You certainly dont have to spend big Bucks to get something different.
Mine only cost me £300 including tyres and a full refurb and respray and new centre caps.

you just need to spend a bit of time looking at whats available.

And then buy them cheap of someone who sprayed them bright yellow :D

where did you get your centres from

i want some of those

my centre are same size as merc aswell
You can get them from T4sRUS in silver or black.

Back to the OP, I've spent weeks/months contemplating which wheels to go for, had some really nice Stamford Mesh 19's which I ran for a while but didn't want to cough up for the refurb so gave them back to my mate. The wheels I kept getting drawn to were the AMG Merc wheels and I finally managed to get a set but not sure the offsets will work (31 front and 35 back) as I wanted to stick with 225/45/18 and 245/40/18 but the van is lowered about 90-95mm. Also, now I've got them I'm not sure what to go for

My main problem is, I can never visualise what certain wheels will look like on the T4 and let's face it, wheels can make or break the look of a van. I've seen 2 on this thread I considered!

never took it as a dig.....just making the point that the audi debate seems to come up on every wheel thread now.....if people want to fit audi rims,then why not....but by making the thread...'no audi rims here'....i dont see how that can be taken any other way...next it will be merc wheels everyone frowns upon,as they are getting more common...

seems to me the froum is beginning to become obsessed with the pushing new things,yes thats good,but not everything,people on here struggle and work hard to keep,run and mod there vans....and after paying for a set of wheels they like,ecspecially a newby they are confronted by a thread like this.....not having a dig will....no where you are coming from...but toplines,bbs etc are not always in peoples grasp....i know there are some bargains out there,but not very often for the kind of money a repo set of audi rims will cost...

Push the new stuff lads,build cool vans,as you do...A:but dont frown upon others who can only afford the normal mods and average wheels....:ILU:

Point takenA: But if i had posted "lets see your rims" there would have been pages and pages of audi rims. Like i said this is not an anti audi rim threadI: Just wanted to see some different rims. New folk and fellow to the forum should be able to make there own mind up, i'm not saying dont buy audi rims, far from it:ILU:
