no they are a nightmare to keep clean, but don't they just suit the mk4! Cheers for the comment Joe

they look superb fitted to RJH's silver mk4 too as we tried one on earlier

thanks pat, they do look good[:p] but im still torn between them and the 112s. with the 112s being that bit easier to keep clean, but i have yet to see them on a golf or any other car for that matter.

the 112's will look equally as good I think! I went for the 132's as they're dished out (about 1") - but the 112's spokes come right to the edge of the rim, making them look bigger. Any of the 2 are going to look superb on your car judging by what you've done already! Please post pics when you have decided and fitted . .

One last thing, how much are you paying for them? I got quite a good price which is why I went for them and not RC's as I originally wanted. Good luck

Pat, have you got any pis on an angle as to show of the dish? as for the price they are on abay by a company called wheelbase for ?699 with zr rated tyres or ?480 just rims. im not sure what to do as regards to tyres as i have 2 almost new mitch's in my garage.is this a good price as it seems ok to me as i should be abble to get a large part of that back for my s-lines.

also do you know what size and what offset you have as my s-lines could do with 10mm spacers, and if i can get them with the corect offset then ill be a happy man.

I got mine from Wheelbase [:p] here's a couple of pics.. to show the dish and the offset. They are 8.5j x 18 ET35 - the front wheel sits right on the limit of the arch, as you can see. So you won't need spacers. The tyres are Merit or something like that, never heard of them to be honest. They're not bad tyres so far, maybe a little bit soft compound so I don't expect them to last any great length of time..

Anyway they look PHAT so here goes mate

I also have the 132's and yes they do fill the arches nicely but you can run 10mm front and 15 mm rear spacers with scrubbing to really fill the arches, and my car is low so I can personally vouch for that.

Walrus, can you post a piccy of your car up mate if poss?

Starry you too when you get the 112's - have never seen any on a mk4. One of my local lads has them on his mk3 VR and they look fantastic

not fantastic I have had them over 3 years and they have all got bad pitting on them they would be fine for a show wheel but due to the diamond cut lip you will always have problems with this.

P.S. I tried the image tags and it just comes up with red crosses ?
