Looking for a set of 17 or 18 inch rims. Not looking for replicas, but OEM or good quality aftermarket rims. Thanks.


In particular,there are two specific sets of Audi rims I'm looking for:

This second set is a 5 spoke with the spokes twisting towards one direction. Sorry, I couldnt get a better image for the second set. It is made in replicas by Replica wheels Canada AD56, so you can find a picture of it on their site.

I can't seem to find the size of these rims, but either set will do, preferably 18s, 17s will be ok too.

Please pm if you have the above set of rims or any BBS rims for sale. Thanks a lot.

Should probably not focus on the first set of rims. Those are the Titanium package rims and they are really hard to come by. Won't be cheap either.

The titaniums are very rare and expensive. I sold mine set of 4 for $1,300 with worn tires and slight curb rash.

You may want check these out...much cheaper and nicer design in silver: http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/_Car-Truck-Parts-Accessories__18-AUDI-SILVER-A4-A6-A8-S4-S6-S8-WHEELS-RIMS_W0QQitemZ280271507069QQadiZ2865QQadnZCarQ20Q2 6Q20TruckQ20PartsQ20Q26Q20AccessoriesQQcmdZViewIte m?hash=item280271507069&_trksid=p4506.c0.m245&_trkparms=72%3A317%7C65%3A12%7C39%3A1%7C240%3A1318

FWIW, I sold mine because they are a drag to keep clean. I spent a good 20-30mins on them every time I washed the car.

I have 2 sets of SSR.
The integrals (older 5 spoke looking design) with 25% re750s left. They look better than the photo (packing tape and mud on the wheels). Forged 18-19lbs. $paid $900 to get these, offers. 17x8.

the comps with competition rubber. Real deal, forged 17lbs. 17x8.5, paid over $2000 to get this combo.

Both are landed in Canada, and were used on my S4 (B6). Calgary, will ship greyhound/fedex/UPS for about $150 or so. Less if you don't want the tires. Includes lugs and hubcentric rings.

a set just sold on audizine for 800 with new tires. not expensive...not hard to come by (almost all 2008 B7 cars sold lately had Titanium package, and tons of those buyers traded into aftermarket.
