Hey all,

I found a great deal on some B7 A4 split 5 spokes on CL and will be switching them out with my stockies tomorrow.....................From what I understand I don't need centering rings because both wheels have the 57.1 hub size right? Also, will my stock lugnuts work fine? The B7 lug nuts came with the wheel so I have those as well, I just didn't know if it made a difference or not. Its feels good to finally be doing things myself and saving some cash! Ballin' on a budget FTW [up]

Thanks

If they are stock a4 wheels you should have no problem with fitment due to hub size. The bolts you are using now should also work unless you are adding spacers in which case you need to get longer bolts. Pretty straight forward so you should be all set.

OEM upgrades FTW. Wheels look very nice. I was actually torn between those wheels or the B6 Sports I have now.

Can you give the specs on those rims? I like them a lot! So far have you had any issues with rub, ride, etc? Those rooms look clean and not flashy.

Hey Mike,

These are OEM 17 x 7.5 wheels from the B7 A4 sport package. 2007 to be exact, I believe. I think theres a set in the classifieds right now actually. Look around and you should be able to find a good deal, I got this set for $450 with decent tires off of Craigs List. No rubbing and ride is great, but that really depends more on the tires than the rims.
