      Hello All,

      After getting these, my wifes hours were cut at work. So these have to go. I managed to return the tires thanks to Bridgestones 30-day return policy. Going back to my stockers.... I paid $1600 for the rims only. I had tires mounted on them for about 200-230 miles, that's it. I'll also include some brand new Aluminum Hubcentric rings if you are mounting them up on your VW.

      These are Genuine OEM Audi wheels, these are *not* aftermarket. They are in like new condition as you can see in the pictures. Again, only 200-230 miles on them tops.

      These are optional Audi Wheels for the 2012 Audi A6.

      part number: 4G0-601-025-E
      19x8.5 ET45

      PRICE LOWERED!!! $1000 SHIPPED!!! or $890 pickup in Metro Detroit area. Willing to meet reasonable distance.

      Good question... They are all already packaged, boxed and sealed. I can guess with the packing material when I get home. They are not "forged" rims, but they are OEM Audi.

      Do they come with TPMS sensors?

      2012 Passats, GTI, etc.. And Audis don't use the old TPMS sensors on the rims anymore. They use a better ABS ring for TPMS, eliminating the need for one. You can although mount your own if you are going to mount them on another car that requires the separate sensors.

      Hubcentric aluminum rings, brand new are Included.

      If you could that would be great, would like to stay close to the stock wheel weight.

      You are going up in size so they will be heavier no matter what you go with.

      Anyways... They weighed in at 32 lbs packed up in boxes with packing material and tape. So I would guess they are probably around 26lbs.

      They're gorgeous alright! But I'm about to pay for fog lights to be installed on my partner's SEL. And I'm afraid of what 19" would do to ride comfort...

      Actually if you ask here.. 19" does affect ride comfort much at all... The stock suspension is so soft on the car it doesn't make that much of a difference. Now the people that have changed springs, they will feel a big difference.

      No, I hate ebay... first they take 3% from PayPal, which is owned by eBay.. THEN they take another percentage from your sale, double whammy.

      1) Does the stock center cap fit these wheels?
      2) Why are hubcentric rings needed? What is the difference in the hub size?
      3) are there any marks from the tire machine when the tires were installed/removed?

      Thanks

      1. No.. But you can get these and stick on Audi or plain caps, very high quality: http://www.brazilshopping.com/store/wheelcenters5.html

      2. VWs bore is 57.1... Audi moved to 66.6 for 2012. Aluminum rings bring them down to 57.1

      3. There are no marks on the face at all that I see, see pictures as those are right before I boxed them up. There are marks on the barrel, but you don't see those as those would be "inside" covered by the tire, not visible.
