I am about to order a MK V TDI. The only thing that is holding me back is the alloys. I dont know whether to get the 18" Karthoums or go for the 19" Atheo. The Karthoums are an after sales item and would cost more but the 19" ones will work out cheaper in the long run. Is 19" too big for a Golf or would it work out ok? It will only be the 105 bhp model, will the 19`s be too much for the engine.

Any advise would be appreciated.

I'd put even bigger on it, go up to 20", just look at those arch gaps, huge !!! Bet you could get 21 or 22" rims in those easy.

Its a big car so big wheels wont look to daft, it's not like your putting 19"s on a saxo is it[:)]

When I change to a mk5, its gona be 20" at least for me [:D]

I second that 19" all the way. 19" is like the new 17" alloys where as 18" is like fitting 16" to cars 5+ years back.

Golf arches are massive they need feeling up with 19". [8D]

It's always the 1.4/1.6 drivers that don't like 19", probably because your car is too slow to turn them. [;)]lol![:D]
