Was not so happy with my titanium S5 wheels (lot of vibration) and decided to change it, with this as a result.

Vibration is almost zero now, and it looks also much better imho.

You need a new monitor or something. The pics are clear as Waterford Crystal....

The rims are OK, but I prefer the stockers..

Car should never vibrate on stock equipment, should have brought it to the dealer. Also believe that car needs a drop on those wheels.

If you click on the pic (and again) you will see full resolution, not so bad imho? But maybe you mean the license plate.......what happened there? maybe it is the vibration effect??? :D

Car should never vibrate on stock equipment, should have brought it to the dealer. Also believe that car needs a drop on those wheels.
They tried to solve the vibration issue on the stock wheels, and suggested themselves to try new wheels (for a very good price, close to zero :cool:) and now the vibration issue is reduced to unnoticable, and if it gets worse, they will solve it (they supplied the new wheels too). Therefore I am very cuious about TSB 44-08-4, where this vibration issue is explained, does anyone have it?

BTW: lowering the car might be something to do after a few 1000s kms and no returning vibration issues

They dont suit the car in my honest opinion, dont understand why anyone wouldnt like the standard wheels, they look gorgeous with some elbow grease.

Where/How to get the Wheels

S4udibert

I like the RS6 tri-spokes you have. They are 19", right?
Can you give some details on where and how you got them, part # if Audi, general price.

I am considering buying the 19" Ys after I get my car. I would have ordered them when I bought the car but I was working to a budget.

I'll have to see if they can be bought from the dealer later and at what hellish cost.

It is indeed the 19" RS6 tri-spokes. They were about Euro 200 per wheel. Don't know the exact source / part nr for it, but will have a look.

Copies are available right now but they are only 8" wide instead of 8.5" wide.

No US part Number available right now

I stopped by my Audi dealer and their ETKA parts system shows a picture of this 3-spoke 5-arm design, but no part number. They said that there are some issues getting them from the German distributors.

The parts guy is looking out for the part number and methods for ordering them.
