Those do not work on a silver car. Plus you need to paint your lowers if your going to run some 19" reps

Nice! Thanks guys.

Ehh, painted lowers are too much work. I'm ok with the contrast. The red stripe might have to go if anything is getting painted.

I sold my A3 wheels and paid some cash. $1k for rims/tires. So after selling my old wheels, I actually ended up paying $450 out of pocket for the wheels. Really a pretty solid deal.

I really like those rims. Trade you my swings for them :) People only say to paint your lowers because another person said it. I think maybe 25% actually like painted lowers. Nice car!

Haha seriously.

I think painted lowers look nice on some cars. Just not for me. =]

Thanks guys. I really like the way this car is starting to look. Piece by piece.

Looks great. I'd replace the BB5 center caps with Audi caps or at least some of the gold BBS ones. Gold will look funny but those are supposed to be LM wheels and all forged wheels come with gold cap lettering. Best bet is to not try to fake it and go with the dark silver Audi center caps. Folks will think your car came with some exclusive options.

How much do those wheels weigh?

Thanks. I've been wondering how mine would look with 245/35-18 and those wheels. [:p]

Haha yeah, the super big black wheel option. I think eventually I will just put on some Audi caps. I just got the wheels last night. Give me a little time. =]

I like the wheels, but I still think 18's look better on B5s. Looks good, nonetheless.

Also, I think your car is the tallest stock B5 I've ever seen. LOL.

those actually look really damn nice. most cant pull off 19's on a B5, but i think you did.

Thanks everyone. Also forgot to mention I really like your black on black avant OMEGA SUPREME.

Wow thanks man! Much appreciated!

I will post pictures of it loaded with bikes as soon as I get a chance. I race downhill mountain bikes so this car/bike racks get plenty of use. [up]

Seriously? I did dual slalom and downhill with deals from santa cruz, raceface, and cane creek. Also worked at Nuke Proof way back in the day and laced all my own wheels. There are a few riders on the forum. [up]

Your car looks good. Tell folks it was a special Hot Wheels edition. [:D]

the black wheels and a bike thing...

I am actually racing for Tomac this year with there new bikes for 2008. Its more of a grassroots sponsor, but still is awesome! I also have been riding for 661 for a couple years now. Not pro or anything but I race a lot. =]

You going to be at the Sea Otter this year?

Not digging it on silver. Maybe I am just used to the polished lip. Props for having some nice wheels. I woulda done a different color, but its all good. I wish I could find a Avant...

i almost bought the same wheels in 18's my car is sliver too, but either tie in the red stripe with red somewhere else on the car or paint the stripe black. nice wheels, i guess black is a bike guy thing, my wheels are black and i ride trials....

AAQSC
01-14-2008, 10:30 AM
Ha nice!

Yeah I think I might tie the red in with something. I don't want to go overboard with red on the car so I might keep it as subtle as possible.

My new bike and rims match. =]

Sorry I didnt respond earlier, it is Bilstein sport shocks and Neuspeed Race springs.

Very nice. I've got a couple little kids so I'm the old guy that gets fat in winter. I'm joining Team Sandbag now which should help get me out of the house. [up]

Ha nice.

Yeah I am starting training this week. Cyclocross rides every day on lunch and trail rides at night/the weekends. I need to burn off my 15lbs from having shoulder surgery in September and just get back into shape.

I will be at the Sea Otter again this year. Hopefully get top 10 in Sport. I missed it by less than a second last year. I got 12th of 70 in my class.

AAQC where did you cop those rims from. they are sick. how much did you pay. also what brand are they?

AAQSC
01-14-2008, 04:23 PM
I got them from a friend of mine. They are discontinued because BBS sued the company. I think they were made by Volk. I paid $1,000 total for rims/tires. Cannot complain. They are actually lighter than real BBS LM's in this size. =]
