Since it's been bumped...
17x8 with 205/45 falken 912
Hand polished lips/bolts
BBS polished caps
Since the wheel is forged aluminum it is plenty room to be safe
EDIT: 14mm cone seat hole

You may also be able to run tuner lugs (which are smaller) so you could have a smaller hole. The shop I went to just didn't have an option for different hole sizes.

If you could get me some up close pictures of both the fronts of the faces and backs of the faces. Unless they're on the car then just the fronts.
And I can speak about tires, 205/45 is the smallest you wanna go, nankangs sdrives stretch well and so do achillies sports
Here are some I took while I was refinishing them
Back (ok maybe a 1/4 inch between centerbore)
I know it looks pretty sketchy (a les schwab wouldn't even mount them for me saying it was risky)
But it is fine, I had a cheap set of multilug wheels that looked similar in the bolt pattern widths and those were fine for 2 years, and these are forged bbs which are a ton stronger
Btw your car was one of the ones that inspired me to get these wheels, and I'm loving the tdi build

It takes multiple applications and if you are going to polish the lip be ready for a lot of work because apparently the compound of the metal is different than, say, an rs
@unit zero: those polished hex caps look great hard to find a set of those now
