2018 Audi RS5 on 20″ BD Wheels BD-F18

In the last few months, Blaque Diamond has been putting a lot of focus into the Audi scene. With an array of new models hitting the showroom floor, we had to take the bull by the horns and start with the top dog, the Audi RS5. If you thought the S5 packed a mean punch, just wait until you feel what the steroid-induced RS5 can do. With a 444-hp 2.9L V6 and 443 lb-ft tq, you can expect the RS5 to get you from 0-60 in a blistering 3.5 seconds. Not too shabby for a car priced under 75K for the base model.

Aesthetically, the car looks beautiful. The front grill really shows off how aggressive this car is. Yet, with all the aggression, the sleek lines of the side profile show how classy Audi can be while trying to kill you! The large dual exhausts in the rear really set the tone for the car. Although many may say the V8 version of the RS was a better car, the V6 really hold it’s own in terms of performance and sound. Letting off the accelerator in the car is something similar to the Jag F-Type with all the popping and burbling.

Aside from all the positive things about the car, the one major drawback is the wheel choice. Although the Audi engineers put in a lot of work trying to perfect this car, they probably took some days off when it came to wheel design. That’s where Blaque Diamond comes into the picture. For the RS5 we knew that it deserved something that would compliment the sportiness of the coupe, yet has the elegant styling we’ve seen for years coming from Audi.

Our RS5 is fitted with our top of the line offering, the BD-F18’s in Brushed Silver. Performance plays a huge role in the RS, so this lightweight durable wheel was an ideal choice. To firmly get all that power to the ground we went with a 20×10 square set up wrapped in meaty 275/30/20’s. The results were something truly special. With a wider stance, the new RS5 really demands attention. The color combination of the Brushed Silver compliments the brilliant Nardo Grey so perfect, you kind of have to ask yourself, why didn’t Audi do this from the factory?

Features of the BD-F18 Wheels

The BD-F18 is lighter, stronger, and more stylish than the competition. Whether you’re going for balls to wall performance or you are looking for that unique staggered style, the BD-F18 offers the best of both worlds. With a deep concave profile and pocketed 5 spoke design, you are sure to make a statement no matter which side they go on. The BD-F18 also features an exclusive Diamond Center Cap you won’t see anywhere else.
