New Rotiform rims and Toyo tyres, happy days…
It’s fair to say mods on the RS4 have been pretty slow, well non-existent of late. But, that’s all about to change as the coming months will see the bodywork being freshened up, a wrap, and as you can probably guess from these photos some new wheels and fresh rubber. The wheels have literally just arrived from our good friends over at Car Audio & Security, so I’ve not had a chance to test fit them yet, but thought I’d crack them open for a few photos.
So, why the F has it taken me so long to sort out new wheels? The truth is, I am really picky when it comes to rims, as I am not someone who swaps wheels every other month. Also, I’ve been on the lookout for something that was kind of motorsport-esque, not fully blown like a set of bright white or gold rally wheels but a bit more DTM-ish. So, I was super happy when I saw Rotiform release a collection of monoblock wheels that were a hat tip to motorsport wheels of days gone by, but with a modern twist.
My biggest issue was making a decision, as I was pretty torn between the OZR, BUC-M and LAS-R. All amazing wheels, but in the end, I went for the OZR option in an 8.5×19-inch. I love the intricacy of the spokes, the satin black finish and especially like the centrelock style centre caps, so I can hide up those rather unsightly looking lock-in wheel bolts.
I have to say a big thanks to Parm at Car Audio & Security for getting the OZRs out to me so quick, as once the decision was made, I wanted them ASAP and they arrived in less than 24 hours. Luckily CAS carry a huge amount of Rotiform in stock, so if you want your Rotiforms and you want them quick, the boys in Hayes are the ones to call. And, even if you want something that’s not in stock or a custom wheel on special order, no one will get it sorted quicker. They also offer some great deals and 0% finance on some Rotiform options if you want to spread the cost, so if you want some, get to it!
Obviously, wheels without rubber aren’t going to go very far, so I got online and ordered some fresh 255/35/19 Toyo Proxes T1 Sport tyres. I am currently running these on my stock RS4 Le Mans wheels, and they’ve been amazing performers in both the wet and dry. So, I am looking forward to getting them fitted to the OZRs and hitting the twisties. Anyway, until next month…
