Title: The MK5/6 Wheel thread!
Post by: Greeners on October 01, 2010, 11:53:07 AM
So folks, as there are one or two wheel whore's about the place I thought it best to start a thread with pictures of all the different wheel types we have fitted to the MK5 and MK6 over the last few years.

I will start things off with most of what I've done to mine so far!  :happy2:

I've been running on the Leggy Rita's for exactly a year now and they look great even when dirty. Plus being lightweight (8kg) the feel is very enjoyable.

I love my Smoked Chrome Monza's (done to kill white worm) but although not used for a year I find it difficult to bring myself to offer them for sale.

Just wanted to say that I absolutely love these wheels!  It was love at first sight when the first Phaeton appeared in my local dealership.  Look awesome on a GTI.

Thanks, I feel better now for that 'moment'...

There are some fantastic wheels here but how can you tell what wheels will fit a MK5/6?
I know the studs are 5 x 112 but how wide can you go without any arch alteration or what offset can you run with?
What does offset actually mean anyway. Seen all sorts of number quoted but don't really know.
Keep the pics coming...seen about 8 i'm interested in!

Offset: if the rim is placed exactly over the middle (where the rims touches the hub) the offset is 0. the further in the rim is compared to where the rim touches the hub, the higher offset, for instance ET 51 ( standard on the golf) means the rim is 51mm futher in that the center of the rim  :happy2:

You can go to 8,5 and with ET 48 without trouble if 225 tyres are used.  :santa:

It's worth noting that if you use TUV approved PCD correction bolts and ensure the spigot is 100% right, then the whole 114.2 Jap world is your oyster. The OZs below were Jap fitment and I used them on track with no problems.

w12's from Illetronik's tread, More rare than rocking horse puh, and not to be mistaken for std. gti rims. notice the less rim around the center of the rim compared to the std. ones. they are   :drool:

Itake it these will be very pricy then? IE more then the OEM 18s....

Just got my new wheels, they are 18" VW OEM and I believe they are called Chicago Lightweight, although they felt pretty heavy when I was putting them on.

19" River Wheels R1s with 235/35/R19 rubber. TBH I'm getting quite bored of them, I've had them for four years and think I might swap for some BBS this year. Not sure if I want 18s or 19s.

Don't think so, the only 'pimping' that I've done is have the inserts painted gloss black as the VW factory finish has a machined face to the wheel.

Yup thats pretty much what I was eluding to earlier, they could well be the same and had a re-paint, or they could be reps?

Thanks for the feedback Steve but that's the reason I bought them as a contrast to the matte finish of the wrap!  :wink:

One thing at a time, I'm not made of money and have lots of petrol to buy! Besides, I quite fancy a Capristo or a Kreissieg and they don't come cheap.

edit: Capristo struck off, as they don't make it anymore :sad1:

Managed to kerb two about 200 miles after I fitted them, but apart from that they don't have any contact issues so far.
I've had the two I clipped refurbished now and bought slightly wider tyres (Conti 3, 235 35s) to protect them a little better. The 235s don't actually look wider than the 225 Falkens that were on the wheels when I bought them though! The nearly new Falkens will be heading for ebay soon.

Were I to buy a set new I'd go for 18s though. 19s are awfully prone to damage.

I have 17" Monzas on my 07 GTI - been thinking of treating myself to 18" Monza shadows
Is it a straight swap over or do I need additional spacers?

Lovelly stance... are those Real Monza's?, as those look slightly differently cut on the face of the alloy? .Or are those 19's? They look excellent imo, much better then the Pescara's on that Ed30 bruce :happy2:

I like the BBS Pescaras as well. So I also have a set of BBS VZ033.

Thanks guys. These are sweet if you like shedding weight. The 18" x 8"'s are only 19lbs each. That is nearly 40 lbs lighter than my 18" Detroits/Monza's.
And If you are interested in 19" x 8" wheels, they are 20.5 lbs each.

Thought I'd put mine up as people are always asking to see powdercoated for the monzas...

