Yay....I was looking at those the other day and really like the lip. I too like the RS-4 reps but they are so common. These are great but I haven't seen on a car yet or know the weights. I'd really like these in gun metal with a polished lip. Uh-huh!

Added: went to their site and they are ET42 so that might be a problem with rubbingif you are lowered. Still couldn't find weights.

These are made by TSW. Nice design, quite heavy.

nice, but if they were 9 spoke, i'd get them, but personally, even spokes aren't for me.

what's the difference between even/oddnumber spokes? is there a performance issue?

No performance difference, it's just a Chef thing. LOL

Remember how crappy our A3 brakes work? If the wheels are heavier than stock, then you are increasing your rotating mass and the brakes will suck even harder. Time to think of a brake upgrade with new wheels. Just some food for thought. >>>For you too Nam!

Cheers!
