Thread: B7 RS4 - New wheels

    Default B7 RS4 - New wheels

    So finally got around to installing these rims that I bought from Damo (800888 - whatever happened to him?) around 5-6 years ago. When I got them they were in pretty bad shape and sat in my shed all that time. Damo had them on his Avant which was wrapped at the time and it looked amazing



    Anyway, went thru the whole re-furb process myself which was time consuming but heaps of fun and generally happy with how they turned out.

    However, upon installing them on the car over the weekend, realised the colour is just wrong. Plan now is to plasti-dip them in matte black to see if I like it, if not, back to stock.

    Great job on the refurb mate, but agree - I think black or silver is the way to go. Maybe some more low to emphasise those guards?

    I've changed wheels on all my cars but just can't get past the OEM 19's on the B7 RS4.

    So plasti dipped the rims and am ecstatic with the look, so much better. The dip itself, my first go, it was only OK to be honest, but will do for now.

    Intention is to (one day) strip them back properly and re-finish in matte black.
