Hey guys i have been given the offer to trade my OEM 17 inch s4 rims (with some curb rash) for 18 inch filk wasps (black with polished Lip) plus 200 dollars as in i give them my rims plus i give them 200 dollars with those. My wheels are 17 inch s4 OEM with curb rash and the tires are pretty messed up. And from what i know those Filks are in good condition with brand new tires. would this be a good trade?

02-04-2007, 03:04 PM
sounds like a nice deal. Got any pics of the rims?

Very good deal... Used S4 rims don't go for more than $500 usually.

^^^^^ but S4, Rs4 tims are the hottest.. i think they compare to some bbs rims imo.. there is nothing more orignial then S4 or Rs4 ;my take of it, keep the S4 rims for winter and buy the other rims also.. am actually looking for some 17" S4 rims

what color is your car? Black wasps should go well with most colors...besides, i don't like s4 wheels on a4s...if it was me, i would def do that trade

umm about the winter thing i mean i live in SOCAL there really isent ne need for 2 different rims for different seasons. and my cars a santorini blue (if thats how its spelled) i think itll look good

They'll look good.

Here's a pic of Arif's car with those:

I would try my luck with $150 cash and call it a day...
Your rims are curbed rash you are getting rims in better condition as long as the tires had more than 6months of wear left then i don't see the problem.

I saw arif's car in a Eurotuner video...

02-05-2007, 04:10 PM
This is a picture of them before teh powdercoat started to go bad because of wheel cleaning products taht carwashes used (which is why i will never pay for someone to wash my car again)

Flik is a Rota wheel sister company..

the wheels are junk...

Not VSO or TUV approved

The Aluminum used is not Virgin but Older Recycled material..

if you put each individual wheel on a scale they will not weigh anywhere near the same being 3-4 lbs a pc difference in weight

I've seen a Set of Rota wheels with the center hub section ripped apart front a small pothole...

Do not Buy cheap wheels... Period
