    Evening folks

    I'm in need of a full refurb on all four of my S3 (58 plate 8P3) alloy wheels and was wondering if anyone knows of a reputable refurbisher in the Manchester/Stockport /Cheshire area?

    Cheers

    So sorry ASN, my excitement turned to inevitable disappointment this morning when going to look at the "genuine" Golf / Scirocco R wheels. The center caps told me all I needed to know.....

    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]

    Anyway, a good price was agreed and I decided id take them none the less. They look pretty smart and the tyres are 1 Mitchelin, 1 Conti and 2 Khumo all with plenty of tread. Only 2 scuffs, the worst being in the above photo.

    Here they are on my car. Before I get slated, its not an A3 / Q7 concept hybrid. Its going on sportlines in the summer.

    [​IMG]

    So now I have TWO sets of reps. Plan is ill swap the tyres off my old RS4 reps as these are brand new, and keep the Golf R's for now.

    [​IMG]

    Not the win I was expecting but i'm happy them.

    Now I've got to take off the bumper to fix a leaky water bottle then its off to the hospital to be treated for hypothermia. :icon_thumright:

    take it easy noob. peeps around here will answer. it just take alittle time. I am not a fan of reps but looking at that picture they appear to be HRE P40 reps and bmw posers love them. they do look good but the originals are the way to go. VMR wheels makes em. The original 19 in two tone is one of my favorites

    Hi guys, looking for a bit of info on a set of wheels I''ve picked up. I've got an 09 plate 1.9tdi sport and I've purchased some BBS LM reps, and the specs are 5x112 et 45 9J all round. Planning on running 225 40 18 tyres all round, should these be a good fit with no rubbing?
    Any info would be great
    Cheers, Jamie

    depending on how low you are. if you needed more clearance, you can safely go with 215/40/18 if you wanted

    cheers mate, only at standard height at the moment but was considering just lowering on springs. Using it as a daily so don't want it to be stupidly low so hoping I should be fine as I am

    Hi All!

    I have 18''x8,5'' ET47 Ronals and I'm looking tyres for them.
    Does 235/45/18'' tyres fit to 2007 3.2l Quattro (stock suspension) with out rubbing or is it a hopeless task?
    And if these don't fit I guess that the optimal specs would be 225/40?

    Only reason to consider these tyre dimensions are that i could get them dirt cheap :)

    Thanks in advance!

    Anyone got any pics and specs of bbs LM reps on a sportback? not sure on 19/18 or offset, deffinately wanting a staggered set as love the tucked front and little poke from the rears. Id love ledgit LM's however a good set of reps will do for now.

    Boydie that look's really nice! Are you running any spacers and are you lowered at all?

    Thanks

    Thanks very much - yeah lowered 25mm on H&R springs

    No spacers yet but thinking of 10mm up front maybe but the wheels are ET50 and sit pretty flush as it is.
