original wheels just had a refurb done, done a few sets for different cars now and shadow chrome always works out well, has a really nice shine to them in different lights due to the spokes of the Pretoria.

Any pics?

R8 front wheels all around, powder coated superwet black (as are tailpipe tips), no suspension mods or spacers, 8.5x19, ET42, Conti ExtremeContact DWS06 245/35/19 (instead of ExtremeContact Sport which I had problems defending against hydroplaning with, tho much more gorgeous 😓).  Only thing left is a tune once warranty expires.

Is anyone running 20s  and lowered ? 

The R, at its price point, is almost perfect.  I've added a wider rim and slightly beefier tires and I will tell you, it's MORE perfect in terms of stability and some of the squirreliness due to oversteer, IMO.  20's on this car, IMHO, would be grotesque.  As for lowering, I lowered my previous A3 Sportback, and after hundreds of dollars spent on alignments, it still chewed up my rubber.  We are entering an age where the car is no longer considered a "horse" but a utility.  Why f*ck with perfection?
