iv just been to a place not far from me that makes aloy wheels to see if they would enlarge the centre of rs4 wheels and was told that they cant its not legal
so i started to ask lots of questions
is it safe......... " umm ......not very safe "
why................. " the wheel is not as strong when you have miled it out and you need a new tuv number stamped on them "
whats the tuv....."its a test that done on all wheels to tell you there safe and if it not on the wheel no insurance on your car "
what about putting a saab wheel on my vectra c "" no that not legal too "
why not "the tuv tests what is safe to go on the car not just the wheel,,,saabs are tested for saab,,vauxhall tested for vauxhall and so on "
what about aftermarket wheels ""there made diffrentlly then centers are made larger and tested that way then have the right size center ring put on for the car"
i still like the rs4 wheels..."if you do get them done pay good money and get it done right or you get vibration prob on the wheels and you can stop it""
do you know where i could get this done ..."yes we can but it only for show not to be used on the road or track"" "and if you say you are going to use on the road we cant do them......wink wink...show only""
is it worth it ""not really with all the spending your doing to get it all done you can buy new ,,but if the wheel come to you cheap maybe it will be and get a letter from the insurance company stating you have them upgrade to the rs4 wheels...if you do have a bump thay cant do anything about the wheels you have told them you have done the rs4 wheel work""
""also get a letter from m,o,t that is ok to do this to the wheel and your covered,,,,,,,they may want to see the wheels to make shore there ok they may want to test them to but i cant see them doing the if they look ok""
so its a goer then ""yes but just do things right and if there is a few of you going to be doing it,, it will make it better for the others as you will have the letter from the m, o, t that will save your *bum in a bump""
hope this is going to be the next mod
