OMG I WANT SOME RIMS LIKE THAT!!!!! I Think the manufacturer is FAIL. Rim is Called- GAMEOVER... Def. gotta pick up a set. (Sarcasm)

VMR's are Quality as well as anything else that's more than $200-250 a wheel depending on size. I have 19's and paid about $275 a wheel

Get something forged. Forged wheels are stronger and lighter than their cast counterparts. Gonna run you a pretty penny but I doubt you'll see anything like that on a forged wheel.

Some of y'all shit talkers need to stop and read slowly. I clearly said "Am tired of these cheap after market wheels that came WITH THE CAR" meaning I didn't purchase these personally I just got them with the car. I haven't bought wheels for my audi and that's why I want recommendation about what to buy now that I decided to buy some. Like am sharing and asking for recommendation not shit talkers.

Hartmann B5 RS4 style wheels have been discontinued though we do have our DTM style wheels available which look very similar.

http://shop.achtuning.com/Hartmann-HRS4-DTM-GS-18-Wheels-Audi.aspx

The Hartmann DTM wheels are made by Hartmann's German partner, who is the manufacturer of Techart and Brabus wheels. As far as I know, every B5 RS4 replica wheel currently on the market these days is Mainland Chinese made :(

I would think welding them would throw off the balancing of the tire entirely.. Anyone else?

Also, I'll be selling my wheels soon but not til the spring. They are B6 17's 5 spoke painted Metallic Bronze, Fresh All Season tires.. But again, not ready to sell til spring.

The first time it happen last winter I thought that too and was concern but it actually ended up needing less balancing than before so it worked out..my dad is a professional welder so I guess he knew what he was doing.
And as soon as the wheels are ready pm me thanks

I also agree that Karma is a bitch and will return to you for being a shitfuck. K thx bye!

for anyone that does not run disposable rims. I once hit a pot hole that bent my rim/ flat tire. I called the state police immediately and filed a report with them. If my rim could not be repaired i'd have it to go after the state for reimbursement. also told the cop had i been on my bike he'd be scraping me off the road. next day... hole was fixed. FIX HOLES NOT WHEELS.

sell some coke and buy some nice expensive wheels? u know being Colombian and all u can probably make a good profit (surprised how different this place has become, back in the day this would have been the first reply lol)




-I agree you need to start typing like a normal person, personally I can't take someone serious when they can barely type something remotely understandable.
-Selling something that you know could harm somebody else is a shitty move, and yes karma is a bitch.


But to give you my opinion, just get some oem wheels and save up until you can afford some good quality wheels. I personally love OZ wheels and they can take quite the abuse, I have used them on both my old A4 and my Porsche and do not have anything but good things to say about the brand.

Do you realize you can quote multiple quotes in one post and not have to make 5-10 replies? It's the little quote button like this ["+]

Since I guess you did after all need a thread for other people's opinions on wheels, maybe you should make another opinion on you headlights. I say sell those before a pothole jumps up and breaks them. Yes, they are cheap quality, so they will probably break like cheap wheels... but if you are going down the path of blaming the city and not your poor driving, then yes... I vote you make a thread with a pole on all your future mods and let an internet community decide for you.

USAF Long
02-17-2011, 09:28 AM
grind the welds down and paint them black on the insides. I don't think the wheel will break at the welds, and it can probably be balanced. But... heating the wheel up to weld it may weaken the rest of the aluminum near where it was welded. Personally I wouldn't want a wheel that had been welded. A small crack on the lip is one thing, but that is MAJOR damage to that wheel.
