      Thanks for your input!

      Current Ride Height: stock
      Final Wheel Specs: gotta check. 18"
      Wheel Brand & Model: stock 8-spike
      Tire Brand & Size: I forgot
      Rubbing?: Nope

      I am looking for some BBS CH-R-looking wheels but those are hella expensive. Do you know any brands that makes affordable and OK quality wheels for TT?

      Neuspeed makes good wheels too IMO. I saw people here have some stunning VMR ( v710). They seem very affordable. How good are those in term of quality?

      no complaints about the integrity of a VMR wheel
      smacked a curb avoiding a deer at about 35mph and the wheel help up imo


      if youre looking on the economic friendly wheels VMR, Privat, Flashpoint, or even scour the classified section for some used wheels

      The only reason I could rationalize spending money on aftermarket wheels is to reduce curb weight. Honestly, I wish everyone would post their wheel weight along with their data and pictures.

      And, does anyone know a location on the web that lists the wheel OEM wheel weights? I've goolged and came up with nothing. The only way to know if I'm reducing the unsprung mass is to know what I have on my car right now.

      Holy crap! My OEM wheels weight 26 lbs! We can definitely do better than that.

      I've read that for every 1 lbs of unsprung weight, it's equivalent to 5 lbs of curb weight. That's not much of an enducement, frankly. However, the unsprung weight reduction reportedly imparts acceleration improvements and improved handling.

      So.....
      This time next year, I hope to be running somthing substantially lighter. I'm thinking more in the 20 lb range. That's the equivelant to 6X5X4 = 120lbs of "curb weight" removed.

      Or... is the internet blowing smoke up my TT's tail pipe?

      Havent seen a definitive conversion formula for the unsprung weight conversion but it is a multiple of the weight(have seen 5x and 8x).
      If yo are looking at BBS be careful which ones if you are trrying to shed weight. BBS are a fairly heavy wheel(some models, not all). Volk has some of the lightes t strongest wheels going and can be costly. VMR has done well for me. Had three sets on my BMWs ands hit a brick in the road at 75 mph and the wheel didnt crack or break, just bent and blew the side out of the tire but the wheel stayed whole which prevented a lot of damage and a possibly worse situation by trying to control the car without a wheel.
      I had a set of Advan F7 on m BMW that were light and pretty nice looking. I m think about them as a possibility for my TTRS. Have to photoshop a set on and see how it looks.
      Check the link I posted above to see the weights of some popular wheels brands and models. It is eye opening.

      Nice set of wheeels! the colors look good with your car. Those are a nice style wheel but for me there are too many lips. My eyes see them as smaller than they really are but thaty could be because I am used to seeing 19s.
      Are they as heavy as the BBs wheels? If I remember correctly the BBS version were a bit towars the heavier side but I am not sure.

      as the title says, was looking for any info on anyone who has tried to fit these wheels on a ttrs .... I believe the stock wheel width is 9" so I am wondering if you can get these to fit and what ET /spacers it would require... Really like the concave look to these wheel but am not sure if such a wide wheel will ego to degrade handling or rub an matching tire size

      really like this powder coat, called "Sunken Treasure"

      I know 18" with lips looks small!
      I prefer to keep lots of sidewall, compare to the 19" setups!


      Quick question!

      I'm going for my first staggerd setup!

      18x9.5
      18x10.5

      Was wondering if the fact that im running same size tires front and back will help not to make the quattro sys crap out?

      Current Ride Height/Projected Ride Height: Stock TT Mk2 (considering H&R springs)
      Wheel Specs (Height, Width, Offset): 19x8.5 et 48
      Wheel Brand & Model: AMG series replica wheels, 5-point split style
      Tire Size (if appicable): 235/35/19
      Question: Will it fit? Rub? Do I need spacers (or should I get them?) With a 30mm drop will rubbing be an issue?

      Current Ride Height/Projected Ride Height: 2013 TT-RS Stock
      Wheel Specs (Height, Width, Offset): 19x8.5 et 45
      Wheel Brand & Model: RS6 style replica (Power Wheels Pro)
      Tire Size (if appicable): 255/35/19 Dunlop Wintersport 3D
      Question: Seeing conflicting data on whether or not this size wheel will fit (with or without spacers). Anyone with first hand experience that can help me out?

      Neuspeed is planning to come out with an 18x8.5 et45 size for their RSe12 wheel in August sometime. That should be a close to perfect fit on the TT MK2 with 245/40 tires. I plan to get those for my 3.2 coupe.
