I'm really into buying a set of Audi rims for my B5.5. I just don't know which ones. I tried to complete a search to look for anyone on this board that may have a pic of either of these rims on their B5 but I couldn't get the search to go before the new year. What do you guys think, A4 rims or S4? Anyone have any pics?


Here's a pic of the A4 rims. I don't have a pic of the S4 ones.

I have a photo of these A4 Sport Package 17" rims on my B5.
They're custom painted Satin Silver too. Here you go:

HKpassat, that looks good !

Did you have any issues with the installation of these wheels? Did you have to make any changes due to the tire being wider or anything like that? I want to make sure I won't have to make any mod's to implement these.

There are no modifications necessary with either wheel.

They were plug and play.

I'm using 235/45/17 tires (which is same tire spec for the A4s) though if I were to do it again I might've gone with 225/45/17 to save some gas on my V6 as a daily driver. I'm running on Pirelli P7000 SuperSports and I've been running on them over a year, including abusing them at autocrossing events and they still have lots of tread so I'm quite impressed.

Anyone have any idea what the difference in weight is between the S4 rims and the A4 rims?

the_house: Is your B5.5 Wagon lowered or is that stock? I like the avus rims on a black B5.5 but not sure if I want to do it with stock suspension.
