    well after going from std S3 avus wheels to 18 inch rstt`s ( only 6 months ago) im swapping again.

    The new wheels are going to be 19inch sportecs.

    so what do people think will I like the wheels and suffer with the ride or will all be fine ????? really would have liked 18 inch versuions but these came up at the right price.

    The rstt`s were reps and tbh ive found the quality to be v poor and take some right cleaning even though they are kept well polished. The brake dust just stains them straight away.

    I love your alloys, but your brakes look stunning.

    Standard brakes and even Brembos look ***** under 19" wheels.

    For the price of Sportecs, I'd have chosen a nice set of BBS instead.
