A good 90% of everyone who wants to tune their car comes up with the idea of installing a new set of alloy wheels. Even before an increase in performance by means of chip tuning or lowering, new alloy wheels are statistically the most popular tuning utensil. Understandable because the standard rims are often not necessarily ugly but very much trimmed to mainstream optics and of course not very individual. What could be more obvious than looking around on the shelves of the tuner and rim manufacturer Vorsteiner to see if there is a fancy alternative to the factory-installed wheelset? The owner of this Audi R8 V10 did just that and swapped the standard rims for a Vorsteiner V-FF 105 wheelset.
More about the Audi R8
If you take a closer look at the rim selection from Vorsteiner, we will understand why! Vorsteiner stands for top quality both in the rim area and in the manufacture of various aerodynamic parts and as you can see there was something suitable for the R8. Of course we would like to show you the whole thing with pictures and have therefore decided to introduce the car to you. In addition to the visually appealing and well-fitting alloy wheels, the R8 has received a few other modifications that we are only aware of based on the photos, unfortunately we do not have any technical information yet.
No matter the main focus of the car is clearly on the already mentioned V-FF 105 wheelset which, as already mentioned, certainly does not miss the standard rims and is an absolute asset to the V10 athlete. I think the car immediately looks more dynamic and sporty, which can never be wrong. We took a closer look at the car and made a few comparisons with the production version and were able to determine one or two changes to the aluminum. What we get directly from the tuner Boden AutoHaus have experienced and recognized for yourself, we provide you with a summary below as usual. Should you notice any further changes, we would be happy if you post them in the "comment box", we will then add them to the post as soon as possible.
