Rotiform OZR wheels + Toyo tyres = happy face
If you’ve been following my RS4 build, you’ll know I’ve been trying to choose some wheels for what seems like an eternity; truth is there just hasn’t been anything that’s tickled my particulars. Then, bang out of nowhere along comes three wheels I love at once from Rotiform: the OZR, BUC-M and LAS-R. Probably the hottest trio since Charlie’s Angels.
Anyway, after much deliberation, I decided on a set of 8.5×19-inch OZRs in satin black. I love how they look tough and intricate, yet modern and classic all at once, a bit like myself (what have you been smoking? Jules). I love ‘em! So, a big thanks to Parm and the boys at Car Audio Security for their awesome service and getting them sent out so quick. If you want Rotiforms and want them quick, they’re the place to go!
It may have taken me a while to choose the rims, but choosing rubber was an easy choice – I went for a trusty set of Toyo Proxes T1 Sport tyres in a 255/35. These were on my stock RS4 Le Mans wheels, and they were great in both the wet and the dry. They were delivered in no time, which left me with one little job: getting them fitted up.
Now I don’t know about you, but I hate getting tyres fitted to new wheels, as it just seems a lot of places don’t take a lot of care of your wheels. So, when a friend of mine said: “there’s only one man I’d trust with my new wheels and that’s Ryan at Protyre Bristol” I knew exactly where to go, and I am glad I did as he looked after them as if they were his own. So, cheers fella!
Right, back to wheels. Fitment – I went for an ET25 with a 15mm spacer all round so they sit a bit wider and there’s still some room to play around with. And I am stoked with the results; I think they look great. Anyway, that’s enough of my jibber-jabba, I’ll let the photos do the talking…
