      After too many years of corrado ownership, there has yet to be found a perfect wheel for the corrado.

      Prove me wrong.

      And it better be good.

      I'm right with you.

      Posting wheels intended for Porsches, BMWs, etc. does not count.

      The wheel must be 5x100 with an appropriate offset w/o the use of spacers.

      I've been wheel-less for months and still haven't found a wheel I'm sold on. Sure, I love top notch BBS wheels like any other fanatic, but 99% of the time the width and offset are not ideal for the Corrado.

      But if i had to Choose 301's For sure

      I love BBS CH's on a Corrado. I fell in love with them when a customer had them on his M3 a few years ago and always wondered how they would look on a Corrado. Yohannes proved to me they look sweet and now they are played out thanks to Dave!

      There aren't many...

      15" - stock SLC speedlines

      16" - Compomotive MOs (at about a 33 or less offset so the spokes are flat, not curved)

      17" - Abt A9s. The original, circa 1997-98 - without lips, stretch, or any of that junk. IMO the most beautiful wheel ever made for the SLC or Mk3 VR cars.

      Blah. 301's maybe but 17s are big for an early 90's sports car.

      No one has proven me wrong yet. BTW, 16x9 anything suck. Tried that one before.

      Plain and simple



      There are few simple but big money wheels that would look perfect on the corrado

      The wheels with all the bolts and such aren't spartan enough for the Corrado IMHO. THey look better on a later Golf. Speedlines have that spartan look, so I like them.

      Corrado
      07-11-2008 02:55 AM #18
      I believe that the perfect wheel size for the Corrado is 16x8 with a 35offset.

      That said, these come awfully close.

      RS 301.

      The RS that was made for the Corrado...well at least the VR6.

      My other choice would be the Abt A9.

      IMO they don't get any better than Fat Fives. These wheels are perfect for the Corrado:

      (Yareka's car)

      If you want a period aftermarket wheel, the OZ Polaris:

      Most of the BBSs are too fussy for the Corrado. I think it looks best with a clean set of bold 5-spokes

      edit: the tire rack type B's are actually type "CB"

      also, Borbet Type T, and Type E (yet to see E on a corrado)

      these would be interesting

      Good luck finding a set. Mike has the only set i have ever seen and from what BBS said they were never put out on the market. Work Equip looks the same and you can find those in 5/100

      RS is where its at....Id like to see a Corrado on Lee's old harrtmann's

      Definitely not the nicest rim posted in this thread. But they do look at home on a Corrado.

      actually matt, that was me.

      best rado wheel ever is LM's with red caps.

      then Borbet Type A's

      then KT1's

      then Azav A's
