I live in Chicago, we get snow but the streets are usually always cleaned up within a couple hours after a big storm. I just see it as a hassle to take off the coils and put the stock springs on every season.
I am probably double posting someone's question already but what do you guys think it would cost for 19" tirres + the Sagitta wheels and ofcourse the installation/balancing etc?
I just got the APR stage 1 intake and now I am looking at tires and coils.. I may get the HIDs first but I don't know..
of usd$2200. contact bud klemp at firstname.lastname@example.org

Island Gray Metallic 2010 CC Sport 2.0T 6M, APR Stage1, R-Line Sport Pedals, HTTRS-256-MA:M
235/35/19 Hankook Ventus V12 K110's, Borla CBE, Koni ss coilover kit, Adams slotted/drilled rotors, with Stop Tech pads.
Ride height wise, an inch or so isn't going to make a big difference IMO. If there is already 5" of snow on the roads, you'll be hitting snow whether you're stock or lowered. I ran my GTI on snow tires with a 2" drop for two Chicago winters and never had an issue. I carry a portable shovel too. The ride itself may be worse with coilovers too, but Koni's tend to ride pretty well.
Sorry, back on topic.
Just put these on to test fit, taking them off to rebuild and mount good tires in the spring.
RIM: Oettinger RZ 2pc 19x8.5 et35 all around
TIRE: Avon m500 215/35/19 (terrible tires)
-Switching to Goodyear Eagle F1 235/35/19 in the spring
-Wheels are being taken apart, straightened, faces resprayed silver, lips mirror polished
-Dropping on H&R Ultralow coils
(These prices won't be this low again....)
Anyone with either Eibach Prokit or Neuspeed Sports? Paired with FSD's? How do you like them?
Thinking of going this route with the CC, I'm hoping it will improve the ride over rough pavement and keep it from being floaty at the same time.
More importantly, am I gonna have issues with going head on with driveways and speed bumps with this setup?

2010 Candy White CC Sport DSG
Installed: APR Stage 1 | Carbonio Intake | LED Plate Lights | USP HID 4300kit | Euro Switch | 19" R8 Reps | ST Coilover | 50%Front/35% rear tint
Ok so suspension and spacers are all ready to be installed this spring. I do however need some opinions and help with wheels.
I was thinking about having my Interlagos powdercoated black gloss... I've seen them on Sciroccos and on Ebay and I think they look good but not too sure how black wheels would look on my White Gold.
I was thinking about just getting a new set of wheels and tires for summer but I REALLY like the Interlagos. I was thinking about getting 19x9 Interlago Reps, but something tells me I should switch it up and get something different.
My only concern is the terrible streets we have in Chicago. Being pretty low on coils and having 19's might be too harsh of a ride. I'd have to really keep an eye out for potholes. (I do already )
So I don't know guys. I'm just very undecided on wheels at the moment. Help.
