    Just picked up a nice Audi a4 silver b6 avant 130 sport. Unfortunatly the alloys fitted are cheep Halfords ****, I want to put some Audi 17" OE alloys back on it but am not sure what's available? What was fitted as standard?

    From a search I need 17" x 7.5 with a 43et offset???

    I have seen a 5 spoke and a 6 spoke alloys fitted anyone got any pics of these on a silver avant? Which look best?

    Cheers andrew

    Welcome to the forum!

    From 2003 Sport's came with 17" "Star" design wheels like this:

    Pre 2003 came with 16" Trapez as standard.

    Have a look in the pictures sticky for lots of different wheel options.

    Thanks for that appreciated.

    The star design wheels look quite nice. Others I gave found on here are the Kraft alloys. We're these ever fitted to 130 sports? Mmm which to get star designs or Kraft alloys????

    By Kraft wheels do you mean these? Or similar...

    They were (I think) fitted as an option to our cars only, they're fairly few and far between so a lot more exclusive.

    I have these on my tdi sport (avant). Don't really like them and will be getting changed for a set of fat fives in the summer. Probably keep as my winters though.

    I like the 5's, but the 7's are a LOT more exclusive which would probably win it for me if I had to have one or the other.

    They look like 17" RS6 Reps?

    18" versions of them were standard fit on S-Lines.
