take a look here:
There's tons of pics floating around from official introductions, concepts and photoshops, GTI, standard, BlueMotion, etc. Can someone(s) please post pics (or links would suffice) of the wheel options with their names? I know the Detroit, but there are so many out there. Would be nice to have a visual index in one place.
So far, named options have included:
Rotary (not bad, if it's the one on Accessory page with the roof rack / cargo pod)
Blade (new 12-spoke, per the Accessory page)
I'm sure there are more. Some may just be for trade shows or marketing collateral. I know the split five-spoke on the 5-door silver looks pretty sharp, to my eye, at least.
Thanks in advance.

Thanks for the input, folks. I don't have enough posts to put up pics from the auto shows. Of those on the onething.de website, I think the Serron 18 and Madrid 17 are two of the better looking ones, and showed up a lot on early pics.

Hello again, folks. Reviving my old thread, is there a resource / website that shows the Mk VII wheel options with names? The best I've seen so far is the one listed above (onething.de)
I still think the Madrid looks the best of these, with Serron in second, though my daughter thought the Serron looks too much like a flower.
The Mk VII SportWagen is showing Durbans, the Mk VII GTI has 17" Brooklyn GTI (pretty sharp, IMHO, though they look kind of weird in motion / blurry) , and the Mk VII GTD has 17" GTD (?!) wheels.
I know there are a couple of others, such as the Blade & Rotary, but I can no longer find either online.
Anyone know of others? Or know of pics of Blade or Rotary?
Actually found some JPGs I'd archived with the Blade & Rotary on an external HD. The Blade is just a 12-spoke, along the lines of what you can get on Porsche Boxsters and Caymans, probably on 911 as well.
The Rotary is interesting, and looks a bit like a Serron, but angled at the hub. There are also blacked-out spokes in between the openings, sort of like the new Brooklyn.
I'd post them, but I'm still too much of a newb to be allowed to do so.
Does anyone know if the Madrid comes in an 18"?
Also, on the German page, you can pick the exterior color and wheel, then rotate the image with your color and wheel choices. Pretty slick.

I like my standard fit Atlanta wheels with machined, polished faces but they're totally impractical if scuffed therefore I am glad that the standard alloys on the new MK7 here in the UK, are plain painted surfaces again. These are much easier to have refurbished or touched-up, if damaged on nasty granite kerbs.
