      I'll never understand the black wheel with machined face look. And they used it on the R? So bad.

      I'd say the facelift Tiguan's (R-Line) front fascia should be what to expect from the Golf R

      it's a GTI wheel, not gonna be the standard on the R. maybe as an option.

      fingers crossed for forged 19" Pretoria's to make a comeback.

      Agreed. I really dislike it on my 2015 GTI. I don't get the appeal. (I mean, the wheels are ugly regardless, but the black + machined look doesn't do it any favors.

      The point of painted black spokes is to increase the wheel area (to help aerodynamics and decrease visible brake dust) but visually still have thinner looking spokes.

      Can someone explain to me what the "machined face" means. Looking at those wheels, I don't care for them because they're a little fussy for such a basic car design. I don't think they'll age well. But was does that term actually describe?

      I have these types of wheels on my GTI. If you get up close to them, the metallic finish is actually unpainted (I think there's a clear coat on them) and radially grooved as it they took a solid black wheel and then shaved off the top layer on a lathe.

      I don't hate that. The fender plastic is far less "tacked on" than on the MK7. Still curious if we'll get it in Canada, seems still up in the air.

      The wheels are painted black then a machine removes thin layers of the surface to expose the bare metal spokes.

      I probably should have asked in the "Questions you're afraid to ask" thread.

      Don't feel bad, he would have started a thread about it.
