I'm a newbie at this and I'm thinking of changing my stock tires to 17", I'm just wondering what sites are you guys going to to do your search for best deals on wheels? Any help is greatly appreciated.

Re: New wheels for B5.5? (dekode)

Did they supply the teeth brush?

They look cool, but I'd hate to clean these mags.

Heh - they're actually not as bad as I thought they would be. It's right after it rains that they're really dirty. Still, I wipe them off about 2-3 times a week and they stay relatively clean...

One idea that Tirerack doesn't promote but still sells is the BBS RK. It looks great on the Passat. Middle of the road price (not super cheap), but stunning in appearance. It is a "split 5-spoke" design; 10 spokes aren't too tough to clean.

BBS RK:

I dunno... a little too SAAB-ish for me.
I'm probably going with the Europe-only VW Pheonix wheels, or just the GLXs.

are these the polished RKs, the Brilliant Silver Painted RKs, or just the Silver Painted RKs?
I ONLY like the SAAB 9-5 OEM RKs...they have a beautiful finish:)
I want them for my car. Badly. But none of this silver painted crap...I want Saab FINISH!
