Charles, for me it depends on what options I have for winter tires.  If I were to only have one set of wheels, they would be 17's.  Since I use my stock 15's for winter tires, I use the 18's the rest of the year and am very happy with them.

Both of those wheels (and the CH's) look very nice IMO, but I am a big fan of larger wheels as they fill the wheelwells a little better.  If I had the money, I would also get a set of 19's for shows.

yeah I'm all set for winter with my stock 15s and snow tires so no problems there. I think an 18" summer wheel would be perfect, although there are a couple of 17s I would consider since they appear larger, like the 17" RCs and the RS4s.

18" with studs for winter ;) BMW's, Jags, Mercs, and a host of other cars roll 18 and 19" stock year round.

it has an Audi centercap and has a little cleaner look.

well, looks like the guy selling the RCs let them go to someone local to him.... grrrrrrr. :evil:

So at this moment in time I'm seeing a set of CH wheels in my future. :)

(BTW... looks like the poll for this thread is no longer relevant, and I can't seem to edit or delete it so would someone with "the powah" please delete the poll?)

EDIT: Yup. CH it is. Talked via e-mail with the seller today and we'll be doing the transaction after the 1st. Pics forthcoming.......... :D
