Hi Guys,<P>Need your help again. Does anyone have any pics of a 4 bolt BBS RK & RX wheel? I was looking to up grade from my stock 15in. to 17in., but the only pic's I have found of them any site have been 5 bolt, and since these are open bolt I wanted to see what they look line before I order them.<P>Thanks,<BR>Cheers -<BR>

I think that the RX's look better than the RK's, but I have never seen a 4-bolt. I couldn't find any S40's with these, but here are some A4's.<P><B>BBS RX</B><BR> <IMG SRC="http://pictureposter.audiworld.com/8369/1st_pics0012.jpg"> <P><B>BBS RK</B><BR> <IMG SRC="http://pictureposter.audiworld.com/9951/s4leftrear.jpg"> <P>-Drew

I like the RXs better than the RKs, because the pattern is distinguishable immediately, at first glance. (It has 8 groups-of-two spokes that go radially out. Niiice lookin'. <I>Sharp!</I>) I think the reason I don't like the RK shown above is because you have look, then look again, then really "study" it to see the pattern -- 5 groups-of-two spokes in V-shapes that go radially out, but with U-shapes in between them. Then again, is it 5 U-shaped groups with Vs in between? There are so many different radii down near the hub competing for your eye that it just looks "busy" (to me). <P>I think the RKs are just not as aesthetically pleasing as the RXs, mainly because I had to "hunt" for the pattern to see it. (Could be that I'm just a simpleton. Ha ha.) My two cents... <IMG SRC="http://www.swedespeed.com/ubb/wink.gif">
