Ok, why am I seeing so many Bad Ass rocco's on 17's recently? Just when I need to change tires too. Hmm, maybe I should sell the 16's and go bigger...
always swore that I wouldn't, but damn they would look nice...
Ahhh. We'll see.

Ugh. IMHO 17's on a Scirocco are hideous and a cardinal sin. Too much wheel for such a small car.. the "wagon wheel" look, as the boys at Velocity oince called it. 16's are even too big for me, 15 is as big as I'd every go on any A1. But hey that's just me..

I have 15's at the moment but will be upgrading to 17's before next summer. And hey even a polo can look good with a pair of 17's

Re: Somebody stop me!! (VWPowered)

you cant dump it on 17x7 no matter what the offset is.
i am thinking about 16" on the front and 17" onthe rear. right now i am running 16" all the way around. t-u-c-k-i-n too.

You can with coilovers. Jerry has 17x7.5 and his car is just tucking right Jerry. Looks the bomb too.

with some Hart Racing 17s.
and of course.. the BBS RS..

I think its just a mater of what you like and how much your willing to cut to make it work.Trust me.. i had to pretty much cut out the lip from the fenders and quarter panels. and now it only rubs lock to lock..
but im sure from 13s to 17s roccs look great

i like it low, but am not really keen on cutting the whiol;e inside of mt wheel wells.
mine has a 85mm drop front and 105mm drop rear. *barely* tuckin, and rubs only lock to lock, and on bumps.
i didnt cut anything.i removed the inner plastic fender liner. now when i wash my ride, i have to hose out all the crap from under there. http://****************.com/smile/emthdown.gif
i know a stock rocco is worth more than a modded one, so my mods (even the body mods) can be reverse quite easily.
man, the day i sell my car (no plans to), but if/when i do ebay will be heaven for rocco owners.

Re: Somebody stop me!! (pastpargolf)

well true.. I had some bilstiens with race springs. which i cut to get the hieght i wanted. but the car had 0 suspension travel.. so i ended up getting the H&R ultra low coilovers. .. ALOT of suspension travel.. and drops my car just the way i like it.. LOWWWWWWWW...

yeah, and jerry:
those racing harts are quite possibly the coolest wheels i have ever seen.

are they old? still have 'em??? shoot me an email or IM with any info you have. i'm always questing for unobtainable parts.
...and that bilstein/neuspeed suspension really doesn't have any travel.
;D
