    2019 RS5 Coupe - Flag versus Trap wheels question

    Guest-only advertisement. Register or Log In now!
    Iím trying to resolve an open question about the availability of the 20Ē 5-arm-flag design wheel, forged, Anthracite bi-color finish wheels for the 2019 RS5 Coupe.

    The RS5 Sportback Black Optic Carbon package features that particular wheel. What is uncertain is whether that same wheel is offered with the RS5 Coupe Black Optic Carbon package.

    The Audi order sheet and the Audi online build configurator are in direct conflict with one another. My salesperson canít get a straight answer either. Do any of you know for certain? I think the Flag design wheel looks so much better than the Trap design wheel.

    I believe it is exclusive to the SB.

    Here is a link to the Wheel Library on the Audi site -> Wheel Library

    Thanks, Batman - I had studied that before my post and it seems dispositive. However, the RS5 Coupe build page shows the Flag design being the wheel that corresponds with the Black Optic Carbon package on the Coupe. So, even Audi's online publications are directly at odds with one another.

    That not what I see when I select the Black Optics or Black Optics Carbon package for the RS5 Coupe. I see the design with the black bar. As previously mentioned the flag design is exclusively for the RS5 Sportback.

    Edit* I see what you mean the text reads 5 arm flag design for the Black Optics Carbon Package. On the Black Optics Package it reads 5 arm trapazoid. I think it just a typo and they both are the 5 arm trapazoid

    The order guide also shows 5 arm trapazoid for both options on the RS5 Coupe. So I think you have your answer.

    I would guess the flag part is a typo, but it would be a nice option. I like how the flag wheels look online / pictures and want to see them in person.

    Looks like her car came with the milled wheels and she went with these. Crazy as the milled wheels cost more and many are paying to upgrade to those. I honestly like both.
