I have been reading that they are heavy and bend easy, does anyone run these? I am undecided if I like them or not. Sometimes I look and think they are the greatest, then look again and think they suck outloud.

true, but it is his post, so he should take a little time to make it a good one, to get better answers.

Mille Miglia makes quality wheels, alot of the BMW guys use them, not so sure how those would look on an a4 though.

They bend easily. I say no to the rims.

yeah, i was helping him out, not making fun of the rest of y'all. besides, what else is an insomniac to do with a cable modem and free time?


that is one of those wheels that looks like poo on some cars and is exceptional on others. it would look great on an infinity g35 for example. like poo on a turbo brick volvo.

Poopie, that's what I was hearing too. I didn't know if anyon here had run into problems personally. They are discontinued, so it will be tough to find a replacement.

i think they would look best in 18's, 17's with that lip would look like 16's.

as far as them bending easy do you have some kind of experience with them? (not being sarcastic) just wondering because from my understanding Mille Miglia makes quality wheels.

Man, ppl are testy tonight. Duely noted, I'll try to remember. Most of my posts are quite detailed.

Most of the Mille rims that pop up for sale have bends. My friend has one on his bmw and its bent and its a 17". I can't imagine what the 18's are like. They look quality up close but something is up with the material or lip design.

sorry if that was meant for me, just didn't feel like searching through the internet, but wanted to give my opinion.[:D]

as far as them bending, my friend had a set on his 98 3 series for over 3 years in New York and the car was slammed. They also sell forged rims but im pretty sure those arent.

hehe, testies.

Now the more I look at those lips the more I dislike them. I'll hold out for RS4 reps.

The concensus is, keep the pressures up in the tire and you should be ok. I still dont' like the style though if you go with them

the B7 rs4 reps are the best looking in my opinion.

i know! if i didn't already have rims, those would be my first choice. Even though i usually like some sort of lip. These rims definitely do it for me.[hail]

mille miglia = cheap crap. Tin foil would probably be lighter and stronger.

Yeah like everyone else said, they are low-end wheels, along with ADR and HP Evo.

Thanks, I guess there is a reason there is a deal for 5 of them with 5 tires for $500 near me.

i had them as snow rims on my S4 when i got it and hit something in the road 2 winters ago - bent 2 (undrivable) and blew 2 tires. they are pretty soft and bend easy. loook really cool tho.!

Here are some pics of mine. I had them on the A4. I really liked them...bent a couple...but only on huge holes I couldn't miss. I think the new owner is still running them.

Ben,

Are those 17's or 18's?

Ben@SpeedBarn

18s....they are the Emotion SSL(stainless steel lip) There are some with silver lips that match the rest of the wheel. I don't think they look as good.
