I know this seems like a silly point, but have you checked out the Audi
website? They do some pretty nice wheels, and you can buy the RS4 ones for
around 450 US ea (bit pricey I know, but really nice wheels...).

Subject: [A4] Suggestions for new wheels?


I've been riding for the last 3.5 years on Ronal R-7 wheels 17x8 and I'm
dissatisfied with the ruggedness of these wheels. Up here in Montreal, we
have our fair share of roads with cracks and potholes and these wheels are
now bent beyond repair. In fact, I had them restored to their original shape
last year, which cost me some $ of course, but after one summer, they're in
bad shape once again. 

 don't want to make the same mistake twice and I want to buy a new set of
wheels, something light but more solid this time. What brands can I count
on? I checked the tirerack site and they have some nice BBS and Oz wheels.
Their price range varies quite a bit (BBS goes from ~$200 to $600+). What
price should I aim for good quality? do I have to buy forged wheels or are
good quality cast wheels sufficient? I don't do any track, I just like to
push it a bit on normal roads.

All suggestions appreciated. Thanks!
