      I've been wondering that to. I may be getting a MK1 and i'm able to get a set of these wheels but i'm not sure how they'd look.

      Some 18" 1552 snowflakes would look great on the vette.

      Very closed minded group. So vette wheels are for vette only, but porsche/benz wheels are ok on VW and mk1s?
      If your only doing original equipment on mk1s why even bother modding them??
      Or is this No RS No Care??

      With that said, salad shooters are 16" and probably too big for mk1

      Well a vette is a total redneck car down here so the idea of those wheels on a rabbit makes me sick.
      Porsche and Benz are respectable vehicles with style, class and good looks.
