    Hi All

    I currently have the standard 17" Alloys fitted and wanted something bigger
    so got myself a set of 18" Fenix Alloys, but now i'm not too sure on them.

    Looking for other ideas on 18s.

    I like the Big Five Spoke Audi wheels but they seem to be silly money.
    Anyone got any other Audi 18s fitted?

    I love the rims on my 2012 Exeo but as with any low profile tyres it leaves the rims susceptible to curb damage. :cry:

    On a clean car they look great anyway! ;)

    I agree with you, the tyres that were on mine when I bought it were rubbish for rim protection, I needed a new tyre on the rear and decided to buy a pair as the other was low. I put Goodyear Eagle F1 Asymmetric 3s on and I must say I'm impressed with the amount of protection they give. Compared to the cheap budgets that are on the front which seem to be flush if not less than flush allowing the rim to almost protrude its a massive improvement.

    Mine when I went to look at it and took it for a test drive.

    I do like those, but they all seem to be trashed when I find a set.
    Decided to refurb and fit my Fenix wheels.
    Just need to decide on a colour now

    Grizz,

    I have a set of the Audi 5 spoke alloys for sale (have been living in my shed for about a year!).

    They look like this but would probably need a refurb:

    If you're interested I can look them out tonight and post some photos. Think the tyres have plenty rubber on them also.

    What's your budget for wheels?

    I was looking for a set of those, but you're too far from me.
    Now, keeping the Fenix 18s I already have.
    but thanks for the offer

    No problem. If you change your mind a courier is only about £30-35.

    I've actually downsized from 18" to 16", I wanted more ride comfort and cheaper tyres (I use mine for work so expect to do a lot of mileage)
    Plus she now looks even more of a sleeper [B)]
