      Don't mind them...I've found that a lot of people in this R32 forum (that happen to be R32 owners) think they are "better" than most because they purchased a $30k Golf...sometimes I wish I wasn't an owner and "classified" with them...

      We can go faster because our wallets aren't weighed down by that green paper stuff.

      It's all good, as Im used to it in the Corrado forum.
      Afterall, the Corrado is just the love child from a mk2 and a B3 passat getting it on

      I think they fail to realize...the VR6 originated in the Corrado...

      I love my R...but sometimes the R32 forum makes my head spin...

      For the record, I was better than most people before I got the R32.

      You guys should have seen my original reply with the link to the Accessory catalog above. I was completely unkind, then edited it because I realized I was over-reacting. (some of us R32 owners are a little schizo)

      Hey KrazeeKorrado13....do you know if the 18" R32 wheels will fit a VR6 Corrado (I think '92 or '93). My friend has a SLC & he may be interested in my R32 wheels - I know the bolt pattern is fine, I just don't know if the off-set & diameter is fine.

      Aristos, 7.5 x 18", 5x100, ET=35mm. Design is by OZ.

      Fit is a relative term. Offset and width wise they will fit. 18s might rub on a lowered car. Necessary tire size is 215/35/18. There is one guy in the Corrado forum running 18" 337/GLI RCs, his screen name is ABTGOLF, feel free to IM him and ask his thoughts. Hell, there are even a couple brave souls running 19s on a Corrado.

      Aristo and Arietta are the same wheel from an aesthetic standpoint. One's a 17", the other an 18". You can also get a winter Aristo out of the R32 accessory catalog...but it's only 5.5" wide.

      Name: Kevin Belzer

      Incorrect product description for part number 1J0601025BA88Z (arietta 18"
      wheel)

      Your description states that this is the standard wheel on the R32.
      Although this part number seems correct, based on the R32 Accessory catalog published by VWoA, the description of that part number states clearly (in the R32 accessory catalog) that this is " Factory replacement ARISTO by OZ Racing"

      There is a pretty major difference between these 2 wheel styles (atleast to us R32 owners) Can you verify that this is indeed an error on the VW Driver gear site?


    13. 04-28-2005 05:23 PM #48
      There is a small difference in the design of the two wheels & I always assumed that was why one was called Aristo & the other was called Arietta - no matter what size it was. The cosmetic difference is in the area of where the spoke meets the rim's outer lip....look closely & you will see.

      Here is what Driver Gear is calling the Aristo (which I always thought was the Arietta):

      If anyone gives a fat, hairy rat's ass anymore, I did find in print where the R32 rims are referred to as 'Aristos'. I have both a copy of the UK & German VW R32 sales booklets...

      The UK version: "The blue brake calipers are clearly visible behind the stylish 18 inch 'Aristo' wheel rims shod with 225/40 ZR18 tyres."

      The German version: "Hinter den 18"-Felgen "OZ Aristo" mit 225/40 ZR 18-Reifen weitere Attribute von Sportlichkeit: blaue Bremssattel."

      I'm going to sleep better tonight knowing this... Actually the UK/German sales brochures are interesting & makes me want to buy one.....

      Wow... this topic is back.

      I don't call them "Aristos." I call them "OEM Tarmac Anchors."

      VW.com says the following:
      Upgrade your GTI, Jetta or New Beetle that originally came with 17" wheels, with these 15-spoke light alloy "Arieta" wheels, (standard on the Anniversary GTI and the inconique R32.) The rim is tested according to the strict specifications of the Volkswagen Group, insuring you a high degree of safety and functionality

      Hey - enough about the wheels - is everyone as excited as I am about using the word "iconique" in a sentence tomorrow ?!!
      Check out http://www.iconique.com - kinda sums up the R32 ............