I've had a lot of issues getting these refurbed, kwik fit messed up the fronts after a tyre change and after negotiating them paying for the refurb I dropped them off at a place I went to look at.... first time round they had issues masking off with the tape lifting and the outcome was terrible... second attempt was better masking off but not great and to add insult to injury... they sprayed the faces the wrong colour...

these are done monza II style black inners with what should have been a black chrome (silver) faces however the guy must have had an inspiration whilst working and sprayed them smoked chrome which is a very dark grey...

They will have to stay this way till I can get them to someone who can get it right first time round.... but pics anyway... sorry no shots on the car yet...

Does anyone know who makes the 18" Monza rims for VW ?
I heard it might be CMS Turkey or Hayes Lemmerz in Italy ?
Does anyone know, perhaps it's embossed into the cast on the back of the wheel within one of the spoke recesses ??

Ronal, currently.  :happy2:
When you say currently, does that mean they've been made by someone else previously ?
The reason I ask, is that I have dealings with a few alloy wheel manufacturers in my day job, so was looking to see if I could get some directly if needed (am in the market for a MK5GTI and would prefer 18's, so this way an upgrade from a car with 17's to 18's might not be too expensive)

weight?

7.8 Kg



That's a great (small) weight. Lighter than the TD PR 1.2 in the same dimensions, how much room is there for bigger brakes behind the spokes?  :santa:
Title: Re: The MK5/6 Wheel thread!
Post by: Nikiforos on December 31, 2011, 06:16:17 PM
Because of the spoke's design,there is plenty of room for big calipers.
I will take a close photo, so you can see the gap to my R32 brakes.
Its definitily more space than TD's.
Happy new year mates :santa:

So folks, as there are one or two wheel whore's about the place I thought it best to start a thread with pictures of all the different wheel types we have fitted to the MK5 and MK6 over the last few years.

I will start things off with most of what I've done to mine so far!  :happy2:

I was thinking about this but recently saw a black mk5 gti with Monza II's in silver and I thought they looked small, I had to litterally check to see if they were 18's and not 17's, I've since changed my mind and will either be getting mine done grey or re polished instead.

Title: Re: The MK5/6 Wheel thread!
Post by: SeanB on March 05, 2012, 10:46:48 PM
Very slightly, yes. I think I need a few more mm of offset. Im going to look into getting the wheels machined to give me an offset of about 48mm. On my own in the car, I dont have any problems as it is though.

I have rubbing on 18" just dropped on lowtec springs 30/20, wheels are 18" eta 45, 8.5 width.

Get rubbing on a full load only on humps, it's minor, however I may upgrade shocks koni fsd, I've read they also raise the height. I like the stance now !

I am looking to put black wheels on a white car in the future and always liked the simplicity and cleaning practicality of a 5-spoke design. I also like the TD Pro Race 1.2 but how do you think they compare to these Ronals at a similar price?....

Well, I went for these instead of the TDs and they arrived today. The 8J was an ET35 which just a tad too aggressive an offset for me but the 7.5J width was ET45 which may be better. They are 10.2 kg in naked form.

....Funny you should say that, Simon, because I was going to post that these wheels would really suit a Mk5 R32 but be more practical for cleaning than the R32's originals.

I think my car would've come with Omanyts anyway, just in a slightly different fitment. I still have the Speedlines on at the moment. It'll be a long time coming anyhow, as these cost almost 600 quid each new!

