Recently purchased a 2013 A5 black edition and looking to change the wheels.Found two different sets similar looking but I hate choices so let me know ‘your’ opinions?

1- top set gloss black
2- Matt black

Gloss black set for me. They'll be slightly easier to clean too.
They would also really stand out in hyper silver. ?

I'd avoid going for the R8 replicas which is the second set you've attached. Cheap chinese wheels will just about always crack, the load ratings are normally lower than OE and heavier!

These have a 815kg load rating.
That sounds reasonable, but as they don't comply with EU regulations and standards it wouldn't surprise me if they just stamped any old figure on them, they're not VOSA tested. They're actually illegal in Germany and other European countries.
Just my 2p, as I do own an automotive customisation business, which mainly focuses on wheel upgrades.

I’m kind of leaning towards those
rather than the flatter angular wheels??
I like the first ones, but I'm biased because I have a very similar set on mine haha.
Might be selling though as I've seen another set I really like the look of.
