Up for sale is a set of 17x8 Kosei K1-TS wheels with 225/45 BF-Goodrich "G-Force Sport" tires. The wheels are in 9.9/10 condition with no scrapes, no nicks, dings, etc. There is one missing valve stem cap and a tiny scratch in the inside-lip finish of one wheel from a previous cleaning encounter. 5x112, ET 35. Perfect fit for a great number of Audis from the mid 80s up to 08.
The wheels are an ultra-light design weighing 15.4 lbs each - quite a reduction from the 28.6 lb Avus wheels that came on my S4. They made a palpable difference in acceleration/handling/ride as the overall reduction was 52 lbs of rotating/unsprung weight. I would say that they made a bigger difference in acceleration than my lightweight flywheel did... and much easier to bolt to the car LOL!
The tires have seen one driving event plus 4000 miles of highway use. They have a uniform .220-.240" of tread depth (roughly 7.5/32") and have plenty of life in them. The car was routinely aligned on a Hunter rack so they have never seen ridiculous camber or toe situations.
This setup is close to $1400 on tirerack, and considering the excellent condition and low wear, I am asking $800.
Attached are pictures of them mounted on my former S4. I haven't taken the time to take separate pics of them now that the car is gone.
Also available is a set of used Hankook R-compound Z212 C50 tires in 225/45-17 if you want to make a killer track package.
Any questions, feel free to email richard at billzcat1.com. Shipping is no problem but is not included in the price. Hubcentric rings, center caps, "tuner" lug bolts and "locking" lug nuts with tool (I chose to run studs) are all included.