Later generation (up to 2008) Mk5 R32's came with Omanyt's as standard. The 'Zolder' style alloys were on early Mk5 R32's. However both R32 wheels are 18x7.5" ET 51. R36 alloys, mine  :evilgrin:, are size for size with BBS VZ033's so are a perfect fit.  :happy2:

I managed to pick up 3 for £75 with minimal whiteworm. I thought it was almost a lost cause finding a fourth so phoned Western VW for a price on one wheel, £578!!  :surprised:

I then had a brainwave and went to eBay.de. Plenty R36 wheels on there at the time and I paid €150ish to have one totally mint wheel delivered to my doorstep.  :smiley:

Yes there should. And I have the 4 original covers sitting in a drak corner under my bed sumwhere. However they are OEM silver in finish where as my wheels are powder-coated Shadow Chrome. The paint shop couldn't do a paint to much so I didn't bother getting them gone. The spigot holes accept genuine VW Badges so I thought why not. Makes my wheels more unique.  :wink:

anyone know the weight differences of these TD wheels vs OEM GTI/GTD wheels (vancouvers, monzas etc)

i have seen many other cars fitted with the TD 1.2's (usually track cars) so im guessing there must be a significant weight reduction using them  :smiley:


....All 18's weighed without tyres:

OEM genuine Monza's ~ 11 kg.

TD's ~ 9 kg.

OZ Alleggerita's ~ 8 kg.

I went from Monza's to OZ LeggyRita's and immediately could feel the difference in response and feedback without any change in comfort.

Post by: RedRobin on June 23, 2012, 04:06:10 PM

You are very welcome. And Thank You for the Thank You!  :drinking:

I rounded off the weights to the nearest kg - Mine are actually 8.035 kg. The OZ cost a lot more than the TD's and the TD's are extremely good value for money and perfect for trackdays. Going lighterweight than 8 kg costs £thousands rather than £hundreds and probably means having forged alloys and more risk of breakage in road use.

£5grand will buy you some very tasty carbon wheels:

Like what you have done there with removing the centre caps... I thought seriously long and hard about this when I had the R32 after seeing the way the wheels looked on the fast and furious park ride vid!!  :happy2:

I didnt in the end... but they do look mighty cool!!  :notworthy:

Thought I would give these a whirl, TSW Donningtons in satin grey. Ive had a few different sets of 19s so fancied the 18s again. Not sure about the red centre caps but cant find any VW ones to fit yet so they will do for now.

Bit of a random question but does anyone have a site where I would be able to view Audi alloys?  A few years ago (when I had dreams of doing up my old mk4) I had seen some Audi alloys with a pretty peculiar name.  I can't remember the name now at all but would love to try and find them again.  Bit of a long shot I know as i can't even remember what audi they were standard on.

If you have a look at my brothers wheels on his silver gti, in post 444 those are in nigaro black. That's kind of a gunmetal/anthracite.

They will be really set off by the deep dish polished and gunmetal! You gotta post some pics when you get them done!

It's worth noting that if you use TUV approved PCD correction bolts and ensure the spigot is 100% right, then the whole 114.2 Jap world is your oyster. The OZs below were Jap fitment and I used them on track with no problems.

Speedline Turini. 18x8 ET42
(http://daz.co/media/e123/robertsm2006/Turini.jpg)

(http://daz.co/media/e123/robertsm2006/IMG_2803_exposure.jpg)


I thought correction bolts and therefore Rota Grids were a no no for track. Hmmm just possibly opened up a wealth of possibilities for a second set of wheels for me Mike

God those Oz's were awesome!

**edit

Ps how much do turinis weigh in 8x18?

Reading throught the latest Golf+ magazine and saw a Mk5 GTI which is the ongoing project car they have. They were fitting a set of coilovers this month. I was wondering if anyone knew what the wheels are on the car? I cant seem to find a picture anywhere  :confused:

Just picked up a set of BBS CH Reps and they need tyres. The rim size are 8x18, ET 35 & PCD 5x112. Would these be 225 40 18 ?

They look very wide !!  :evilgrin:

Mike asked a few pages back how much these wheels weigh and the answer is 10.5kg without tyres. Not light, but bloody strong. I had a meeting with a kerb at around 60mph a little while back and still drove over 20 miles home without so much as a wobbly steering wheel. It was totally my fault. Combination of unfamiliar, unlit NSL road, another car tailgating and then an oncoming van not turning off his main beam and dazzling me. The result was a new wheel and tyre, but no other damage that I've noticed...

