the car is stock other wise (sport suspension).

Prestige bumper is at the bodyshop getting painted,

Yeah, I have Niche Targa 10.5's on my A7 as well. I'm running 275/30/20 tires for a slight stretch, but will definitely be going to a 285 next time around... too much exposed rim = too easy to curb.

Wow, very sharp. Nice touch on the amber and red signal lamps to body color.

what brand of tires are you running with this setup? are they quiet?
are the Niche wheels heavier than the OEM Audi wheels you swapped out?

they are continental extreme contacts. ultra quite, i had them on my gallardo spyder once.
the wheels are slightly heavier than stock i assume because they are cast wheel versus factory wheels are most likely forged. (correct me if i am wrong).

by far with this wheel choice, i am extremely happy with the fitment and its quality and price.
Niche is one of only companies in US that makes their wheels in house, not from China.
I have heard rumors of many other famous name brand wheel companies (i.e ADV.1) use Niche to make their wheels. its perfect for my daily vehicle!

Niche is made in USA? Thanks for the info. That's good news. I will inquire with a dealer re: the net weight of each, they look quite similar to the Avant Garde 510 wheel I've been stalking. You notice any difference in your MPG, if in fact wheels are heavier?
