Default Audi "celebration" wheels???

A friend of mine bought his A4 with what he thinks are called "celebration" wheels on it. They look similar to the RS4 wheels, but I actually like these a little better. However, when searching online, I cannot find anything by this name anywhere. Is there such thing as Audi "celebration" wheels? And if so, where would I be able to find a set of these in 17"?

Thanks alot.

Default Audi dealer will have them...

They also go by the name of RS4-style 17" rims. They used to come on 2001.5 A4s equipped with quattro and sport package. The 'celebration' name is kind of a misnomer, but many people call them that nonetheless.

These original OEM rims are very expensive if bought from the dealer. Many places (www.achtuning.com, www.edgeracing.com) also sell replicas of these rims in different sizes which are less expensive, but look slightly different, too.

www.achtuning.com has wheels listed as "Rs4 replica"... so these are the same as "celebration" wheels?

Default We just got a bunch of 19" Celebration style in, will sell cheap

We were incorectly shipped 5 sets of Celebration wheels in 19".I don't need anymore wheel styles to keep track of so, we will either send them back or dump them. It's more cost effective to dump them.

Call us if interested.

Default They are the same 9 spoke design

I really like the 18" DTM style better than the replicas if I had to choose.

Default They are slightly different...

the OEM spokes are "flat" from the edge of the rim towards the hub. The replicas curve slightly inward towards the hub. The 17" OEM's weigh ~19 lbs and the replicas ~24. I have the 17" OEM's and be warned, they are very soft and bend easily.

That's what I've noticed also. The ones labeled "celebration" wheels are flat from the edge to the center. That is what I want as opposed to the RS4s which curve inward.
