Hi all,
Getting the A5 Sportback this July.
The car is in Daytona Grey color.
Also buying the Forgestar CF10 rims.
But can't decide on the rim color....
Not many people chooses the regular silver color for the CF10...
Do you guys think Daytona Grey will go better with silver rims than gunmetal/matte black rims?
Any photos? Thanks!

Silver, gunmetal and titanium would all look good. I just got my cf10's. Custom black graphite. Might be a good option. Would def look good on daytona. They are in between silver and gunmetal and show lighter and darker dependent upon lighting. Pics in build link below.

thanks mop,
love your black graphite, but not sure how it will goes with Daytona as i think daytona is a little bit darker than yours....
also about the 19" CF10, my rim guy suggested to go with 19 x 9.5 (like the concave effect) on all 4.....ET25 in front and ET15 in rear.....does this sound OK?
and with 255/35 tire....is this tire size too small for 9.5" and will it stretch too much?

No prob. Yea the 255's will work fine and not be too stretched. I ran 275 on my 9.5's. The et15 rear will look good. I would go et20 front, not et25. My BBS 9.5 setup was et21 front and et16 rear. With the CF's I went out about 8mm more than the BBS. Still rub.
