I have a 2002 Tornado Red GTI, and plan on having it lowered via H&R coilovers, but other than that, the exterior is bone stock from the factory--i like the look of a nice clean car, lower than stock, with some nice wheels, not too into bodykits, etc etc...ive narrowed my choices to 5 different wheels, please give your input, keeping in mind that the car is red and it is a GTI, oh yeah, id like the car to handle decently too, mainly look+handling, so here are the choices--
**19x8 OZ Superleggera (light grey painted)
235/35YR19 BFGoodrich g-Force T/A KDW-2 tires
$2,808.75 shipped
**18x8 BBS RC (bright silver painted)
225/40WR18 Continental ContiExtreme Contact tires
$2,390.00 shipped
**19x8.5 BBS CH (bright silver painted)
235/35YR19 BFGoodrich g-Force T/A KDW-2 tires
$2,584.12 shipped
**18x8.5 Mille Miglia Cup 3S (bright silver painted)
225/40WR18 Continental ContiExtreme Contact tires
$1,511.95 shipped
**19x8.5 Mille Miglia Cup 3S (bright silver painted)
235/35YR19 BFGoodrich g-Force T/A KDW-2 tires
$2,099.45 shipped
Those are the choices, basically it comes down to either 18 inch or 19 inch wheels, and the style that looks best....Everyone knows the Superleggera's, the RC's are the wheels that come on the 337's, the CH's come on the brand new Passat W8's (i believe?), and the Mille Miglia's are the Porsche lookalike wheels, for anyone who doesnt know these wheels....cast your vote, and give opinions!!!

Do 19" wheels and 235 tires fit in on the MK IV's

I thought the beggest we could go was 18" and 225, otherwise you would be scraping..

Ok, I'm biased, mine are 18 x 8.5 Mille Miglia Cup 3s w/ Toyo Proxes FZ4 tires, 225-40-18. These wheels are not just Porsche "look-a-like wheels," Mille Miglia makes them for Porsche.

He didnt give anyone a set of wheels for them to chose for him. He simply asked your opinions. Whats the big deal in that? You guys are high and mighty been here so long you can rag on people? Give a suggestion or dont read the mans forum, jeez, to much hate

I just see nothing wrong with someone asking the opinions (just opinions not asking someone to pick something for you) of fellow vwers. It would be nice if people could be alittle nicer

people are nice on here to a point, but if you cant even decide what wheels you like for yuor car maybe your in the wrong hobby.

Re: Choose one of these 5 wheels....... (m o)

To everyone whom is telling this guy to pick his own wheels:
If anyone picks their own wheels and you guys don't like them, all you to is give him shi.t about it, so why not help him pick the wheels.
Basically any thread like this is a "help me decide on which wheels to get so that I will like them and don't have to get flamed if I try to show people on the vortex."
