      personally i would never put anything bigger than 16" on a mk3, and nothing bigger than 15" on mk2, but that is my opinion. some of your 17" setups are dope, but unless it is the right wheels, 17's make an mk3 look stupid.

      I will disagree with this thread. I will also concede, some of the cars in this thread are money...but would be more money with 16's...'cept the DONK....stay classy.

      Wow, they actually have a few skimpy 17 series. I think that a 185/35 on an 8 might be a bit much though
