Yeah they look good. You know what I actually prefer the P1 wheels over the tear drop. I think the original design of the wheels works best with the original design of the car. However I have tear drops on mine becuase it just means its a P2 when anyone sees it.

What I want to do is put JTS wheels on mine next like this

Thats right. BBS CH's and soon to be on my Bella.
Not holding much hope waiting for the 18-19 8c wheels.

Would love to see more pics of the BBS CH's on the GTVs if there are more.

Re: Gtv Rims Wheels

what offset do the Brera/159 use? - if it's quite high then you can fit the Brera S wheels using hub adapters.

They are not that expensive really. Under 2k for 19's or just over 1.5k for 18's. Will do doing the new suspention/springs set up at the same time.

Re: Gtv Rims Wheels

Quality has its price.
Teledials 17" are around 11.5 kg. BBS CH 18" 12kg. OZ ultraleggera 18" 8j 8kg
Can't find the weight of Superturismo wrc and gt.
And what is the weight of Gold's MAK wheels?

Superturismo GT 18x8 = 11.4kg
BBS CH 18x8 = 10.9kg

..according to wheelweight.net

I've heard the GTA tele's are 12.5kg so the GTV ones might be more than 11.5

I think they'd look great. (in 18?)

Although they're Audi reps they're look generic enough to get away with
