Started the mods....
*Picked up a set of 255/40/19 Pirelli's
*Medium Tint all around
*Removed badges except for TDI
Picking up a set of RS6 (5 Spokes) replicas this weekend, and going with those until I can lower, and then move to a 20"
Here are picked, just washed and tinted:
Change in plans guys... decided to go with OEM WHEELs replica Sagitta wheel. Gonna do the 19" with a 255/40/19 Pirelli (already got the tires). Picking up the wheels tomorrow afternoon.
This will hold me over until I can lower it, and then I am thinking of a staggered set of 20" AMG 5 spokes!!
Yup, took a clean look, and at least 10-14mm gap, plenty. No issues at all. I ran my index finger all around without ever touching.
Keep in mind it is a 45MM offset, but the width is an 8" wheel. She came out great. As a side note, i will be going through OEMWHEELs for my 20"wheel setup, once springs are available.
I will take some pics in a few and post.
I agree, the center caps look a little goofy. Where did you get oem ones? We tried using the ones from the passat, but they would not budge.

Saw them in person today, and I was drooling, look really really nice. The OEM AMG take offs can be found on ebay for pretty ddecent prices too. But in order to run a 20, you needeither a 245/35 or a 255/35 and that tires is a little to low profile to run without a drop. the 255/40/19 I think still looks oem enough to run without a drop, so I went with the 19s for now... once I drop it... will look at the next steps.
These are all just personal opinions.. nothing against keeping this set or anyone running 19s.
