Whether you’re out on a night in town or attending a business meeting, no outfit is complete without a
nice pair of shoes. One could wear the most expensive suit money can buy, but a pair of Old Navy
sandals just wouldn’t fit the occasion. Likewise, many OEM wheels simply do not cut it when it comes to
the respective vehicles they are on. Take a look, for instance, at the stock wheels that came on a B8.5
Audi S4 Premium Plus.
While the wheels are not as ugly as some of the other wheels that come on competitors, it still leaves
much to be desired. In fact, they detract from the rather sleek bauhaus lines that the B8/B8.5 offer and
fail to bring the car even close to its full potential. As a matter of fact, just simply changing the wheels
brings arguably the biggest change to the cars aesthetics, changing it from “not bad” to a potentially
“neck-breaking” show stopper.
Audi S4. We offer countless sets of wheels, and can even pair them up with tyres that can be mounted
and balanced on the wheels before they’re even shipped to your door, so all one would have to do is
bolt them right onto the vehicle. With hundreds of wheels and tyres in stock ready to be shipped at our
warehouse, we can have your car looking great in no time.
With that being said, here is a short list of what we think are the best wheels for your S4. These wheels,
in our opinion, are the ones that complement the design of the vehicle the best and are guaranteed to
fit your vehicle perfectly no matter what look you are going for.
1. FORGESTAR WHEELS
As one of the largest distributors of Forgestar wheels in the world, we sell dozens of sets per
week for a wide variety of cars. Forgestar differs from many manufacturers in that every set is
custom built to the right specs for every application, rather than having one set specification
designed to fit multiple vehicles. In addition, these wheels are rotary forged which means they
are built with strength and light-weight design in mind. As a matter of fact, they weigh
substantially less than most wheels at that price point which makes a huge difference when it
comes to things such as acceleration.
Take a look here at the CF5V’s pictured here. With an aggressive design, they really do make
the S4 “pop” from other cars on the road.
These wheels are also offered in different finishes as well, from silver to gold, which can be further
tailored to your taste. The F14’s are also a great choice, as they offer more of a style similar to that
found on the B7 Audi RS4.
2. HRE WHEELS
HRE has been a major player in the automotive tuning world and has been regarded by many as
the standard. Indeed, they offer everything from flow formed cast wheels to custom 3 piece
options depending on what you are looking for, all built with a high-quality bar to be set.
However, one of the best options they offer for the S4 also happens to be one that is much
more budget-friendly than some of their other choices. The FF01, in our opinion, looks fantastic
on the S4 and it almost seems like the wheels were specifically designed with this car in mind.
The 19×9.5’s shown on our customer’s S4 here fit with the understated yet aggressive lines all
while being an ultra-light weight and strong wheel that can handle even the worst of roads much better
than what a standard cast wheel would do. The body accents Audi does such a good job with are
somehow enhanced with just a set of wheels, and the Michelin Pilot Super Sports we set him up
with offer superior grip when it comes to daily driving conditions.
The wheels can also be had in an assortment of finishes. So whether you’re going for a stealthy batmobile-like blacked-out look, or want something a bit more unique to give the car some more extra flair, we have you covered.
3. VMR WHEELS
VMR and Audi in a way go together like catsup and crisps. For many years now, VMR wheels
have been one of the top choices consumers have gone with on their Audis, and for good
reason. Whether you have a B5, C6, a B8.5, and so on, VMR makes wheels that are designed
very well with Audi’s in mind. Furthermore, they offer cost-effective choices that offer great
quality at every price point whether it’s for a cast wheel or forged.
The V710’s pictured on this black S4 for instance, looks great in the 19×9.5 ET45 option with
Another one of our favourites from VMR is the V803, which offers a simple yet luxurious design that is made using the latest in state of the art flow-forming technology. In our opinion, it is one of the best “bang for the buck” wheels as you get a wheel that is incredibly high-quality and light-weight at a fraction of the cost.
4. Avant Garde Wheels
Avant Garde, abbreviated as AG, has become one of the top players in the aftermarket wheel
world and it is no surprise why. They offer some of the best designs in the industry and like the
others, they offer everything from cast wheels to custom 3 piece options. I personally have ran
AG wheels as well on own personal Audis and Volkswagens and each time did not disappoint.
One of our personal favourites is the M590. Take a gander here yourself at the ones on this red
It also looks great with white, grey, black, or whatever colour S4 you have.
In addition, these custom M590’s in a 20×10 square setup with a brushed grigio finish simply
look out of this world.
We are also big fans of the M510’s, pictured on this S4 in a 20×10 square setup.
5. The Beauty of Choice
Life is all about choice, and to list just five best choices for the S4 would be nearly impossible to
only offers the best of what the industry has to offer.
The Rotiform SPF’s on Chuuey of Audizine’s S4 for example, epitomises everything that is right with the vehicle when paired with the right modifications.
