Did anyone figure out what kind of wheels are in post #1? They look like Antera wheels. Not sure if they still make them but Antera used to make a very similar wheel with a polished stainless lip.

There was a set for sale here recently. Search for Nova on the site.

You would be best off to start a new thread with your desire to buy a set to get more visibility.

Not even close. They're EVOX RM4s with the centercaps removed.

EVOX
I wouldn't go so far to say they are not even close. These wheels are "not even close."

You would probably need adapters to run them.

I'm a wheel junkie and to me they're light years away. Sure, the Ronal Teddybear is even more divergent, but still...

The HRE has a stepped lip, the EVOX is reverse mount.
The spokes on the HRE split much earlier and are more convex.
The HRE has more permiter bolts.
The bolt area on the HRE is smooth and meant to be exposed.

They actually had a complete set of those Panda Bear wheels at a car parts store in my area that closed in the recent past, they are girly wheels in my opinion, and would refuse to drive any car they were on, but to me they were also a "throwback" because I remember when they were common to see on a girls ford escort or other compact car when I used to cruise when I was like 17-18 years old in the late eighties. They were selling for like $100 for four and I remember when they were like $125 a wheel. I could see my niece liking them for sure even now a days LOL.

I can't believe this has turned into a Ronal Bear wheel thread, but I believe the Bear wheels came out around 93-94. I was always looking at the tirerack ads back then in the car mags, and I used to shake my head at the bear wheels. They weren't around for long, though.....thankfully!

Looks great, Quad!

Do you have any pics from the back?

I still think S4 wheels look best on the SE body style. I don't like them on the S4.

Thanks SE. I need to take a good picture of the rear. I havebn't driven the car in a couple of weeks. When I get a good shot, I'll post it up here. One thing I have noticed is that the tread pattern of these Vredestein tires doesn't make them look as wide as they really are.

still not a great picture of the rear. I really need to shoot it with a wide angle lens to capture the real feel of it. this is just another camera phone shot.

WOW!!!!!!!

what is involved to customize these wheels? Love how they fill out so nice. Did you have spacers/adapters to bring them out or did the 11" mod bring the wheel out? Did you also widen the fronts?

Gorgeous...
