    Would look nice with some BBS style wheels
    Have seen some A4s with your number 1 option and I'm not that keen. They'd look good on a more boxier car

    Have you thought about RS4 style, the satin charcoal 18" ones from the final edition b7cabs look really good on a silver car, IMO anyways.

    There is more than one style. No one ever pics correct RS4 style, they usually end up with LeMan style or Q7 style, never correct RS4 which are dished a lot more.

    There are so many different types/styles of wheels out there that suite the b7, where do you start!

    I'm on my 4th set of wheels, I can never make my mind up what I want, I started out with RS4 style ones, looked good but everyone has them, then I went for BBS CHs, again they become a tad common on all VAG cars, then I found some GENUIN OEM A5 sport wheels, they look good for dailys plus the stick out quite abit and are a tad concave and can still maintain the standard 225/40/18 tyres :)

    I now own a set of 3SDMs 0.01s which are well co caved, purely show wheels but look the dogs gonads!

    You could go on forever looking and getting people's opinions, but in the end it's what ever you want and think looks good on your car, be a black sheep and get something you want!

    Number 2 and number 3 would have to be 19" to look nice on your car. Number 1 is ok but you would have to have your car pretty low to pull that off. IMO obviously.

    I vote for # 2 since you have light colour car the dark wheel would look spot on.
    and size wise go for 19''

    Looks best as it is :icon_thumright:


    If I have to vote then 3 as it will be closest to the OEM look, R8 would just look crazy.

    Probably not, for a start is your car on standard height? Or lowered?

    What width are the wheels and what ET are they?

    Dam boy you could fit 20s under there haha, you'll have no trouble with 19" it's the width you'd need to worry about but only if it was decked on it ****, most standard wheels are about 8" wide.

    Just to give you an example, I have mine lowered on coilovers pretty low on A5 sport wheels, they are 18"x8.5" wide, they have a bit of stretch on the tyres which are 225/40/18 and they are ET30 and doesn't rub unless the cars fully loaded at the back and the fronts don't rub unless on full lock, hope this helps and doesn't baffle you brains

    heres mine with 19" TTRS Rotors........mines been lowered on Eibachs too

    They have a really good offset (ET35) to get the right concave look, as some of them are really flat and look rubbish

    There are lads on here that have 20s on pal, no problem, like I say it all depends on width not wheel size and depends on what tyres size you fit, you could have a set of 20" wheels that are 8" wide, and have 225/30/20 tyres on and it won't rub, but you could have 18" wheels that are 10" wide with say 265/35/18 tyre (if they exist, I'm just speculating) and they would probably rub like ****, and it also depends on the ET size, these are all things you need to consider
