      Yeah... no. Serious car needs serious wheels. There's no room to play retro with a new RS, IMO.

      Yea!
      1/3 of highway deaths are caused by drunks.

      The rest are caused by people who can't drive any better than a drunk.

      don't like it... I like the wheels. Just not on that car.

      Maybe it's just the super thin tires... that car needs meat and the ride height should be functional.

      Wheels are very cool. But IMO would be better 1" smaller.

      Wheels and stance belong on a Jetta.

      It seems like he spoiled the car's overall look by going from the race look to something more focused on "stance."

      That looks awful.

      What a GT3 RS with aftermarket wheels should look like...

      This is starting to become really, really old.

      I don't know what happened over the last 18 or so months, but the Car Lounge suddenly cannot appreciate large wheels or lowered suspensions of any kind.

      That car is completely functional. I highly doubt it's bagged, so we had to have driven it to that spot for the photos.

      The Car Lounge is over run by people who cannot afford to play with their cars so they spend most of their time online bashing anything and everything that isn't stock.

      Ever notice that the first people to respond normally don't have much to add? Kind of like the "First" and "#1" posters on YouTube, etc...

      Anyway, at first I was thinking that the wheels are too big. Then I noticed that the brakes are HUGE and the wheels fit great.

      I still would rather see this car sideways at a track than sitting in a parking lot.

      Nice photos as usual.

      Meh, I don't like it. I prefer the RS with motorsport type wheels, a la Smindustries or the GT3 RSR:

      Wheels are interesting, but the car looks too low to be functional on most streets. The wheels also look a bit too large...hard to really tell though.

      Leave the dubs to the Carrera and Turbos. The GTX cars should stick to 19s by design (Porsche Motorsport).
