just put some 225/40's on em, haven't had em polished yet, my polisher is flat out, was going to put 215/40's on but wanted some comfort!, r32 front bumper, anni rear, anni spoiler and skirts next......

my local car supermarket has just taken an A8 in part ex, and has got a set of these on, i asked if they would sell the wheels, they said they were putting new replica rs4's and if i paid for the fitting of the tyres i could have em! so........... i'm looking for a black passat estate b5 to put em on!

They look lie OE Audi A8 alloys so are 5x112 therefore requiring hub adapters. IIRC there was an add in golf+ a month or so ago about a company that have started making polished replicas that bolt straight on

thanks for the comments guys,they are a8 monoblock classics i believe (i'm sure someone will correct me if i'm wrong!), tsw have started making "reps" but look similar  (as in they are silver and round!) but no where near the same!

Very nice,though the angle of the picture makes the rear wheel look like a 15".

Then it could be the sunday morning syndrome.

i suppose i could of put 215/40's on it and coilovers but tbh this is my town runaround, so needs to be practical, will lower it more "visually" with some oe skirts and r32 bumper very soon.

so what suspension set up are you running at the moment, as your car is already looking flat and low enough in my opinion.

cheers john, tbh i think so too, it's only a 25-30mm g&m spring kit from elite, was slightly pricey for springs at ?110, but the ride is very good, and the car is on it's 6th set of wheels, everything from 16"-19", never rubs, no driveshaft clearance probs, and can carry 5 with a boot full too, like i said i fancy a few subtle body mods, but i might start by colour coding the splitters to make the silver some down that bit more to make it seem closer, just a bit worried it might just look like i've had it painted and only masked the windows up! and i'm worried about flaking. we'll see, it's all about the evoultion, i don't want to do it all overnight, cos i'll sell it once it's done, i always do! (and i've already got 6 other cars too!)

Can any wheel be polished up like this, and if you do it does it last or is it constant polishing. Like the ones on the Bolf, just waiting for some 17" TT style rims to arrive and fancied doing something nice to them??
