Default New HRE's!

Put some new p104 20 inch wheels in brushed dark clear. Great finish, can see detail of wheel and blends well with Daytona Gray. The steering feel in remarkably better in dynamic mode, and weight savings are at least 7+ pounds per wheel. Running pilot sport A/S 3 as I'm in Colorado. Car feels even more responsive with the weight savings. My put super sports on in summer.
My OEM 21's in titanium finish with Pirelli P-Zero's are on ebay, or PM if interested.

Looks great. May I asked who did you go through to order those?

Do you know the width and offset?

How come you didn't just get the wheels in 21 and keep stock tires ?

The whole point of switching wheels for me was to be able to run some all seasons. There are only 2 choices of tire on the stock wheels, Pirelli P-zero and the Continental 5P summer tires. Plus, once you put on those super lightweight forged wheels, you don't want to go back to the stock heavy ones.

Yeah I just ordered 21" adv 's for my rs7.

I have another car for my daily so I'm not as concerned with the weight. The flash made the car a new animal.

Once you feel the improvement in steering with the lighter wheels in dynamic mode, you may change your mind

They do blend well with Daytona, but I definitely would have went 21". Weight savings or not, the RS7 just doesn't look quite right with 20", too beefy of a car.

Agree, but the 20 look good since wheel spokes go to tire. There is no good tire in 21, no all season or proper snow tire. Michelin super sports don't fit 21

Interesting perspective. I actually think the 20's look better. The 21's are almost cartoonish. Especially the stock wheels which have odd proportions. Maybe the ADV 21's won't have that issue.

Not sure, ordered them from Wheel Enhancement, wanted a little more aggressive than stock to fill well better. They did a perfect job. I recommend good aftermarket wheels for the rs7 21's, as they are so heavy. Steering is noticeably improved, as is responsiveness. I saved around 40 pounds in unsprung weight.

i agree with your impressions of the improvement with the lighter wheel. i live in the mountains in CO and use the stock 20 " wheels with nokian hakkas for my winter set up and hre 101 x 20 9.5 stock offset 35mm . i had hre 101 x 20x10s 27mm offset and that setup made the car oversensitive to steering inputs, off camber roads, rain grooves,and it was darty on hard acceleration and braking. edmunds has a great article on the lengths that audi has gone to keep the wheel center in line with the steering axis. any change can manifest itself and it my experience did. a heavier tire/wheel will also tend to exacerbate the issues
