Default My new silver Hartmann RS4 Rep wheels installed

20"x9" ET40

Despite the fact that the Titanium Peelers started go grow on me and I liked more than I thought, I'm still happier having installed these wheels. I was a little nervous as I was getting the tires mounted and when I was installing them. But as soon as a I stepped back and saw the car complete, I was much happier. I started to think I might need to go with silver peelers instead, but that thought went away quickly. And every time I have looked at the car since. I recall seeing LarryV's SQ5 photos and noted that I liked some of the silver/chrome trim that I didn't have - now with silver wheels, I've gained some of that silver color back and I'm quite happy with this combo.

Still had the Uhaul trailer, so used that to transport the wheels/tires to get mounted:

Looks great. I was contemplating getting the peelers but listened to my wife and went with the Hartmann RS4 replicas as well.

i've been looking at possibly picking up some VMR rs4 replicas in anthracite or flat black for my glacier white metallic Q5. they look sweet on your car, and now i know 20" is not too big. any particular reason you went with hartmann?

Nice! I was sorely tempted to order a set of those, but I've gotten so many compliments on the stock Titaniums, I figure I'll roll with 'em. Imagine you can turn your stockers into cash very quickly if you choose to.

I've bought from them before and had good experiences, so it was natural for me to return. I had also emailed VMR, and again a second time after no response, and by the time they finally replied I had already purchased from Achtuning/Hartmann. I had considered VMR in the past as I like some of their wheels.

Here were (B5) RS4 reps on my S4 Avant:

cool, that's some good info. customer service does go a long way. i don't mind paying a little more if i know i'll be taken care of. my dealer actually sells VMRs, and the ones in the parts dept have audi center caps. they're offering 20% right now, but i'm not sure if that's off of some dealer markup or not. i have entertained the idea of getting some HRE FF01s, but i just don't see any value in marginally lighter wheels on an SUV. they are quite nice looking tho!

I like RS4 reps but it's too bad the fitment for the Q5 has such a shallow offset. Compare to the genuine wheels:

yeah, see how much that price truly becomes - it may be jacked up just to then give a pseudo-sale. I was quoted from VMR "20x9 ET35 V708s: $1200" plus shipping. At Achtuning, the Audi center caps were $99.

These are ET40, but they also have ET25 for the Q5. However, I don't know if they put any depth differences into the face of the wheel or if the offset difference is entirely in the back of the wheel. I'd guess the later is more likely for ease of design for varying ETs as they're likely doing this one wheel to fit many different cars, brake setups, etc.

I have to wait for a real plate before I can request a vanity. But I'm going with OILBURNR, or actually a slight variant since that's already taken.

I think BURNS OIL was available, but put all together, it could be read as BURN SOIL

yeah, we'll see what the price is on the 708s. i actually like the 710s a lot as well. the VMRs seem quite a bit less expensive than the hartmanns. but i guess enough VAG folks ride them that i shouldn't be too alarmed.
i also would need to figure out what to do with the stock wheel/tire setup. i live in socal, so the option of having dedicated summer/winter tires doesn't work. i'm not sure what the stock prem plus 19" would go for even.
btw, "burn soil" could also mean that you're a trailblazer. =) how about drinks oil or some variation of that?
one funny thing about cali is that you don't even get a paper temp plate to put in the license plate holder. they just stick some documents on your front windshield. so unless a cop looks at the folded doc taped to your windshield, there's no way he can tell if your temp plates have expired. a friend of mine hasn't put plates on his car for 2 years now...hasn't had a problem yet. he also hasn't had to pay tolls on the toll roads either!

Mark,

You mentioned it somewhere else, but what tire / size did you end up mounting on the Hartmanns.

Looks great Mark, congrats!

I've always been a big fan of the RS4 wheels but for some reason in 20" they look small to my eyes on the Q5. Shame that nobody (that I can find) makes a good replica or basically any other 21" wheel offerings for the Q5.

Hey mark - Just so there's no confusion, I'm not saying they look bad at all! It's just that after owning my RS4 for 7 solid years I've grown accustomed to how they look on my RS4, for better or for worse.

What tires did you go with?

Looks great Mark!

No plans to install Audi center caps to complete the oem look?

They've looked small to me on some color cars as well, but I am happy with their look on my color/car, so I'm good
