    Hello everyone,

    My car came with the following 19" wheels, I'm not sure what they're called or indeed their part number:
    20200818_081204.jpg

    I like them but I prefer the design of these ones: (nice car by the way Nitro_CR)

    If I were to source some of these I'm guessing they would be a straight swap? Would it be advisable to get them realigned/tracked once they're on?

    Cheers for the help.

    You'll find this link pretty useful.

    Your current wheels are known as Rotors; according to the database in the above link, the part number for 19inch ET43 as fitted to the B8 and B8.5 A4 is 8K0 601 025 CN. I had threm as OEM on my S4, but changed them to S5 wheels with ET32 offset, giving a wider stance.

    Thank you for the kind words Sir :) The wheels on mine are the 19" Audi Le Mans wheels that came as part of the Special Edition package.
    They do come up for sale on the trading section sometimes:
    https://www.audi-sport.net/xf/threads/genuine-19-audi-alloys-with-continental-tyres.418727/
    https://www.audi-sport.net/xf/threads/oem-audi-19-lemans-alloys.417761/

    Lots of people like the rotors you currently have fitted so you might have some luck doing a swap with someone or should find it easy enough to sell the rotors and buy some Le Mans :icon thumright: Could be worth putting up a post on the Trading Section offering a swap?
    Hope this helps!

    I fear you won’t find @Nitro_CR ’s LeMans wheels on the guide I posted earlier. That wheel database was from 2014 and if I remember correctly, the Le Mans wheel was dropped in 2012 for the B8.5 facelift. You should be able to find a part number with a bit of searching.

    Thanks for the reply Nitro, appreciate that.

    I may get them refurbed first before asking for a swap. Good to know they're quite desirable. I really do like the LeMans wheels though

    Cheers

    Anything to look out for when buying wheels apart from their general condition. Audi part number on the back? Anything else?

    Cheers.

    I usually try to lye them on a flat surface to check for buckles, check the et number on the back, you want it much the same as yours unless you're going to use spacers or are looking for more poke, wouldn't go any lower that et32 on a nine inch wheel. Check for welds, fillers, damage around the valve area and rim, etc.
    Defo check they are genuine, part numbers are a must.

    I'm sure the A4/S4 guys on here can point you in the right direction with regards to sizes.

    Thanks. I've seen these and spoken to DK. I'd like to stick with 19s though :)

    Cheers.

    I have a set of 20" LeMans for sale if interested, bore is 57.1mm, genuine Audi.
    I bought the wrong bore for my A4 B8, so looking to move these on to recoup money for the next purchase :)

    Hi Rob, thank you but I think 20" would compromise ride comfort a bit too much for me. I appreciate the offer however. Good luck with moving them on.

    Cheers.

    No Problem, I'm having another set of 20's fitted this week, so will be able to let you know what impact they have on comfort/ride

    Hi Rob, how have you found the new wheels?

    I'm still after a set of 19" Le Mans, preferably for a swap with my Rotors.

    I can't find out the ET of mine without taking one of the wheels off. I've tried messing around with the phonecamera but its a no go.

    Would you be interested in a set of 20" v spoke rs4 alloys for your 19inch rotors?[​IMG]

    Wheels are great, fitment is perfectly flush and the Anthracite Grey works really well with the black Audi.
    I have had very slight rub when the car is fully loaded, but only if hitting a bump at speed, so nothing to worry about at all.

    Ride is definitely harder than with the 18s they replaced,, (no surprise there though), but by no means uncomfortable, even in dynamic. Was going to post a pic, but it tells me the file is too large, I have posted one in the show us your Audi type thread, I'll try to post a link.

    Cheers
    Rob
