Yes they are 18's mate. It is lowered 35mm all round but I think it looks to high at the back, you will see what I mean when I get some decent pictures tomorrow.

Personally i think they look class [H]

However, i don't think they are as subtle as the original RS4s, which seem to be the most well suited (and common as a result) OEM wheel on a mk iv (IMO).

They look somewhat 'busier' and less OEM than the originals - but perhaps my perception of this will change in time.

Great work [Y]

Looks fantastic mate, but, these are directional tyres and this one has been fitted the wrong way...

Yep, definately fitted wrong way, I'd get that sorted quickly mate! Especially if it rains, it can cause you to aquaplane and all sorts of problems. Will also give you loads more road noise and would also make your car fail its MoT believe it or not! My best buddys a tyre fitter that how I know[:)]

They do look gorgeous tho[H]

Yes they are all like that, didn't really notice it before.

I would say they weight less than my old monty 2's, not by much though.

Now I've got some decent wheels (when fitted the right way round! lol), was thinking of fitting an anni kit, what does everyone think?

Got them fitted the right way round now, had to change 2 over. Thanks for the spot guys!

Could someone do me a favour and photochop my wheels onto a silver 3 door anni? I want to see what it would look like.
