      19's for sure, 18's look super silly on the MK7.

      Unless you are slamming the car, then yeah 18's will look better IMO.

      Obviously, these are on my Mk 6, however I like them so much (and detest the stock GTI wheels so much), that I think I will have the dealer swap them when I get my Mk 7 - and that will be when I can get cloth in an SE.

      These are VW Topas wheels - 18 x 7.5:

      Back in the day it was always drop before the wheels...

      I personally vote for two threads - one for those with lowered/bagged cars and one for those with stock suspension. One way to avoid all of the "silliness" (no pun intended) of "moar lo" and the like... Just sayin"...

      whoops, I did post this before a search. Figured if there was one it would more likely be on the first page like on the 04 R32 forum here...

      I have those same wheels from my B6 S4 in ET35 ... I wonder if they'll fit or poke too much?

      Love these wheels and color. Planning to put these on my CSG PP 4DR for the summer, use the stock wheels for winter tires.

      I think the Stock Austins are the nicest wheels I have seen on any VW yet. (though the Watkins Glen on the 35 Edition were nice too.)

      I will probably be getting a golf TDI (Not sure yet still weighing my options) but would love to pick up a set of the Austins and retrofit them on A TDI SE.

      Did you guys keep your TMPS sensors or is there a way to turn them off?

      This generation doesn't have TPM sensors - the pressure is monitored through the ABS system.

      Can you post a shot from the rear?

    21. #71
      The thread said one pic, lol. No problem though, do you want a 3/4 shot or full on rear, shot showing the rear but from the side slightly to see wheel gap offset etc?

      Thanks everyone who posted kind words, the wheels really do look fantastic in person.

      Lol I know... surprise me! Just trying to see what that offset looks like as those are the specs of the wheels I am putting on. Appreciate it
