    Thanks. I did find some from 2012 on a Q5. Can't make up my mind. Liking the meaty look from 295 and more a VFF103/CI-R fan. Need some convincing.

    Thx, I've seen Your setup in 21" and it's perfect. I can get set of 20x9 LM-R ET35 in really good money but I'm afraid they will be simply too small...
    This is a specific wheel with the lip which makes them visually even smaller. Hard decision...

    Yep, I know exactly what you mean. I've run a few other LM/LM-R setups. The closest example I have would be my TE setup. Totally different wheel, but similar effect with the short spokes and lip.



    I say do it! Run a thicker tire, and they'll look really cool.

    All Your setups are perfect but in all also the suspension works which is I think maximum lowered. I'll go in the H&R springs which are about -1.6 F and R, so it won't be as low as in Your setups and this is the next point... That why I'm also considering getting 21' from RS6 which could looks better than 20' with not as low suspension. If I go in 20x9 LM-R I run 265/45 or You suggest other size?

    What spacers do You suggest for 20x9 ET35? 7mm F + 15mm R or 10mm F + 20mm R?


    Is an mixed tyres/wheels size good idea for Q5 with Quattro? I mean F 20x8,5 with 245/45 and R 20x10 with 275/40 or such setup could damage drive and gearbox?

    Looking for some thoughts / recommendations on a winter wheel setup for my sepang SQ. I have the tires already 265 45 20.

    I am looking for some cheap wheels as these are going to be winter beaters. So far my top 2 contenders are:

    TSW Sebring 20x10 et25
    Niche Gamma matte bronxe 20x9 et38

    My thoughts / questions. Are 265's going to be stretched on a 10" wheel and will I have lots of poke at et25? As for the niche matte bronze I have always wanted some bronze wheels, but not sure if they will look out of place with all of the chrome on the SQ.

    I cannot see the bronze looking great to be honest. If you had black optics, hell yea. No matter TSW>Niche. No question. Also, neither of those are going to be easy to clean, and that is not what you want for a winter wheel. I'd also look at Hartmann and VMR.

    For the 20x10 on 265/45... they'll look fine. What tire make/model?

    @jimminez Post up your old 20x10 winter setup.

    I went with rotor reps for winter but 19x8.5 ET33 with 235/55 tires. Easy to clean the snow and ice out of which will help avoid any vibrations, unless you can pressure wash regularly.
    There's usually a few sets of rotors kicking around in the classifieds.

    Thanks for confirming my fears on the bronze. All the Sepang / bronze set up I saw were all BO. I have been leaning towards the TSW because I love mesh wheels and they are dirt cheep. I had rotiform BLQ's on my last car for winter and never had any issue with cleaning / snow build up. My garage is heated so anything that does pack in melts off. I am also not driving through more than 6" of snow any any regular baThe VMR V710 does interest me, but I'm not sure if I like them any more than the TSW.

    As for the tires they are Pirelli Scorpion snow & ice.

    How is ET25 fitment? I see lots of people saying ET25 ish is perfect, but some pictures make it look like they are poking out the top of the arches.

    There are are a few options available locally, but I just don't love the look of most of the factory 20" options.

    My guess is that any pics of ET25 that are poking are sporting 295 tires. With your drop, and 265 tires, I'd be really surprised if you had unruly poke.

    @ ryanj, I think poke is somewhat dependent on your angle of view, since there is a bit of taper in the body design. FWIW, for comparison I'm running 20x10 ET25 w/ 275/40 tires. I think you'll be very happy with the look of your set.

    I thought for sure it read, "Keep here." (I have driven by there on a weekday, and that lot is jammed full.)

    Thanks for the pictures. ET 25 does look good and nothing beats some good concave. It's looking like I am going to have to pull the trigger on the TSW's I will post some pictures once I have them mounted up

    Yeah tire size is set in stone as I already have them and they have at least 2 seasons left in them.

    Just a reminder, we still have this 20x10 ET42 V-FF 107 in custom fully brushed. Selling them for $2,250 shipped. That is below dealer cost. With some 10mm spacers, these would be amazing on a Q.
