A5 19" Rims on a 335 vert?

What do you guys think... would this be possible?

From...


...To


Does anyone know where to get them? Would the fitting match? Are there replicas anywhere? They are called 19" 5-arm Y-design alloy wheel in the "Build your own audi" webpage (which means that they are original audi parts).

Yeah, my photochop skills aren't that good, but you get the idea

I'll try Do you know where I can find a montego blue which has the same camera angle?

But the question remains, are the audi rims physically compatible with the bmw bolt layout?

you might be able to make it work... the rims look awesome... you'll have to find out what offset the A5 rims are.

I personally don't like the A5 wheels and think it's odd to have Audi wheels on a Bimmer... call me weird.

Those are the A5 S-Line package rims, and would probably be pretty expensive. Not really worth it IMO. For the price you can probably find a comparable set of aftermarket rims that are lighter, and more unique. (Plus you won't have to deal with people asking why you have Audi A5 wheels on your BMW.)

Don't cross the streams.

I have a couple sets of rims for my vert, but somehow still feel the orginal SP rims fit the best. The A5's are definitely out of character.

I'm going to be honest - I think I would pass. There have to be better wheels for the money? I personally like a turbine style wheel on the verts, similar to what Hammann demos (though without all the garish accoutrements that come with the complete kit). I also like the Breyton CS and the Velocity 714 style (but without the rivets). Those Morr Alloys would be nice too, but a little spendy for me.
