[A4] More Wheels

Yeah....we must be very different.  To me, wheels are one of the most important looks about a car!
The wrong wheel on the right car makes it look like the WRONG CAR. <grin>    And in some rare 
cases, the right set of wheels on an odd car can make it look rather nice...within reason.

Wheels have the ability to make a car look stylish and aggressive and at the same time have the 
ability to make the same car look dowdy and silly.

That being said, I wouldn't go with 15" anything on the A4....no matter the style.

But, while I am a picky mofo about wheels, I tend to stay away from overly large wheels....I'm 
pretty conservative in the regard.  No 3-peice bolts everywhere...no chrome....no $3000 wheels.  I 
like simplicity and timeless styles.