(http://i1015.photobucket.com/albums/af276/simonali68/IMAG0174.jpg)

When I turned off later I saw the car behind was a Lotus Evora, so I was never gonna drop him!  :laugh:

They suit very well indeed. And, because of their design having such big areas of alloy, they don't look as small as 17's.  :happy2:

Personally I like them as a Winter wheel but wouldn't want them the rest of the year, style-wise.

Yep it's gone (to user 'adamsin', a good mate of mine) so still in the area. Not seen it on the road yet  :sad1:

I bought a set of neuspeed rse07's instead.. 9kg each for 8x18 and a nice simple design:

^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^ Thanks for the picture martin :happy2:

I must admit I'm really tempted by these, there out of stock on awesome's website at the moment though. Unfortunately I'm also having to consider trading my gti in for a 5 door car after a family member's recent accident, will stick with a golf gti can't think of anything else that fits the bill (mercedes c63 amg to costly to run, I would like to consider the new focus st but not loving its looks or the dogs breakfast of an interior) so will probably get a 5 door gti or might push for used ed35 5 door or really stretch for a used golf r 5 door.


Did you ever get your new wheels? team dynamics pro race's wasn't it?

Title: Re: The MK5/6 Wheel thread!
Post by: MC71 on December 22, 2012, 03:47:23 PM
^^^^ oh dear mate! Hope all is well with the family.

I ordered the TD 1.2's in Anthracite but after 3 weeks on back order I cancelled it so will try someone else come the New Year for them. Those Neuspeed's are even better looking (but more expensive) would need to see if they would clear the NQS BBK without spacers but could be tempted by them. I must resist...  :innocent:

Thanks martin, family on the mend but could be a long road so might have to do the honourable thing and get the 5 door.

 :sad1: bad news about your wheels, seems to be a symptom of this recession that retailers are not holding stocks of expensive items tying up valuable capital and as a result manufacturers are not making items in large or regular volumes. Stick in there and wait.... or buy some neuspeeds :evilgrin:

These are the wheels I'm tempted by. The VRG2's are forged and about £600-700 per wheel  :sick: . The Neuspeed are about £250, but are 7 spoke instead of 6.

There are some Rota alloys which are similar to VRG2. Either the Rota Grid or Rota Boost. They are between £210 - £250 per wheel.

All the best Phil to you & the family. Some things are more important than a lump of metal!

In 18" they come from an Audi A4 sline. Any bigger and they are from an A8. I think the offset on the 'proper' RS6 wheels is a bit too much.

One of my Favourite pics ever  :notworthy:

Edition 30 perfection IMO.

Please dont say its a GTI   :laugh: ….Im just saying they keep the original look with the 19" CHs, and add a touch of lowering to make a stunning car even better looking :drool:


I also think the CKs look stunning as ED30 wheels.  :innocent:

I doubt it is a ED 30 by looking at the rear valance (painted GTI one vs Individual Design/R Line/ED 30 one) but the car really looks stunning!

These were 2012's Winter wheels but i ended up getting them powder coated after the finish decided it no longer wanted to stick to the wheel, shame as i liked the polished / burnished look of the A8 Competitions.

(http://daz.co/media/ff476/scrupesgti/IMG_0729.jpg)
This was at the end of last winter just before i refitted my refurbed Pescara's.

(http://daz.co/media/ff476/scrupesgti/IMG_0737-1-1.jpg)

I'm on the look out for something new but really dont know what i fancy just yet..... Pirelli editions maybe? whatever i go for it'll be in 5 spoke you can be sure.... I just have a thing for 5 spoke wheels.... Maybe even the new mk6 GTI wheels? Mmmmm

Oh, Currently I have Audi A3 s-line / sport rims on the car but no pics just yet

Have you thought about Audi FAT Fives?  :drool:

Thank You! :smiley:

I've looked for the fat fives for quite some time but they're old wheels now and getting hold of them in good to excellent condition is like searching for hens teeth, I bought a set on evilbay 2 years ago but two of them were hairline cracked and all were so heavily pitted and would have been too much work to sort so they went back..... should have known better that to buy wheels on there which were listed as "Very Clean Condition" and had blurry pictures :stupid:

Then I got gazumped on a set on ED38 last year, another failure...... so I'm "Not looking" for those in the hope some just turn up out of the blue :wink:
I might put up a swap's add for some but they'd have to be really good nick to swap for the pescaras. I'm also keen on the RS6 style S-Line wheels but again, they often require a lot of work to get in good condition and they still command a good price.

