well i wasnt going to add my thoughts but after reading another wheel thread by trustie cant make my mind up Rob (should be your username lol)
i must agree with tony just get your currant ones paint black as there fit and look 90% the same as the wolf ones as in a day or two im sure you would have found some diffent alloys you like the look of trying to work out if there will fit lol
i do enjoy reading your posts Rob id love to be a fly on the wall each time you try and fit a new wheel lol. On another point Rob i saw you was looking to off load a few parts was thinking you had found a rs4 ???

Its not just the painting martin, down my part of the country most decent places charge between £80 - £100 a rim for powder or wet paint, the cost of doing that just didn't workout compared to getting 4 new ones for £50 more, also I wanted to move the rims out a shade more so I wanted an ET35 rim aswell , and to be honest the wolf's have a nice sutle concave dish to them which I prefer over the semi convex Rials....so not really a straight forward paint job ....I expect it will workout in the end..lol
I went to look at an RS4 avant (b7) at west London audi recently, really outstanding car with mad low milage and showroom cond , had all the bits anyone could want except a sunroof and I was looking for one with the normal recaro's not the wing backs as found in the majority of them, also at a premium price...decided to carry on looking , its out there somewhere, but yes I have some bits to offload.

I see where your coming from with those prices just for a colour change and the wolf do look good i just dont know how you do it with it not just being a straight fit i would have lost it by now and given up.

have a look at this pic and you'll see my point between the two rims shapes, and also why one fits and one doesn't quite fit...
