I want to know what are peoples feelings about having either 16 or 17 inch wheels. I used to have '89 GLI that had Racing Hart 16's and the ride was good and not too rough. I've heard that 17's on a MK2 is too big, but I've seen a lot of people with them. Can anyone confirm which size is better?

Re: New wheels 16 or 17....which are better? (NitroBiz)

Id say 16s for the PNW roads. Even with my 16s, the ride was real harsh. I personally think 15s are perfect for a mix of driveability/cost/looks. Part of the reason I ditched my 16s

16s less rubbing problems thicker tires smoother ride less rotational mass you know stuff like that
plus you can lower it more
I like 15s on an A2 but sometimes 17s are super nice
