    So the sun was out and it was down to my local tyre fitters chaps to get a tyre swap over onto the new rims and I think the old bus looks cracking .
    Certainly freshened up the old girl with the new alloys.
    No issue with fitting either this time round, fronts are a very snug fit , but hey that's all that counts .
    No camber adjustments needed so job done.
    A few rubbish picks on the ways home so you'll have to excuse the dirty car,and I must say the lighter rims do make the car handle much better up front, really spot on and responsive.

    anyway, pics below.

    I did see it stamped on the rim but overlooked making a note of it, but very light for a 19" 8.5j rim.
    I think its on their web page aswell, anyway they are Sonic HS .
    here is a link to them in specific.

    Our avants look so smart in black, especially in good nick like yours! Have you lowered yours? Springs or coilovers? I could do with slightly adjusting the way mine sits as its a little high at the front.

    Yep , black is a great colour for avants and allways looks dirty ten minutes after washing it..lol , but then all the colours look great on avants…..avants are brill full stop.....

    Currently running Bilstein B8 dampers with H&R 45 drop spring all round and it does sit nice, low , but not too low.
    S4 door blades also make the car look lower for some reason, maybe because they are a lot wider ….anyway works for me chap.

    have a good one.
