'Bendy' RS6 19" alloys

Yes, buckled would be a better term for it...

It's due to two main factors I'm lead to believe.. the compound of which the wheel is made.. Alloy is softer than steel and also the sort of profile tyres being used. Some tyres can actually give strenght to the rims, but too thin a profile and this means the rims can suffer damage from road imperfections.

I don't think that this will develop into anything big like the RS4, but we'll have to sit back and see

You've got to bear in mind RS6 owners are more likely to check too?

I mean how many other performance car drivers check to see if their wheels are buckled - even slightly?

I'm not saying they have bent wheels too but I can't imagine Audi would be damm stupid enough to repeat the same problem that cost them so much.
