Default Audi RS3 wheels, what were they thinking?

I love everything about my 2017 RS3 however I just can't live with these hideous wheels any longer
I've tried to ignore the way they look but it's not good. What were Audi thinking? These wheels would look at home or a Passat or golf imo but look terrible on the RS. I don't really want to buy a new set so I'm considering having them sprayed gloss black instead.

They are great for winter wheels. I felt the same with the 19's on my 2016. Ended up putting winter tires on them and bought new wheels for summer. Although we dont have harsh winters at all in Vancouver we do see about 3-4 days of light snow so it almost makes sense to have winter tires for the season.

Purely aesthetic gripe I have, just hate the way they look. We don't have winter as such here in Qatar. Trying to find an image or video or these stock wheels sprayed black. Need to know how they will look before I have them done.

I would spend $10 on a can of plastidip and do one to see how it looks. If you like it get them all done professionally. If not then peel off the plastidip and sell them. Doesnt take long as I did my wife's A3 wheels and for $40 it was a cheap way to get the BBS rims from silver to black.

I like them! Putting on aftermarket rims makes your RS3 look like an A3! No offense to A3 owners, as I also own an A3.

So if I put some RS6 wheels on my Rs3 it would like an A3?

No it would look stupid. Wouldn’t fit anyway. But go ahead and try.

The RS3 rims differentiate it from the S3 and A3. Unless you are an Audi aficionado you can’t tell a lot of difference in the body style. Other than the grille and large exhaust.
