    New wheel options for Nogaro B6

    Guest-only advertisement. Register or Log In now!
    I've got a B6 Nogaro, 35% tint and going to be wrapping the roof in gloss black vinyl. Car is on stock suspension currently, and on stock 18" 6spoke Avus. I've done some searching and limited it down to these.

    Options:
    1) Plasti-dip stock wheels matte/gloss black
    2) Plasti-dip stock wheels gunmetal/dark grey
    3) RS4 reps in hyper silver
    4) RS4 reps in gunmetal
    5) RS4 reps in black
    6) VMR 710s in hyper silver
    7) VMR 710s in gunmetal
    8) VMR 710s in black

    Any pics/thoughts would be awesome, esp of recolored Avuses (Avii?). I just put new S-Drives on, and would like to stay on 18s over 19s, but not 100% sold (and no, we don't need 2 sets of wheels/tires in NC :P). Obv plasti-dip is cheap and would allow me to buy other goodies (suspension, catback, etc), so that's a big plus.

    I was going to vote V710s in gunmetal but it is not an option.

    ** edit - voted Dark - not Black though.

    Any reason, or personal preference?

    All accounts on here seem to show dipping being a solid option, at least for a few months (which, for 25$ and a few hours on a weekend isn't bad).

    My vote: None of the above


    You should add that to the poll. ;) And I've never heard of "gunmetal/dark grey" plasti dip. Not that you should do that even if it does exist... I've just never heard of such a thing.

    Have you looked at the new VMR V705? It looks a lot better then the wheels you are thinking of, and not played out either.

    http://www.audizine.com/forum/showth...plasti-dip-ftw!!!

    Its a custom mix Fonzie on the boards makes.

    And since you didn't list it, what would you suggest/vote for?

    @fireman - I don't see a 705 on VMRs site. I see a 715 which looks a lot like an RS4 rep, so I'm assuming that's not what you were referring to since most consider that "played out"

    edit: http://www.velocitymotoring.com/vmr/...oke-concavity/ the VMR705s for those wondering. Thanks, but I don't think the 5spoke really fits a B6.
