Whats up guys!

Ok so Im not in the position to buy any wheels atm, but Im wanting to change my Look a bit until then... Im STUCK with these choices of 14's, so please dont tell me to buy something else because that isnt an option, im just wanting to get feedback on these 3 choices

Option #1
Ok, so Im considering either just rolling with the Hubcaps I have now (nothing changes...)


Option #2
Paint my Spare set of Mk1 Snowflakes. Silver Face with Black Backing (Like this attempt at PhotoShopping lol)



Option #3
Paint my Steelies GunMetal, which are the Stock Mk3 Golf Steelies (Sorry no PS Pics yet)

Which of these is the best choice??

Thanks guys!!

I wouldn't even waste money on "low pro" 14's. save that money and put it towards some decent wheels
I know, I know, but my current tires are showing core wire so Ive gotta get something NOW :banghead: and the low pros are surprisingly cheaper than the normal sized ones (I was quoted $117ea compared to $175)

the hubcaps look nice.

I'd rock the steelies before the snowflakes. I don't know about the gunmetal, but to me steelies say that you know what the important aspect of the mk3 is. low.

Hmmmm true, true :sly: but even if my steelies are the stock "silver-ish"...?

So you like the Hubs most?


So Far: Damn pretty even for the Hubs vs Flakes, and one for the steelies :laugh:

I guess the gunmetal might look alright. What about color matching to the silver arrow though?


Option 4- paint the hubcaps
yeah I was wondering that too... and its not silver arrow, its a weird L7x1 something :D I was considering that but it would cost alot for napa to mix up enough (they wanted like $70 for TWO small ass cans!!!)

and I thought of option 4 hahaha, I was thinking of gunmetal-ing on those also (or like a hammered grey/silver) but they are already color matched and id hate to mess em up in case everything else looks retarded (kinda keep em as my "safe" wheels lol)

the 195 45's will be waaaayyyyyyy too small for a mk3. just get some slightly less meaty 185 60's.
hmm you think..? Ive seen a couple and they didnt look too bad. I want a smaller wall, I wish they made 50 series or somethin but w/e

My official vote is rock what you have- hubcaps or paint your steelies- dont buy new tires for the snowflakes. Save a bit and get some wheels you really like!
hahaha its actually the opposite lol, the snowflakes have the good tires and my steelie's tires are eaten :banghead:

Im considering just rocking my caps so far... but the snowflakes look soooo tight!!!
