Default New s8/s5/a line 20" wheels on 2004 Audi a8/d3

Hey gents-

Wanted to get some pics out there of this wheel setup.

I love the wheels but wasn't sure how much id like them on my car. Definitely like them a lot but don't know that I love them - maybe a bit too sporty/low profile but overall I'm happy and think it was a nice refresh.

Oem replica 20's. What do you guys think?

Default Love them!

Amazing how it changes the entire personality of the car!

Audi "Turbine" wheels (like your old ones) are some of my all-time favorites but those reps are really good-looking on your car.

Are you coming to Nashville any time soon? Those old turbines would look good ao my Passat!

Default How tall are they

What size tires are you running? My 19's are okay, want 20's.

I think it's a definite improvement over the stock turbine wheels.

Thanks guys.

255/35/20 tires.

Keeping the turbines for winter. They were refinished when I got them so were painted not polished.

Appreciate the compliments.

I have the same style wheels on my S8, they are 21" off a 2013 S8
It took me a while to get used to them, but I love the look.
I think they look great on your car.
