Hi, for the new GLI I need to aquire some 16's for winter
My thoughts were either used OEM wheels (like say the 16x6.5 wheels on the GTI with five "split" spokes- montreal I's?), or some cheap new ones, like the
Sport Edition Fox 2 or Fox 5 from Tire Rack, less than $105/ea.
The new wheels are:
1) New
2) Easy to get- call TR, no hassles
3) Probably more money, would have to buy 5 incase I bent one
4) Quality unknown, anybody seen these "Sport Edition" wheels?
I suppose I can assume good quality, otherwise TR wouldn't sell
sell them, right? Any idea on weight?
Used OEM's
1) Somewhat harder to get, shipping can be a pain
2) Only need 4, if I dent one the worst is I buy from a salvage yard
Comments? Hey, I might be willing to sell/trade my new GLI 17's with
michelin pilots, but would need $1000 or cash plus 16's
