Lightweight. Heritage. Quality Design. I've been enjoying these wheels on my 2004 Audi A4 Ultra Sport for about a month now. The performance over my stock wheels is night and day. These wheels dropped at least fifteen pounds per corner and keeping everything in OEM size (18x8 w/235/40/18), the car accelerates much better.
Roads are not an issue in my normal routine, but I have driven these on some severely damaged city roads and had no issues. I was careful, as you should be with light weight wheels, and everything was fine. At this weight I would be careful, but they are very strong.
The paint finish is very subtle. The bright silver paint is really almost like a gunmetal in most lights. I wasn't expecting that, but really enjoy it. The wheels shine nicely without being obnoxious, really biased towards racing car style which I love. Very low key.
Cleaning has been ok. Multi spoke wheels with exposed lugs are not the easiest to clean. A great tip is to put a layer of wax on them and that makes life easier. The right cleaning tool also helps. Not difficult, but not as easy as a five spoke where you just wash and wipe.
Overall just a great wheel, perfect for both daily driving and track days.
