      Looking for wheels for my new Tiguan. 18's or 19's. I like the factory look. I really like savannahs. Also like the look of the 19" omanyts like on the r line. I heard powerwheelspro.com carries these for cheap but I dont see them on there. Will settle for new yorks and davenporst if price is right. Hoping to find some dealer take-offs b/c they come with the tires and sensors too. If anybody sees anything a heads up would be appreciated.

      I'm considering selling my 19" VMR VB3s and picking up a set of 20's. Here is what they look like:



      And of course...comes with the tires since I'd be upgrading to 20s.

      Be sure to check out the VMR Wheels lineup! Pretty much all of our models are offered in the proper sizing for your car in 18" and 19"!

      We also have some newer 20" models that haven't got quite as much exposure just yet, such as the V710 and V708

      here are my 19" Omanyt reps from powerwheelspro.





      Call them and ask, when I got mine (2009) they were not listed on the site but they found one set in the warehouse. Also check ebay.

      PS I'm going up to 20" so they will be for sale, but not until I get my bonus check at the end of June.

      I had 19" Omanyt rep's and they looked awesome.
      Probably one of the better looking wheels i have ever seen on the tiguan.




      Then i got bored and went with my new light weight Enkei RPF1's and they feel awesome.
      Much lighter, not as aesthetically pleasing but the car is definitly more nimble.

      Could you post a shot of the whole car with the RPF1's please.

      Hi,

      Did you get your bumper/moldings on the bottom painted, or is that some sort of kit? I am asking because I would like for my Tig to look flawless like that. My Tig is Black, but I want it to be painted completely. Thanks in advance!

      One of my favourite wheel styles...classy. I had for my Audi A4, since sold, VMR 18" 708's another classy wheel IMO.

      I have a set of OEM 18" New York Wheels w/Pirelli Scorpion Tires for sale, with TPMS. They have less than 30 miles on them (yes, thirty) as I had the Savanna's installed before I picked up the vehicle. I'll take $1,000 cash for the set, plus shipping.

    27. 02-25-2012 04:33 AM #27
      -19x8.5 et48
      spacers 8mm front / 10mm back
      went with a 255/40/19 tires

      -H&R springs (back siting lower in photo do to stock wheels in the back)

      -APR

      Really happy with the results. Thanks to the Achtuning team as always. Had to send my ECU back to APR. Dropped it off on a Tuesday and picked it up Thursday afternoon.
