Finally got my 17x8 superleggeras with Continental ExtremeContact Sports 235/45/17 installed. What an amazing upgrade!
Thanks to this thread for the great info (in particular 3L3M3NT's posts since we have the same wheels :))
Those wheels look good on that car. VW should’ve offered 17 inch wheels on those cars, the 18’s were a definite problem.

Agreed, looks great. Any additional parts or modifications needed to make these fit?

Just looked up specs on those wheels. 15.5 Lbs per wheel .... I know what I'm getting for my next wheels. What suspension are you running ?

Thanks! No spacers right now but there seems to be a little bit of rubbing at front at full turn

Just stock for now but I will change that soon. Probably SHS coilovers or maybe even v3s.
