      These are photos of a GTD to Vitopon

      They are 18" x 8" ET41
      Also, dealer takeoffs are for or sale from ECS for a great price

      Wow, thanks for all the links and pics! They look awesome... I wonder what they would look like on a CW GTI though... I'm leaning towards these or the O.Z. Superturismo LM. The big difference is that the Interlagos can be found extremely cheap, compared to the O.Z.s

      I really liked them too, especially at the dealer takeoff price with tires and TPMS. I didn't like the idea of potentially having front poke with 18 x 8 ET41 and I really don't prefer going to an 18" wheel. Also, they do look a lot like the OEM Porto wheels that came on my TDI. They look better than the Porto wheels, but really still quite similar.

      I want a 17" x 7.5" wheel with a lower offset (mid 40s), compared to my 17 x 7 ET54 Porto wheels. That way I will be able to run a slightly taller and wider tire (235/45/17), which should add some ride comfort and protection for the rims. The taller tire will also fill the gap a bit on my stock suspension. Even when I go a little lower, a 17 x 7.5 ET45-ET47 wheel should work just fine.

      For the bigger wheels, it sounds like 18 x 8 ET45 may be the sweet spot.

      Two of those pictures show what appears to be poke, but considering their 41mm offset and 8" width, the fronts should be absolutely flush in person. I have the same offset and width, and while it may appear to have poke at angles, they are confirmed as flush. The rears are 5-8mm away from being flush.

      I'm starting to sound like a toilet now. "Flusshhhh"

      Well, I had 8.5 +45 and had the "front poke". It wasn't bad at all. The front looked flush and the back could have used a tiny little bit more out, but it was fine overall.

      ok a bit off topic, so what's the most aggressive setup (without cambering out or fender modding) you think we can run without worrying about rubbing ?

      Thought this thread was about Formula One, they just raced this weekend at "Interlagos" in Sao Paulo, Brazil.....

      The wheels definitely look hot.

      I have Interlago reps from Power Wheels Pro, but they refer to them as "621s". They're not mounted on the car yet...waiting till spring.

      18"x8" ET45.
