Although my opinon isnt valid, a 17'' with a good dish would look awesome-possum on your wagon, even though im lovin those a8's.

Hashbrowns + BBQ sauce = good.

keep the A8's and get an alignment
... if you do go smaller, get something other then Mercedes wheels... seems every Passat is running those now

well, the 17's with the dish would look cool. Always liked the dished look. Not to mention you'd have more tire between the road and your rims. Plus wider tires, more traction. Where can you go wrong?

Re: what would you do??? (chatterton)

from what i posted on the other board:
honestly i think the 17's are gonna look small on the wagon. even if they are wider. And since the A8L's design makes them look larger than they really are, the effect will be more dramatic if you go to the 17's. It's like how kelly's wheels dont look as large at 18's compared to the a8l's.
dont worry, i'll get to your p-chop hopefully tonite.

I agree with what was stated above- 17's will look small on a Wagon. The Audi wheels are sick as hell on your car. Leave 'em!

You need to rekindle those special feelings that you used to have for the a8 wheels. If you leave them for some 17's, you may look back later wish you could have them back.

doesn't a "what kind of wheels should I get" thread belong in the mk 4 forum with all the other idiodic questions

eddie, keep the A8's. IMO, I think the car looks sick the way you have it now. I need to see pics of the 17"s on p-shop in order to convince me. Otherwise, I always like that saying where it goes "If it ain't broke, don't fix it".
