RE: 90 Quattro Wheels

My CQ also suffered from kaka-looking wheels when it was still owned by
the previous owner.   Right before the Audi Card Warranty expired, he 
took the car to the dealer and complained about the wheels.  To his surprise, 
the dealer replaced them with a new set!!  He was happy and now I'm happy.

I didn't know that the Audi Card covered such things.

Some 90q20vs came with the Speedline 15x7 rims, with (I think) an offset
of ET43, and a tahr size of (again, I think, no, really, I do)
205/50-15. Our very own Bob D'Amato would know these numbers, as might
Paul Royal, both of whom suffer from their 20v cars having twice as many
doors as are appropriate.

The 1990-1991 Coupe quattro came with the Speedline 15x7 rims as
standard, but with an offset of ET37, and a tahr size of 205/60-15, or
195/65-15 if the original owner opted for the all-season tahrs.

In either size, the Speedlines are notorious for the clearcoat on the
outer rim peeling and looking like kaka.
