I found these wheels while searching Ebay for a new summer set. They look like the RS5 wheels, never seen them on the B5 before.

those wheels look great on that S5, but I'm not too sure about them on a B5 A4. If you do want that style though, Achtuning had a set of hartman wheels that were identical to the ones from ebay.

Its hard to tell without actually seeing them on the car. IF I had to guess, im gonna say they would look gross.

Personal opinion? I don't really like them. Ebay always has a wide variety of wheels for our vehicles. And if you are going to pay $720 after shipping, I would look into some other wheels. Just my personal opinion. Though it is your car, and if you like it then by all means go ahead and purchase. I just think you could find better.

I browse this list (http://shop.ebay.com/?_from=R40&_trksid=m38.l1313&_nkw=18%22+audi+wheels&_sacat=See-All-Categories) on occassion to find new models and deals.

The B5's have the wrong body lines and fender spacing to rock that wheel correctly.

I saw a pic of stock S5 wheels on a B7 A4 and it looked nasty. Keep in mind you'll have almost an inch more poke than you have now 16x7 (stock) Et45 vs 18x8

Eww.

IMHO, oem+ wheels should never be more than one generation newer than the car.

not a fan of the tri-5's. or tri-anything. i just think its an ugly spoke design imo. my fav oem wheels are the b7 17" twin-5's. for the price i would definitely find something else. but just my opinion.

Well i think a B5 picture with the wheels on them would be better to judge them off of ...thanks for the list(Seerlah).. i have been looking for these wheels for a long time.I will gt them but remove the MB from it.

Im trying to go with something OEM looking, either the RS5 wheels, B7 RS4 wheels, or the A8 turbine wheels which are polished. Im having trouble finding B5's with the A8 wheels tho so if anyone has some post them up. TIA

b7 rs4 is definitely a better way to go those s5 wheels.
