      so the spokes have got to be almost an inch further in.

      Hi Ian

      Wasn't there an addendum to the Owner's Manual that specified these exact wheels for use with snow chains?
      My memory just keeps getting worse, but I remember something like that being bandied about in this forum back when the cars were new.

      Back from the dead, sorry.

      I came across a set of these the other night, new in the boxes. Was going to put them on my low mile Tropic Orange GTI but realized these are really skinny, a bit too skinny for non winter use.

      Any of you hardcore R32's guys want the perfect winter set? Collectible I'm sure!

      I'm running out of space and made a bad decision on this set.

      Anyone want any info or measurements? They look amazing.

      Northeast MA on NH border, 01830.

      Here's mine bought new from a vw dealer in Rhode Island with Nokia Hakkapeliitta 9 studded tires. They look and help make my R32 a year round transport here in Massachusetts.

      Try it now. I had accidentally limited access to friends and family and just changed it to "public" access. Leet me know if you can see it.
