Default Pie plate monoblock alloys NOS Ebay

Just spotted these,
Doesn't say anything about centre caps.
Only 16" - is that normal, thought they were 18's on the W12?
No affiliation...

Ebay
Note - it's an auction, so they may look cheap at the moment...

Nice wheels but I think the A8 tag is a misnomer, 16" is really small!

I'd tend to agree that this is a misnomer, and I can't see how 16" rims would fit on an A8 - and the design is different from the W12 monoblocs for the '8, which I currently have on my S8 as winters (see attached), and which are 18s, not 16s.

Having said that, these do look like a nice set of wheels, just not for an '8

They do look good on the 8, I may be tempted to get a set one day.

D2s did come with 16s in other markets - just not in the UK. The PF S8's winter wheels were 16".

These are shown in Etka for 98-02 models so would fit with the twin-piston calipers on A8s. They wouldn't fit with Brembos though obviously.

They were indeed as I found out when initially investigating them for my first S8.
In the end I bought a set of 17" Avus wheels, which I think were initially from an S4, they fitted perfectly.

Sadly they were not useable when I changed to the FL, just too tight over the front Brembos so that the wheel weights caught. Though I suppose with thin spacers they would have been OK.
But it gave me an excuse to get a set of 20's for summer use and repurpose the OEM 18's for winter.

Please let me know if you ever consider selling these mighty wheels. I would certainly be interested.

There's a set in Germany for not much more money.
