    Very nice...as long as you can make them symmetrical! Can't stand one side rotates one way, the other, opposite.

    I like them better in Black than those ugly machined faces! Just wish they had some Matte Black mixed in.......

    Also not a fan of the machined face of the 5-arm-trapezoid design wheel. But, this forged design is, IMO, truly an evolutionary design that has endless possibilities in powdercoat, e.g., single or multi-color in high gloss, semi-gloss or matte.

    Here's the wheel in silver (excuse the res):

    Night and day! They look a zillion time better in Black! A satin finish would also look nice.
    Not so sure whos a fan of the machined wheels..

    What's unfortunate is that they look VERY similar to a new Honda Accord wheel.......disappointing!

    The last thing I want is an Audi, especially an expensive RS to resemble a Honda Accord in ANY way!!

    Sad, really sad.......

    A bit better however I am not a big fan off rims in new RS4 and RS5. think in previous gens were better and almost all of them are classic now. I can not see it here.

    The 5 arm peak design milled wheels look amazing in my opinion: https://icdn-3.motor1.com/images/mgl...on-edition.jpg. It's what I ordered for my RS5.

    I agree those do look better than the OEM 20s that come with the BO Pkg, but Im going for the dark theme on a Mythos Black car. Going with a Carbon Graphite color wheel.

    In real live those wheels looks so so. Becourse spokes are kinda straight thay looks sort of flat.

    Those would look better too, but Im going with Vorsteiner VFF-107s in 20x10 ET 30 in Carbon Graphite w 5mm spacers and Nitto 285/30R20s.
