Don't know about you lot but there seems to be a lot of threads the past while asking

  • What wheels for my sportback?
  • What 19" wheels?
  • 18's or 19s? etc.....
So.....here is the start of the "Rimzzzz" thread, just for N8, post below, I will get the ball rolling:

RS4 replica's on S3

Size: 235/35/19's (122PCD 5 stud / ET35)

I was sold these by Wheelbase under the pretense of them being ET45's, but the rears still rub under damper compression. Turns out the receipt has been ****** to say ET45 and they actually appear to be ET35's based on the cladding paperwork which separated the wheels :no:

Please also be aware that aftermarket rims can have questionable quality finish. I purchased these as I really disliked the OEM rims' but due to spending on mods had a limited budget. I bought unsighted, and already I have had them fully refurbed inside 6 months to get an acceptable quality finish. They have a high number of weights on them to balance them, and they are heavy to start with. If you are considering wheels I strongly suggest you buy branded (e.g. BBS/OZ/OEM wheels) either new (if you are minted), or look for second hand (if you are on a budget). I will use these as I have them, but they will never be great wheels.

Good honest write up Warren,a lot of people that buy reps will not have a bad word said about them.
But you have shown that as with most things in life you get what you pay for.
But if you are on a budget they are fine but not perfect.

Cheers Mate,kept the bentleys on most of the time last year,but its not fair on the misses as she only frets about kerbing them,so now refurbed
gonna just run them now and again.
Yeah went colour coded an had outers stripped and polished for a better shine,but not so easy to keep clean.
Also got full turbo back milltech to go on tonight :icon_thumright:

i completely agree , i have RS4 reps too have had them re finnished last week , they too need lots of weights to balance them , i suppose you get what you pay for but if you add the wheels , tyres and refinish i could have nearly got the bbs ck s i wish i had got !! the RS4 s look very good now in dark grey but i would nt say they are quality :yes:

Are these Merc alloys???? If so would they go straight on?? Did try on an A6 in 19s but rubbed loads.
Think these are what I will go for if I can get some to fit!

I had it sat in an old car pics file from when I considered an A3 about 5 or 6 years back. Do you know of it? Looks like an 8P1 Sport, ....is nice yes?

They wouldn't look right on a 3 door.:) They would suit mine though perfectly. Race you to a set!


On your marks.......:gun2:

(I know they'd suit the 3 door far better!!)

Yep look like merc brabus wheels,they would fit just depends on what offset they are,as to what spacers you would need :icon_thumright:

Cheers Boydie :happy:

Car is currently in winter mode, but will be sold in the summer, replaced by an Ibis S3, so the wheels may change colour soon :ninja:

Are the Super RS 18"? Would love a set :)

Yea they are 18's but you can also get 19's. They are still produced in Japan, but cost about £5k for the rims only.

Best bet is to look at memoryfab or edition38 classified. There was a set on ed38 which have just sold, think they went for £2k
