      Okay well i just bought my rocco about a week ago and it has some tsw's on it but the paint is wack, one of the rim is bent, and they all have some time of curb rash on them so.... Imma buy a new set of rims and very undecided on witch style to get and size. If you guys would be so kind post up pic of rims you have,size and offset. Heres a pic of my crappy tsw's

      Depends on the offset but it should be okay. Most people with Mk2's go with 16's though.


      Currently rocking 14x6 +38 Bottlecaps. Been searching on Craigslist and classifieds for a long time trying to find replacements but I decided to buy a set of wheels from a friend. Drag DR20 (Work Equip reps) 15x7 +10. Here's what it looked like when we test fit them a little while ago.

      IMHO, i think 17" rims on a scirocco just look funny to me, i prefer 14-16" range, i think 14's and 15's are perfect, there are some 16" that are nice, but i just hate the idea of having more rim then rubber, im on 14x6" e35 bottle caps with about a 4.875" displacement with race land coil overs

      fits nice and snug in the wheel wells, and i have no rubbing problem at all

      I am sitting on 15x6 ET40 Sport Edition CE wheels. 195-50 Kumho tires.




      I get a little rubbing when I'm full lock, but thats probably due to my ride height for the most part.

      If you are going to "get rid of" the TSWs, I am interested in a center cap and nut if they fit mine. Which they look to be the same.

      If I had to chose, the first ones.

      But I still vote for 16's.

      Like nickbukowy I used to have a set of these on my car:


      But now I have a set of Corrado Sebrings, painted black:


      Both sets were cheap, even with new tires

      205/50 is a good size for 7" wheels.

      there hard to find in white anymore but you can still get them in black or gunmettal or copper . they are xxr's 15x8 0 offset . I think you may be able to get +15 up front whick is what is needed and +5 in back to make it right . My tires are way stretched with the 0 offset. hopefully I will be getting some fender flares soon to accomidate the rims with full size tires for more performance and racing . the tires on them now are only for looks .

      ATS Cups. Don't know the offset but they're 15x7, perfect size wheel for a 16v in my opinion.

      those are real nice and a offset of 10 would be goo on those with no fender mods for sure and still look beefy . 225/45/15 and the car slightly lowerd would be nice !!!

      In your guys opinion what you think about these? 15x7 +40 offset
      To small? Look cheap? Different color?
      Been second guessing myself, but for 350$ shipped isn't bad at all for these.
