As above, we are looking at getting some new alloys but want to see some in the flesh so to speak.

We fancy a drive out on Saturday so if anyone knows of any retailers in the South East that may be worth a trip please let me know. The more ideas the better as the more we see the better... or more confusing as the case may be! [*-)]

If you are after VW / Audi replicas try Alloy Wheels and Tyres Uk Ltd.

They are a wholesalers based in Paddock Wood in Kent (01892 837770) and supply high quality (Italian made) replica wheels to a lot of shops around the UK. Obviously dealing direct with them gets you better prices!

My A8 reps came from there for ?575 with Kumho 711's fitted.

Highly recommended

Hi Essex

Thanx for info, think will def go and check them out, like the idea of being able to try them out next to the car.

Re London to Southend cruise, are you still meeting up early at Lakeside services for photos?[;)]

Rochford Tyres are pretty good to ...
It may only be a rumour but I have been told Rochford get hold of replica rims from Japan as they are cheaper than the better quality ones from Italy. Apparantly there has been lots of problems with the laquer thickness and cover on the Jap replicas causing premature corroding, especially on the A8's.

Might only be a rumour but if you or anyone is getting replicas its worth finding out if the are made in Italy or Japan.

mine are fine 15 months on.

any wheels will die if they are not looked after.

the secret there is a coat of poorboys wheels sealent to prevent that.

i mean look at the "legendary" BBS Anni rims........they corrode BADLY, and they are genuine BBS

Fair point Essex, just wanted to make people a bit wary as there have been several people on here having problems with the A8's especially.
