    As usual, it depends. Why is this the same answer as normal?

    First issue, the original wheel was made of a soft alloy that deformed if you hit a pothole or some other obstruction. After much cost to replace wheels, Audi released a "Tough" wheel that survived the rigors of Australian roads much better. Exactly the same to look at but a different part number. You'd be lucky to give away the soft wheels, I have one that I use as a hose reel.

    Secondly, fitment. The RS wheels are ET20 offset. Thats why the RS has huge guards. If they are genuine you'll have the tyres sticking out 20mm past the guards on any B5 or similar. These are not wheels that you can bolt on to anything.

    Value, a new wheel costs about $2500 each from Audi. A "tough" wheel is about $250 second hand, ball park figure, but they could be much cheaper if no one wants them or much more for a mint set that will restore an RS to factory specs.

    Beware, there are many copies out there that are sized to fit the base models. If these are a bolt on and fit under your guards then they are not genuine RS wheels.

    USP = Ultra Sport which is what the Americans called the B6 A4 S line.

    I therefore suspect these wheels are an 18x8 ET43 but with a bit of luck the seller can update his thread with full/complete details including size, offset and maybe even part number.

    As to what they are worth, I'd be guessing something like $5-800 if the tyres are reasonable.

    All the info is behind the plastic centre cap. The part No. for the SOFT RS wheel is 8D0 601 025T, thats the one you don't want. Also the offset (ET) is there as well plus country of manufacture etc. As to any other information about other models that have a similar wheel, some one else will know. Afraid I have no idea.

    Remove a wheel and take a photo of the part number from the back of the wheel.

    The genuine RS wheel part number is on the front of the hub recess, no need to remove the wheel if that is what it is.
