SWEET !

What does it feel like to drive, i noticed a lot of difference just going from 16" to 17" with 45 profile tyres.

Does look good though.

They do feel a bit different but not amazing difference.

I am running them on 225/40r18 and the main difference is road noise!!! Really noisey compared to the standard rims and tires, but thats down to having a hell of a lot more rubber on the road!

What tires are people running on their 18"s or 19"s?

It is on FK coilovers which IFAIK are 45mm drop, but as time has passed i think its nearer 60mm or even more, its still tight but looks very low. They do rub and scuff every now and then but nothing too major.

I want to change the suspension, any recommendations?

Looks good mate,i have 19"RS6's on my Golf,and lowered about 50mm alround.

Took me a while to decide which wheels to go for,but i am pleased with my choice....................everyone that has seen my car say they look huge!!

Thanks for the extra pics embo those wheels look fantastic n ur car looks damn low, Did you do that rear exhaust cutout yourself or is it a different valance.

Will try n find a pic with the black spoke sections, saw them in an add in performance VW if that helps anyone.

Its the 4-mo rear valance.

I will have a look through the Perfomance VW collection and see if i can find them.

I thought that it looked extra low aswell but its not that low, only around 60mm lower than original.

How do i post extra pics, what are the sizes allowed to be?
