Looking to buy some 16" stock MK4 rims for my Jetta. Mainly Montreal I's, II's, or castlettes/NB (sp?) rims. Post up the pics, and thank you!
On this car lowered with bilstein/neuspeed race:

Johnny G, what tire size and drop do you have going on there. The car looks really nice.

maybe maybe not, but the ones I have on my 03 WE are just as perfect as when I picked the car up. maybe its the early ones that got them! Anyway if you do end up getting those kinf of wheels get 03's if you can!
BTW, Jim your turbo timer shipped today, I sent you email!

Re: (mk3glx)

I'm running Weitec coils, not sure how far down? I've got tons of thread left but crappy DC streets keep me from going lower (plus the car is torn apart right now) and the tires are 205/40/16's, can't even remember the brand .....I've got 3-4 sets of rims right now and I can't keep all the specs straight

Thanks for the replys!
I'm picking up some Montreal I's this week, planning on running 205/45-16 with 10mm spacers in the back and 5 or 8mm in the front.
For the spacers should I get lips or no lips?

Hey I'm interested in this as well. Also if you don't mind could you put the tire size. I have been debating putting on 205/40/16 but I am not sure.

Re: (CountBlah.......)

has anyone put a 195/45 on a 6.5 cause technically that's the closest to stock size

I'm going to do 205/45-16, I had 205/40-16 on my last rims and it was a little to small of a sidewall for my liking.
