Looking to buy 17" or 18" steelies for my A4...are there any web-sites or do I have to find them from new MKIVs??? Any help would be appreciated!

those are some big steelies. i think there was a thread about this before the crash but i believe that you will have some trouble finding these since wheels that are 17" and bigger provide a full size spare instead of a giant steelie with low profile tires. why do you want such a big steelie anyway?

In our bolt pattern that is going to be a tough find. Call up local wheel stores and see what they might be able to find, I know I had 16s and those were the top end at the time.

You'd probably have better luck finding used 17's or 18's for cheaper than new steelies in those sizes - if you can find steel wheels in those sizes at all...

Check out craigslist - I've had a lot of success finding wheels for decent prices on there...that's how I got my winter setup...

I had searched a few years back and found a 17x7 steelie that would fit the A4 but it was over 100 bucks. That was right when Edge Racing was moving to a new warehouse and liquidating some inventory. I bought a set of 4 new 17x8 Flik Lex for $396. I get prettier and lighter wheels for less than fugly flexy steelies. Can't beat that.

Why make an Audi into a 'rat-rod'? At the very least, for the love of god, just buy some cheap 17's and paint them black...

i think 16" is about as big as you wanna go with snow tires

I have seen 17in steelies just not on an A4. Old Mitsi Eclipse had 17in steelies with hubcaps. One of my exs had one and i had to buy her hubcaps. The body style was right aftert the headlight pop up style and right before the girlie obsessed eclipse look style. Also I know VW R32s have a 17in spare wheel. Check out ECStuning.com They might have it. Also doesnt Audi TT have 17in steelies? I saw a few at the dealership with them on.
