      I was just wondering if teardrops would fit good on my Rabbit. My friend has a really nice set i can pick up for cheap, and i thought they would look decent. Throw some pics up if anyone has them on theirs, any good info is appreciated. Thanks!
      It's called excellent resale value. If you own an American vehicle, you may not be familiar with it.

      Just picked up a set for the caddy, but intend to go more low on coils.

      I just realize that those wheels should have Left and Right side, the drops on the left side don`t match the rotation way like on the right side

      No they actually made them that way. I dont think that they were made to be directional.
