So i found 4 Avus s4 wheels with tires for a screaming ass deal and then i begin to think..........I only have 4 of them and not a spare [confused]

how bad am i gonna fuck up my car when i get a flat and have to run a 17" oem 5 star to get to the next tire place to get it fixed?

i know i could always buy a 18" spare too, but well you know that just more money out of my pocket.

buy em. Most cars use a smaller spare anyway. If you're getting the screaming deal, take advantage of it.

Anytime we can help. Also, if you want to get your lowers painted, I know a few people that can help you out with top quality jobs for very reasonable prices.

i could use a painter tho, i had someone kiss my rear bumper and it needs a little TLC. Audi quoted me $440 to my surprise to fix it.

Actually i like my unpainted lowers tho, that and im gonna buy some S4 blades for the doors and leave em unfinished as well!

wow... 440 only? If its only a scuff and it didn't completely screw up the paint, they may want to do a color sand on it, which can fix the problem a lot of the time. If you want that done, I know a few detailers that can do it for less. If they're offering to paint your whole bumper for $440, I say take it. If you decide you want to get the lowers and everything painted, let me know. I have two painters in mind, both do good work.

Feel free to post anytime to ask.

Mine is at the shop right now getting painted. Hopefully I can pick it up tomorrow. Quoted me 300-350 for all the lowers, blades, and to redo my chipped front end. Crossing my fingers that it's a decent job.
