love those wheels, but you should get one of those things that hides the front plate for the state plate...

Normally I don't roll with two plates. However in VA it's the law to have a front plate. Anyways my wife drove the car up to visit her folks in Richmond on Saturday, where I know the cops give people a hard time, so I zip tied the plate onto the car. And with Memorial day coming up, I think I'll leave it on for another week incase we go to the oceanfront, beach cops also like writing stupid tickets.

They are not, in fact they are suppose to be RS4 reps, however they where the first reproductions I've seen with a deep dish, at first I wasn't going to get them, and the more I looked at it I thought I'd go for it. So many black audi's with RS4 wheels already, so this is similar but slightly different. I'm pretty happy with them.

The wheels are 18x8 with 35mm offset, very little poke. The tires are 235x40-18. I know most folks go 225 and I don't see how, because to me this tire looks alil small on the rim. But I'm not into that whole show the lip of the rim thing.

I'm slightly upset I didn't think this through a little better, but I upgraded the rotors and brake pads three weeks ago, and now I'm thinking I need the A8 upgrade to fit the wheels, lol.

I like them, the dish is a nice variation of the normal RS4 reps.

looking good!! im not a fan of the double plates but if VA is anything like NJ, you gota do what is needed...
some kid around me in a b6 has the euro plate (not sure if hes got a euro bumper) but his regular plate is just mounted to the side...

on a side note, scrub the red dots off the wheel from the alignment/balancing i forget which it comes from but i had silly yellow & red dots spinning around

SWEEEETT avatar BTW!!!

I'm typically give people shit about rs4 reps just because so many people have them..

However, I'm digging the dish on this version. Looks good man!

FYI, I do not believe these are OEM wheels. Ebay reps.

I love deep dish rims, I am jealous that most BMW's come with factory deep dish rims, I thought this was pretty close to classy and stock looking, while getting a bit of an aftermarket look. I like them.
