    Thread: CC on 18" or 19" not lowered

    1. 05-15-2019 09:28 PM #1
      Does anyone have photos of their CC on 18" or 19" without being lowered? I need to take the snow tires off and buy some rims but I don't know what size I want. When I look at photos, they all seem to be lowered. Thanks

      I have 19x9 Audi Peelers on my '13 CC. Its not lowered yet but its about to be. Make sure you consider the difference in weight when researching your new set up. My current set up is about a pound heavier per tire/wheel. That is slightly noticeable in comparison to my stock set up but I'm happier with the wider combo in terms of the line traction and handling.

      Just my 2 cents here: lowered on stock rims > stock height on bigger

      Stock 2012 Lux +.

      Damn, this forum doesn't seem to allow image uploads, only web links. Here's a googl image of basically the same thing.



      My 2 cents, the ride is rough enough on 18's and I'm terrified of cracking a wheel enough that I'm considering going to 17's. Love the look, but I hate the ride.

      18's on stock. No photo but I think it balance out the car instead of 19's may look too big. IMO

      Thanks for all the comments and photos! I don't see a huge difference visually, so this is good peace of mind for me. My problem is that the wheels I like come in 19 and up. However, I'm familiar with how a thinner sidewall will ride noticeably stiffer. Additionally, I'm in an area that has a lot of pot holes because of the plow trucks so having the 18"s may be the difference between not bending a rim. I guess these are true first world problems.

      I would suggest going with 18's then. I was considering the aftermarket version of the Audi Peelers when I ran into a fellow VW enthusiast at a gas station who had the Audi Peelers on his car. He suggested spending the extra money for the Audi's because the aftermarkets were softer than the OEM's. I took his advice and I'm really glad that I did because I hit a pothole on the highway that caused the sidewall or my tire to bubble and needed to be replaced. I'm quite certain that I would have had to replace the wheel too had I gone with the aftermarket version.
