    What rims are you looking at? That's a good fitment, very unlikely it'll rub at all.

    They're good looking rims, I had a set of genuine Gallardo's on my S4. It's just a shame the wheel has now been done to death, but I guess that's the case with a lot of replicas now.

    My only issue would be swapping a good quality OE wheel to a potentially cheap and nasty replica on a performance car... doesn't make sense to me.
