    Thought id share a few pics of my winter wheels i put on this weekend, they are A5 wheels, wasnt too sure if theyd go on and fit well as they are ET29 and they're 8.5J wide and my car is lowered but they went on like a dream and sit beautifully in the arches, did have to go for a bit of stretch to maintain that clear arch smoothness so put some 225/40s on.

    Far too posh for winter wheels....should be rusty as f*ck....and black steel 16's! hahahaha They look excellent Matey. Here's my studded Goodyear 16" winter jobs on my skanky Italian boots! [​IMG]

    Thanks Bigrich...You must have these on your car up here from 1st November till end of March...it da law!....I live in the armpit of no where so I need the studded verison ( Dubdeck ) to get up the hills and stuff when it's icey. If you are living in the City or Burbs most go for just the standard Winter boot called friction. Must say, after using them....if I lived back in the old country I would never think of driving in the cold months without them....amazing difference. Only hassle is I can't drive outside Denmark, Norway Finland and here with the studded versions. I have always used studded tyres since I moved here and on the A4, the drive is great and a lot quieter than I expected....only negative....not a drop of snow yet.....but only a matter of time up 'ere!
    This was last year to give you an idea...what it's like!

    .......Still love those wheels on your car....think they really suit the car and make it look very tasty.....Nice one.
    Cheers
