      So I ended up going with the BE wheels in gunmetal. Nice getting the summer tires back on after driving around on those pillow feeling winter snows tires!

      Those are spectacular, gunmetal looks great with the white. What size did you go with? I hope you didn't put your winters on too quick given your location.

      Thanks! They are 19's, I sold the stock 19's but kept the stock tires which I used with these new wheels. I deff like the gunmetal finish.

      I actually only drove 2k miles on my snow tires, I put them on in November cause we had a snow storm but would have liked to have waited till dec... Oh well...

      Those look great I had OZ Hydras on my MK4 R32 and they were simple 5 spokes easy to clean, wish they made hydras still. I think I'd prefer your wheels if the rims didn't have the bump in but that makes them unique. Enjoy them.

      I was in Roseville MN for training last week and I can see why the summers went on Pretty warm yesterday. Here in Seattle we are expecting some more light snow this week, it hasn't stuck around though and I'm thinking about putting the cheese graters and summers back on to save my winters. As its mainly just wet & cold but warm by the afternoon.

      HAHAHA yesss! the cheese graters! lol so true. Once you get to the point int he spring when the snow just melts and you're hitting 40-50'sF it's time to get the snows off - they just melt away in the warm weather...

      I deff was looking for something simple to clean and unique. They don't have that shine or bling as silver rims do, but they have their own flair, lol, I had the car parked out front work which is downtown and people were stopping to look at the car, so I figured I did something right

      Here today we're sitting at almost 80 and more to come! Enjoy the sping...

      Weather here is 30s to 50s and it seems to change day to day, I think the Pirellis aren't as soft as the Blizzaks as they are holding up well at 4000 miles or so of use but I think I could live with the Summers unless it dumps as its mostly early morning ice and snow just seems to be an occasional dusting.



      My old Hydras, a classic 5 spoke with a little twist, excuse the just washed rusty brakes...

      Like your wheels. Any wheel that is easy to clean and looks great too is my kind of wheels.

      Me2 likes v. much!!! Thinking of getting them for
      the Dunlop Wintersports if they resume production
      after last year's hiatus and winter with the slippery Blizzaks.


      Malaysian products tend to be of good quality, at least I have
      always had the best of luck with their electronics.

      Ok, I must say those are the best looking wheels that I have ever seen on an S4. What brand are they if you don't mind me asking?

      Wow thanks man! Pictures don't really do them justice - I think they look better in person. If the care were about 1 inch lower they would look perfect...
