Wow I didn't think any spiders were still around

I bought the set used for a really good price, the rims are not my first choice - but they are better then steelies

having a set of the old mk1 or mk2 wheels for the winter would be excellent.

I'd paint them before winter
silver spokes with everything else black
just for fun

Not a bad idea. the rims are not in the best of shape, but the hakka 1s are basically brand new

Pack 'em up and send 'em down here, but make sure you pack some winter with them. After I remove the winter, I'll ship the wheels back.
It can't get here soon enough.

16" rims make ur GTI like a toy car.

Why dun you put the 17" snow tires on the stock rims and buy a set of nice 18" rims and tires next spring?

Because to run 18" rims in tires is expensive. give the choice I would run 17" in the winter, but keep in mind these tires/rims are used and I didn't have a choice of rim type or size. The price was good and tires still have 100% tread depth.
I got them a price of less then half of getting 16" steelies with Hakka 1s.

Be careful of what you wish for..... mid-january is not a fun time
