Looking at getting wheels for my 02 t4 888 special, like the audi rs4's/6's/8's etc and see a lot of you guy's have these.

I have been advised to steer clear of the replicas due to some of them being poor quality, notsuitable for vans and prone to cracking.

Any advice appreciated from those who have them.

Rob,

That's spookily similar to what I'm looking for for my '02 T4 888! - 18" A6 five-spokes, 235/45(ish). Perhaps we should club together and get a discount!
I've put a few questions out to some of the guys and girls on the forum to find what they're running on that I like and they've all been super-helpful. I'll keep you posted with any progress.

Cheers,
Tristan.

Don't think anyones gone for a group discount on wheels yet, even on the old forum...stand to be corrected though.

Mind you...if anyones interested in investigating the possibilities then i'm totally up for a set of RS6's I:

I am all for the group discount thing. But, is there good wheels and bad wheels, eg, make, suppliers etc.

Davie T4 had a go on the old forum but it's one of those thats difficult to put together as everyone's wants are different.

Apparently it's not just the replicas: there was a bad run of wheels from Audi themselves which led to a recall as far as I'm aware so be a bit carefull.

These are the wheels that I want (Desperate Dan's been one of the chaps who's kindly helped me in my search!). I'll contact Totally T4 and see what they can do.

Cheers,
Tristan.

All,

I've spoken with Laurence at Totally T4. 4 x RS6 18" replicas, including load rated tyres (92) 225/40/18 is £550. These are the Nuovolari(?) wheels from Italy. He also recommends lowering the van by 60mm - new springs on the rear (£100 from him), roll down the torsion bars on the front (then get tracking, etc, re-done).
How does that all sound? No group discount, I'm afraid!

Cheers,
Tristan.

Yes,
I've had some RS6 from Laurence and they are spot on,
Although I personally went for higher load rated tyres.
Without starting the old "Load rated Tyres Chestnut"
92 is a bit too low for me, Went for 95XL + I have been to the weighbridge to confirm the van GVW when fully loaded for a camping trip.
