Hey guys my brother is getting a new set of wheels because his ronal r7s are the bigest peices of shit. They always bend, I think they are made out of play dough. =)

Anyway i think he wants to get some tsw wheels for cheap. he gets 50 percent off of the wheels. both the wheels he is debating go for 300 a rim, but his price is 150 a rim. 600 for the set. which do u guys perfer. both will be gunmetal (hyperblack) finish with a polished lip. vote away guys

Wheel one (my choice)

What color is your car? Do you like colored wheels? If you do I would suggest this: If it is silver, go with the gunmetal color. If your car is black, i would go with bronze wheel.

i like rim #2. rim one looks like old skool. and i think even in 18" or 19" they will give the appearance that they are smaller. some rims have that optical illusion....i know you guys have seen rims and thought that they are 14s or something and you look and they are 16 or whatever.

thanks guys, i like everyones feedback, the car its going on is a pearl white, so gunmetal looks fantastic on it. Wheel number two is not a real 2 peice wheel. Wheel number 1 looks older school but i beleive is a great overall design and looks good on audis. once again thanks for the feedback.

awesome guys, looks like a mixed feeling. He is going with number 1. thanks for all your imput. I do like the deep dish look on the number 2 rims but the one peice look i think is clean.

I love the number 2 wheels and have seen several sets in person. I really don't think they would look god on our cars however. On the other hand, I've seen a B5 A4 with your first choice and it was hot!!! Go with them!

If I had to choice between the two then it would be 1 but if I could choice any of TSW wheel then I would go with 3 and 4 close behind.
