      Ya know... I'm gonna go out there and say it; they probably look tits on mkv / mkvi sitting low on coils and w/some big brakes hiding back there.

      What is the weight of one of these and are they forged? I wish VW had an 18x8 esp for a wheel that is dubbed as a motorsport wheel.
      Thanks for the post JC and the intro price. Look forward to some more details [IMG]http://**********************/smile/emthup.gif[/IMG]

      For what it's worth, 18x7.5" is great for those wanting to stay in STS class for SCCA solo. I realize that's a point lost on most here but it's a valid use of the narrower wheel width. I suspect this is why the Enkei RPF-1 was released with the same width.

      same wheels but in white

      keep in mind that these wheels have probably been through a lot more testing and r&d than cheaper aftermarket wheels

      STX allows for an 9in wide wheel on 2 wheel drive cars. which is where the mk5 gti is classed.
      as for the wheels..$2k is alot of money. tirerack.com lists ASA AR1s at 23lbs and they are 18x8 and $160 each.

      Right, and STS doesn't (but should allow the Rabbit to be more competitive):

      STS:
      3.1 liters and under.
      No turbos except as listed in rule book (VW 1.8 turbo, Audi A4 turbo, Mazda 323, Volvo S40/V40)
      No mechanical LSD (OEM viscous OK)
      Max wheel width 7.5 inches
      Max tire width 225.

      i understand. im just saying the gti runs in STX. i have seen alot more gtis at autocross events then rabbits. probably 10:1

    23. 10-11-2009 12:24 PM #23
      too bad rabbits are H stock competitors, and could probably take down the 3's and minis at a national event.

      I haven't seen a GTI -or- a Rabbit competing out here, so .
      Given the requirements I posted above, why couldn't the GTI run in STS? Is it just because the rules haven't been updated?

      Looks like the wheels that were on a Scirroco when I was at the Nurburgring a couple weeks ago. They were made by RIAL
