So, here I am reading the Jetta GLI 6 thread and I figured "Oh, lemme check 1552s facebook page about it"
lo and behold the GREATEST NEWS EVER TO HIT THE US SHORES (if you know anything about wheels)
WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOCompomotive Wheels Available Through fifteen52!
Published: February 3, 2011
fifteen52 is proud to announce our position as Compomotive’s current North American distributor.
We’re still working on a pricing program as well as listing the Compomotive portfolio in the products section of this website, but in the mean time feel free to forward inquiries to email@example.com.
not only that, but they're selling them at an amazing good price.
At the FORMER distributor they were asking $450/wheel for TH 17x8s
at 1552 they're selling them at a MUCH more reasonable $289/wheel
If you don't know about Compomotive wheels, let me go over the basics:
- Extremely strong
- Extremely light
- used almost exclusively by rally teams for the last 25 years
I was first introduced to Compomotives by two people here on the VWVortex
Brad @ 1552 with his Golf Next Door
and Pat (who's username escapes me) who also had them on a black A2 GTI
They're offering all their wheels (Modulars are available by special order, I hear) but focusing on the motorsport wheels:
I hate to come off like an advertiser here, I'm just trying to spread the word for those people who had asked me in the past about where to get Compomotives.
Check their site for sizing options. It's not just VW fitments either. They're offering the line of lug pattern, offsets and widths.
These make great autocross, rallycross, stage rally or just great looking street wheels.
This is going into my budget for next year. I've wanted a set of Compomotives forever.
