I have a 2017 gti Sport, I am looking to get into a 2019 Golf R. I simply cant wait for the MK8 R and I cant find an Audi that will give me the fun, functionality and MPG that the Golf R will give me. I have kids and a dog to put in the car and its bound to the car life of daily driver. Planning to put seat covers in the rear.
My reasoning for the GOLF R is I would like AWD for quick snow trips and im thinking of adding a thule cargo box for that purpose that I would take on and off. I feel I should have ponied up for one in the first place, but was in a different financial situation at the time.
my question. My GTI needs new tires, Im still riding on the stock tires which are terrible and worn out.
I here the Golf R rides better with 18's than the stock 19's, I do drive on rough southern california roads, as I see many of you getting 18's for your "R"'s. so I was thinking of getting a new wheel and tire package for my GTI, then swapping them to the Golf R when I find the car. That way they don't go with the GTI when I trade or sell and I keep my investment for the golf R. Does this sound right as it could be several months before I find the R, and I may as well have good tires for the GTI in the meantime.
Lastly , any wheel tire suggestions, ive looked at wedsport, HRE, I know there is a ton of info online, but its a bit overwhelming with 104 pages of wheel tire combos online. lol.
thanks for any thoughts or responses.
