These wheels were imported on a Euro-spec Ur-Q that had a full ABT tuning package.  I bought them about 3 years ago, mounted tires on them, and never even drove on them in my now-parting-out CQ project.

The specs.  17x8, ET 35, 5x112 bolt pattern. They were cast in July of 1991, making them a period-correct aftermarket wheel for the Ur-quattro, V8q, S2, etc. They weigh in at 23.5 lbs each... not terrible, but not too light either.  For reference, Rota Slipstreams (one of the lightest tuner wheels out there) in 17x7.5 weigh 20lbs exactly.

The finish is gunmetal grey. There are minor blemishes and the wheels are a bit dusty.  One has slight discoloration of the finish from being stored in a plastic bag. They all include Audi-logo center caps and brand new chrome valve stems.  

The tires are currently mounted but could be dismounted if you want.  They are 3-year old, zero-mile Bridgestone Potenza S03 Pole Position... possibly the best max-performance tire, but definetly in the top two. Check Tirerack's review on these... sticky as all hell!  They are sized 225-45ZR17 and of course have full tread depth left.

I want $600 firm for the wheels, $900 with tires included.  The tires cost almost $700 by themselves plus mount + balance, so its a pretty good deal. 

While I am very fond of these wheels and tires, I am forced to sell and will consider offers.  I will NOT consider trades, unless you want to trade me money!  :P  I will gladly ship the wheels at the buyer's expense using DHL (reasonable prices)
