Thanks to @nee777.a2 my TDI Sport with 16x7 A1 wheels and 215/45-16 tyres.

A slightly more comfortable ride than the 205/40-17 but still sporty and a bit pointy.
I have the Audi A1 10-spokes wheels also shod with 215/45-16 tires and agree with you completely.
The 17" "RS4" original wheels were too harsh, great grip but tiresome on extended trips.
However, there is a noticable difference in "responsive-ness /peppy-ness" with the large/wide A1 summer shoes and the very light forged 15" pepperpots that I use for winter shoes. I expect the difference in un-sprung weight is upwards of 5kg per "shoe" and I will try to remember to compare the weights this spring when I change them.
I would also be curious to know the difference in weight between your 5-spoke A1 wheels and my 10-spoke A1 wheels...

So - this may be the wrong place to ask but what is a set of the QT wheels in nice condition worth? Is there much of a market for them?

A set went in the last week on Facebook for £170. A bit scuffed but I've seen a lot worse.

The 5 spoke I have weigh 9.1kg according to this: https://www.original-felgen.com/8xa601025a8z8.html. You might be able to find yours on there.

Incidentally, I have noticed a slight tyre rub on the left wheel on the wheel arch liner on full left lock.

Thx! No wheel rub that I have noticed, but then again I tend not to use full lock as there is ususally lots of manuvering room where I live in Norway.
It looks like the 10 spoke weigh 9.9kg according to your reference source: https://www.original-felgen.com/8x0601025bb8z8.html and the forged pepperpots weigh 5.7kg https://www.original-felgen.com/8l0601025ez17.html.

I will add the weights of the complete wheel + tire for both later in the spring...

Good wheel reference site that.

Don't understand why they don't have A2 wheels listed though, seems strange?

Today @Menno took it upon himself to fit my summertyres to the S-line 9 spoke wheels. I chose for the michelin primacy 4 s2 in the dimensions 205/45/17. Although the rims had some unbalance in them, Menno did an amazing job.
In short, I love the tyres in combination with the wheels, so smooth. Menno, many thanks again!
I know I have to wash the car soon, but waiting for better wheather conditions😜

Try searching for posts by zipnjeff on here. He had A8 monoblocks fitted with air ride.

If you want to send me the offset and dimensions of them I can try to work out whether you will have the space for adapters or whether you’ll have to drill them.
