proper A8 rims from audi will cost you the earth mate. Best go for replicas if you want to eat food on a daily basis. As for lowering with 19's, id seriously recomend it as your golf will look like a 4x4 with huge wheels on, trust me, ive been there! You can saftly lower appx 50mm maybe a tad more with 19's.

the difference is not much to be honest, the replicas are damn fine. as for choice only you can decide that as its all down to personal taste.

They have got to be my "most favorite" alloys for the Golf. Just saweet man !

If I did'nt do so many miles and eat so many tyres a year, its definately what I would be having.

My thoughts! I think there too common. Everone has them, granted not in 19'' but they are a common wheel for the MK4 Golf choice. Be different, search around, there's 1,000's of wheels out there [:D]
