Keep an eye on Ebay, those things come up pretty frequently. In the meantime, if those are your stock wheels and it bothers you then you should have a nice spare in the trunk to stand in for it while you wait for a good priced eBay option.

Take a look at Hartmann wheels/Achtuning. They make good replicas at decent prices

Actually my stock are the 19". The 18" are my winter set and i bought them from craigslist. I found them on ebay for $225 shipped for one that is oem remanufactured. Is that good? I assume they were curb rashed or damaged previously and repaired. The other 3 wheels are not in the best shape so cosmetically i am not too concerned.

The add says for A4 and S4 also. Should I be worried about offsets? Or were they all the same offsets for the RS6 wheel?


Opinions please....

Thanks in advance.

Hey raj, that is mighty nice of you. I will try to look at the local yards this week. If it all fails i will see how much the shipping is. I just need the rim since the blizzak tire is not damaged. I am in NYC area. Thank you very much. I really appreciate it.

BTW, here's the listing for the wheel
http://seattle.craigslist.org/see/pts/4281779190.html

FWIW, through my work I get a discount on shipping services and recently got a quote for shipping a wheel (no tire) to the East Coast for $30.

FWIW, I had a set of 18" A5 wheels I was trying to sell, but was fortunate enough find a local buyer.

yes the offset is different and should NOT be mixed
for those wheels offset for c6 is 48 and for a4 is 43

i too recommend ebay and i would also add craigslist to the mix

shipping is not cheap
i sold and shipped a wheel tire to a member and from NJ to WA was over $50 USPS
ebay will get u alot of remanufactured wheels
but if u not in a hurry u will land on a nice one

agree with Mig, don't mix and match offsets. I have a setup which is +45 and then have a more aggressive setup in the works +35mm. But those setups are on 2 completely separate set of wheels. Keep looking at ebay and one the BEST resources is your local wrecking/auto recycle yard. Awhile back a friend of mine saw a SET of these wheels for $40/each!!!
