The merc monoblocks have been growing on me for the last 6 months and I found a set that I like and think they would look good on a low Casa. Yes I know they're reps and I honestly don't care, but I have two other choices if I don't want these.

The reps (http://www.finishlinewheels.com/specials/16,MERCEDES+CARS/1201,Mercedes+98+AMG+Sport+Rims+18x8+%C0+18x9+Blac k/)

Or I could buy my buddies OEM AMG mono's

His CL add (http://detroit.craigslist.org/mcb/cto/2587279385.html)

Or I could get my brother in law's OEM wheels off his E55 AMG. These are the wheels just powder coated black.

I'd like to use my tires that I have now since they are pretty much brand new and expensive, Bridgestone Potenza RE040 235/40/18. I really don't want to rock my BBS VZ's anymore since I think they're ugly. Idk just give me your opinions or other wheel choices that you think would look good on a Casa A4, just nothing to crazy to break my wallet since I'm still spending money on my build.

Thanks fellas.

If it were me, I would go a different route.

That was just a reference to the wheels, the wheels in topic are powdered coated black and were never chrome. I thought I made that pretty obvious in my first post above the pic no?

Errr

For example, the Rotiform NUE wheels. They are more pricey, but a better option IMO. But if I had to choose from the wheels you posted, I's probably go with option #3 powder coated.

I don't like chrome, and I don't like those wheels on a merc, probably would not like them on an Audi

Sorry not digging it. The power coating makes it a bit better but still don't like it.

Since you asked for my opinion, I think those reps are would be a huge waste of money. Srs, reps are just pointless.
The benz wheels your brother in law has would be awesome on a B5! I'm not a fan of black wheels but its better than chrome.

post a picture of your car

Agreed

Post pics of your car and maybe a photoshop guru could do a quick chop to show us/you what they would look like.

Best way to figure out which wheels you want.
