Re: Need some help on 337 wheels (R Line)

The only difference between 337 RCs and GLI RCs is the finish. If they are in fact 337 RCs, they would look polished (shot-peened). If they are GLI RCs they will be silver. Try to get some better pics. But from what I can see, they do look polished.

If he's your buddy would be lying to you or just doesn't know the
difference?

a 'buddy' would give you a better pic...they 'look' polished, but could be super clean GLI's...

You need better pic's to be totally sure. Right now its all just
speculation.

those look like GLI wheels from the bottom pic.
interesting side note; in Europe, when VW replaced defective wheels for the owners over there, they didn't get shot-peened wheels back, they got ones that looked like GLI wheels.
Could these be from over there? (long shot, in which case, we're all right)

I agree, but when I had the 337 RC's next to my buddies GLI RC's.. mine looked sooooo much better.

Yeah but the 337 ones are hard to repair if scratched. GLI are more forgiving.

If you really wanted a set.. just hold out for the perfect set.. I had mine for 1.5 years and they never pitted, bent, never curbed, 'spidered'.. or anything.. Just have to treat your rims like any other set you have! I know I do!
