Thanks. I'm trying to see if my 17" Volkswagen Joda wheels will work for a winter setup. They are 17" x 7 ET54 I believe.
For reference, I installed my 19x8 et 50 Cadiz wheels off my old golf R. With 255/50r19 rubber.

Due to the offset they needed 10mm spacers up front to clear the break caliper. The rears had lots of room.

I'm running 10mm spacers up front and 15mm in the back for aesthetics.

You will probably need spacers up front as well with an et of 54.

I'm looking at snow tires and might put them on my factory wheels so that I can buy other wheels for the summer tires. It's tough to picture what wheels may look good, there're chrome, black, etc., that all look pretty sweet but I'm wondering if anyone has pictures of theirs I can take a look at. Anyone have aftermarket wheels installed?

I'm thinking about getting some 19" soon. I was originally thinking silver because they always look good and classy, and are the safe bet, but my eye has also been on some gunmetal wheels I've come across. The problem is my car is platinum grey, so I can't decide if gunmetal wheels will clash, because they are close to platinum grey, or look pretty cool.
