    Thread: Tiguan Aftermarket Wheel / Rim Thread

    1. 12-03-2009 08:45 PM #51
      Hey guys... I have a 2009 Tiguan SEL. I have been told that my car is kind of girly and I am looking to make it "cooler". I'm 16 and I don't know much about cars other than wanting to get nice 'black' rims, and I want to lower the suspension on my car. If any one can help me or guide me the right way that would help. $ wise how much would all of this cost if I wanted to get good looking black rims, and lowering the suspension..
      Any help would be appreciated.. THANKS!

      They are BBS LM Reps that were powder coated black
      and no.... Your car doesn't come with coilovers you must buy them and have them installed somewhere
      search and google are your friend.
      Glad you like my car, please dont duplicate it though

      Awesome. It looks just like it was meant for the Tig.
      My wish would be to find them in gunmetal, to go with my sapphire blue.
      Where did you buy your reps?

      got mine from powerwheelspro on here, great guys and a killer deal. I just pulled them off for the winter and was thinking about a gunmetal or colormatch. and yeah, i think they look like they were meant to be on there

      Thanks. Looks like I'll be making a future purchase from powerwheelspro (I hope, at least).

      thanks

    17. 12-15-2009 06:21 PM #67
      What about wieght? I know the Tig has 200hp wish it came with more since it has extra pounds from the 4mo. Guess i gotta chip it but I would like 19s or 20s that arent too heavy. I always loved polished lips, not really a chrome fan.

      I am running 20x9's with a 35mm offset, 5.90"backspacing wrapped in 255/35 series tires. No rubbing at all, ride is great I have the factory 17inch option and the more aggressive rubber on the 20s gives the tig great traction on the dry stuff. .. As for weight, Im not sure of the weight of the original wheels but i have swapped out my 20s for my stockers for the winter and My car's gas milage has gone down pretty significantly if that gives you any idea. Hope this helps

      I want to hear if anyone has fitted 9.5" wide wheels either front or rear. If a 255mm tire fits fine, shouldn't a 9.5" wheel? 255 is nearly square to a 9.5 wide wheel.

      I like the look of some of the BMW X5 wheels. wonder if those fit. The stance of those from the factory look nice. Im lookin for a painted or polished lip wheel but everything 20" are mostly chrome

      Yeah, I quoted myself. I really want to see if anyone has a good answer to this. It's the tires that rub, not the wheel, so 9.5" wide should work, right?

      a 9 inch wide wheel fits fine
      i don't see why i 9.5 wouldn't fit
      but, in the end, it all depends on the offset
      a 20 x 9.5 ET 30 is going to fit
      a 20 x 9.5 ET 45 may not

      20 x 10 offset 38 with 255 / 35 works !!!!!
      look at my tiguan

    24. 01-24-2010 06:30 PM #74
      I ordered myself 19x9'' wheels with an offset of 41....
      Anybody knows if that setup will look nice? will I need spacers to make it look fine??? and wide my tires should be if I want to play safe and keep my mags in good conditions as our roads are like a war field here....
