I'd kill for a set of OEM 18s. I'm going to run a set of 245/40-18s from my RS6 until I wear them out; I do a lot of driving from upstate NY to the Philly area and expect the PA2 Michelins to only make it about half way through the winter. At that point I'm thinking of 225/45-18s since I'm in the snow belt.

Anyone want to sell a set of OEM 18s?
