluminium alloys.. just want something that wont affect performance massively and look brilliant in black.. these are the VMR V710 thinking matte black to fit on my all black a3

    to be honest i don't have a clue.. just simply want some in a black or matte black or the titanium grey colour.. i found some on eBay VMR V710's, went on vmr's website & they do aluminium alloys & bbs use aluminium so i'm guessing that's a good thing? & i found them going for $799 thats like 500quid.. i love the bbs ch style alloys... if not are the speedline turini's good? thanks again

    Speedline Turini's are lightweight. Yes but shipping & tax will amount to about £550.

    VMR v708s would be my choice. They look quite similar to the OEM rs4 style wheels to the untrained eye :ninja:

    In your opinion which ones should i go for?

    Speedline turini's - 17" with tyres £988.00 is that a good price?
    Or
    VMR 710 - 17' $799 £505 + tax + shipping would be like £1000? without tyres
