Wheels/Tires & other Repairs
I'm about to adopt a previously owned 93 90CS (75k) that has some accident
damage to the left (drivers side) front suspension and fender. I'll be
replacing the fender, front bumper cover, and headlamp assembly. If anyone
has good sources for these parts, I'd appreciate the references.
Parts from a donor 93 90 will supply the suspension parts. However, I have
to decide what to do with respect to the wheels and tires. It currently has
factory wheels and size tires, but the one is ruined, and I really don't like
the looks of the factory wheels anyway. I do like the looks of the ten spoke
audi q wheels of that vintage, and this would maintain the authenticity of
the car. What is the least costly source of a set of the Audi ten spoke
wheels, and what size tires should I run with them?
I run 205/45 16s on my 88 90q, but don't know that I want that harsh of a
ride on the wife's 90CS, nor do we need the handling associated with the low
One other question. The car is pearlescent (?) white. Has anyone tried
painting the black trim (front, rear, sides). I'm not sure, but I think that
it might look better painted to match the body. I have to paint the front
bumper cover anyway, so perhaps I could have the other trim painted at the
same time. Any thoughts on the aesthetics?
I'd appreciate BTDT or other advice. Thanks
93 90CS (soon)
