Received a package with a replica of the RS4 rotors from China today. I chose a smaller size of 18x8 ET42 as I was going to use them with 225/40/18 winter tyres. The finish is good, better than the current 19" S3 replica that I bought from the same supplier earlier this summer. They are also more concave than I expected (someone said that the new RS3 rotors aren't popular because they aren't concave enough). This is good. The bad is that the diamond cut surface doesn't have a layer of clear coat, so I will have to apply it myself or pay to someone. Another drawback is that they are heavy. They weigh 13.3 kg each. In comparison, the old version of the 18x8 RS3 rotors weighs 12 kg. My current 19" S3 replica weighs 11.9 kg.

I'm not sure. Perhaps they had a matte clear coat finish but I was unable to see it, so clear it was I didn't dare to scratch it. Anyway, a few layers of the ceramic coating will help with cleaning.Those wheels have no clearcoat on painted and diamond cut finish? Are you sure they do not have a matt clearcoat. That is the finish coat on my 19" RS6 replica wheels, same as the OEM finish and I believe that the OEM RS4 rotors are a matt clearcoat finish also, as are the S5 and A6 with that design alloy wheel
The quality is very good. The finish is smooth and wheels were easy to balance. I bought them and got shipped from China. I don't know if it's a reseller or a manufacturer, but my research has shown that our local traders sell exactly the same rims. This is the second set of rims that I bought from them (the first one are my 19" summer alloys). The link to the Audi/VW catalogue section is here: http://wheelshome.com/category/replica/audivw/ But the actual purchase I made via their facebook page where I contacted them via FB messaging and spoke to a guy named Steven. He sent me their latest stock list and quoted a set of rims with shipping to my address. I paid with PayPal (they send a PayPal invoice). They ship with FedEx, it takes approximately 10-14 days. The price for a set of these 18" rims with shipping was $660. No duties or other charges (perhaps they pay all duties via the FedEx themselves).look decent quality. Have you got a link to where u bought them?
Hi, Just bought my first AUDI after driving BMW for 30 years.
It’s a 2017 A3 Black Edition 1.5 TFSI 2 door s line hatchback in Nano grey.
The 18 inch Titanium 10 spoke alloys aren’t doing it for me and I’m looking to upgrade them.
I’d like to go bigger than the stock 18 inch and was wondering what would be the best alloy tyre combo without rubbing issues to fill the arches and without having to alter the s line suspension ?
Thanks for any help
Thanks for the replyHi Saint. All the info you need is in this thread. Biggest wheel to fill the gap in terms of diameter and width is 19x8.5. I have et 45 and that offset puts the rim inline with front arch perfect. Any lower than 45 will poke out up front. . Tyres 235 35 19. But others have got away with 225 or 245.
