    Just been offered a set of 4 RS6 replicas 18" in immaculate unmarked condition for my 2.5Q avant, 6 months old with 4x Vredstein Ultrac Sessantas 235/40 x 18 all with 6mm+ tread for £400. Seems like an ok price to me even though they're replicas. What does anyone think ?

    tyres are about £100 each so seems good. Just check they aren't bent!

    That's what I thought !
    Any easy way to check without spinning them on the car?

    Just be aware that replicas can be heavy as hell, so be prepared to take a slight hit on performance.

    I think I'd want genuine wheels for that price personally. I'm not saying £400 is a bad price, but if I was paying it I'd rather genuine wheels and perhaps more worm tyres.
