Also what alloys are these :

They're axis supermesh i think (discontinued). I had a set of axis once and they corroded into crap and the laquer all peeled off. I took them back and told them not to bother getting me another set.

I have 17" OZ Superleggeras, with 40mm drop. I only have springs though! [:(] Would advise you to go for either a proper suspension kit (springs and shocks) or coilovers! [Y]

p.s. I think you should go for BBS LM's and slam it! [:D]

Ok Cheers for the info guys

Yeah ive heard that running on just springs can cause problems and i like the sound of coilovers. Cheers for the info on the rims i really like them.

Also has anyone every herd of puttin thinner tyres on your rims so it gives it a stretched look ? i think it looks good and would do it but are there any disadvantages of it ?[^o)].

Cheers

Hiya, im running 235/35/19s the Audi A8 Replica's, choice was preference for looks and not so much handling, although i havnt experienced any handling problems and it handles brilliant.

Welcome to the forum GolfMk489!

I have recently upgraded to a set of 18" Oz Ultraleggeras, which sit very well with my Koni FSD and Eibach prokit springs (30mm drop). Not the best pic (I need to take some more), but you get the idea;
