View Full Version : New Mod completed

Today took the car to install the new wheels on my 2010 C6 A6 3.0. Went conservative for now but I am extremely happy with the look, the feel and the more aggressive offset. Plus they weigh less than the OEs. I had 19x8.5 et 43 OEs from Audi, I installed 19x8.5et 38 Hartmann 256 Replicas. I also weighed the OEs and they were 29.6lbs the Hartmanns were 26.2lbs which made me even happier because usually replica wheels are heavier.

Looking good! I see what you were telling me, they look way better on the car than in pictures ;p

Thanks guys and even these pics dont do them justice. Seeing the car live they are even more aggressive looking because they are actually more concave than they appear in the photos. The car drives great but about 30 minutes after I got home. It started raining pretty hard so not much chance to test drive for a few days since we are expecting this stuff till Friday.

Wow, those look way better than I expected. Good choice!

PS: You need to start posting bigger pictures for us, I keep wanting to look closer [:p]

I keep trying to post larger photos but for some reason photobucket is downsizing them.

On the tint, please use this guy, he has been tinting my cars since I moved to California in 1999. Really great guy, exceptional work and great price and tell him Phillip Kancel sent you and he'll take good care of you. His business partner screwed him over for years and he finally got away and started his own. His shop is about 1/2 mile off the 55 and Edinger, right near Crevier BMW. He does most of the dealerships cars when they have a customer needing tint.

Leo Torres-TW Tint Here is his info:

1701 E. Edinger Ave. Unit C8, Santa Ana, CA 92705 / (714) 543-4677

looks good....

I like the look. A buddy keeps telling me that less spoke on the rim looks bad unless you are running a big brake kit with oversize rotors. You pulled this look off though.

Thanks Ptown, I have always been a big fan of spoke style wheels, 5 or 6 spoke. Most of the cars I have owned somehow always end up leaning that way. I have tried other styles but they just wear out on me so I end up changing. This time decided to start here and the only thing that would make me change is if I could get this in a 20.
