Hi,

I am looking to purchase some 19" Rotors for my B8 with centre caps - most likely reps as the budget but where do people purchase them from? I have looked on Ebay and found the only decent ones on the link below - but the seller seems a little unreliable and hasn't answered 2 emails I have sent.

http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/4x-Brand-...810858?hash=item1c67a2dcaa:g:uR4AAOSwDNdV5Zox

So my question is at a budget of around £500 where can I locate some 19" Rotor reps with Audi centre caps?

I bought 20" Rotas from him I rang 1st to make sure he had them in stock and he did so clicked and bought, the wheels arrived a couple of days after no problem, they didn't send the Audi centre caps they sent some cheap ones, I asked him about the caps saying it was miss leading as the Audi caps were in the pics, and he agreed to send some. Waited for a few days and nothing so I opened a dispute, he then questioned why I'd done it and said he would send another set out and they arrived the next day,
The 1st set never turned up so don't know if he actually sent them or not,
I usually buy from Cm wheels they cost a little more but at least you know where you are with them

Thanks for your advice @Dsport , sounds like a bit of a nightmare with them then.

I have looked on CM Wheels and can only find the Rotors in ET25 with 19" which is alot of wheel poke for a B8! was looking for around the ET35 mark as this would sit flush with the car on 255/35 tyres and no drop - for the time being anyways

How was the quality of the actual wheel? Any problems with them?

I think that maybe you are discovering that in the main, repo versions of wheels are available for cars that did not have them as a factory fit option from Audi, so that tends to mean "wrong" ET for B8 A4. Wheel centre caps, you do realise that genuine Audi centre caps for four wheels will cost the thick end of £100?

There are other options maybe not rotors or rotor copies.
Diamond cut faces on any wheels are a liability from the point of kerbing the wheels or even just small marks in the lacquer will cause corrosion .
On cheaper after market wheels the finishes aren't as durable.
Tyreleader do some great deals on quality German made wheels that are light weight and meet all the TUV, JWL specs.

The quality of the wheel is good has a nice finish, I've had them on a few months now no signs of buckling and the diamond finish still looks as it did when new, good value for the Money
