they're 18x7.5 rims. as for locks, i use the "eurolocks", which actually fit perfectly. if you look closely at the photo, you'll notice the bolt right before the spoke with the "rays" on it (going clockwise) looks slightly different -- that's the wheel lock.

Is lighter than stock? also how much did you pay for the rims? I'm thinking about getting a set myself =P''' also any wheel well rub with 18"? what offset did you get? thanks
sorry for so many questions :)

Plus 3-4 month wait.

yep -- with my tires (235/40r18 yokohama avs sports), they came out to 39.5 lbs a wheel, with air -- that's 10.5 lbs lighter than stock.
i paid ~$600 per rim, plus shipping. not cheap, but they are worth every penny -- they've proven very durable, and still look great 9 months later.
last i checked, there's only one size that fits the s4: 18x7.5 et35. with a stock suspension, you won't encounter any rubbing -- i'm running kw coilovers, which are 1.25" lower than stock (all around), and i have not experienced any rubbing even with the 235mm rubber. ymmv.

I live in Dorchester. I work around MA. If you see Massachusetts Floor Care then that's the company i work for. =)

did they need a spacer? And you mentioned only the 18x7.5 et35 fits the S4, what about 17"s? TIA

they come predrilled in the correct (5x112) bolt pattern. regarding spacers: i've never needed them, but i think you may need a 2mm spacer or so in the front if your brake pads are brand new. as far as size goes, i don't think any 17" te37's will clear the front calipers, but i don't know for sure.
hope this helps