Lightweight rims have less meat on them and a much higher chance of cracking / buckling if you hit a decent pot hole or kerb though, great for track wheels IMO

Me either but accidents happen! I've seem many a smashed alloy oop in the north with all these poor roads, 8 out of 10 have been cheap aftermarket types which is what I really meant, the OZ and TD wheels are built to good standards (OEM) and with top quality MgSi materials so will cope better than other makes.

I've even seen copy BBS LM's with the centres pulled through and warped at a local tyre fitters place!

I twatted a kerb at around 60 mph a while back and the aftermarket wheel I was running bore the brunt quite well, I thought. It was f*#?ed, but the tyre stayed inflated and I drove 20 miles home on it with no vibration before daring to look at the damage. :laugh:

Mike asked a few pages back how much these wheels weigh and the answer is 10.5kg without tyres. Not light, but bloody strong. I had a meeting with a kerb at around 60mph a little while back and still drove over 20 miles home without so much as a wobbly steering wheel. It was totally my fault. Combination of unfamiliar, unlit NSL road, another car tailgating and then an oncoming van not turning off his main beam and dazzling me. The result was a new wheel and tyre, but no other damage that I've noticed...

I'm considering a set of those or VMR710s. The 3DSMs, they seem to only be available in black or polished silver, do they offer any anti-corrosion warranty? After previous experience of polished wheels turning white, I'm reluctant to ever go for something like that again, but they're so beautiful!

Is there a build thread for this mate?

Also people any mk5 have these fitted, just want to see how they might look:

lol your telling me mate, my mate actually bought them for around £150 for his mk4 and now has decided to go on a different route and after talking to him i might be taking them off his hand for the same amount. They definetly need a refurb thats probably why they were so cheap.

Are there no pics of these around on a mk5?

got the same set up on my gti but not quite as low but the thing is really bad on rubbing the arches on the rear any advice on how to sort this problem

Post by: Top Cat on February 03, 2013, 08:58:31 PM
Your not going to like my answer.  :smiley:

Put the correct fitting wheels on and they wont rub.   :P The crap answer is to add some camber to the rear which you can do because the rears are adjustable for camber. But the trade off is a car that handles worse.

The ride isn't a factor for me anyway.

I'd rather have the correct spec 19's on my car than the wrong spec 18's.

Don't forget...19's are becoming more and more common place straight from the production line nowadays.

I doubt VW would use em on the Golf R if there were any problems in ride quality or handling. 


I can drive with 3passengers on my 19's and not have any rubbing issues what so ever...and that's with the H&R lowering springs on too  :happy2:

Yeah but manufacturers are designing cars to suit bigger wheels - just look at the Astra GTC, it can take 20 inch wheels no probs!

Just don't want to get 19s then be driven crazy with the crashing and banging in the cabin. I do lots of driving so don't want to completely ruin ride comfort lol.

Not sure what setup to do yet. 8's all round, 8's & 9's or 9's all round.

I'd be tempted to do 9's all round if I can get the ET correct for the stance I'm after (slightly lower at the front) and they will be in silver this time, went for anthracite last time.

They are going to take months to arrive as they are special order due to the stud pattern!!

The are the new (and as yet I available) Compomotive TH's in 8x18 & 9x18. But you can't buy them direct - you have to go via Reyland Motorsport (of cosworth fame) and are usually only available in 4x108.

I previously had an anthracite set of theirs in 8x17's on a Fabia Vrs. But I think these are going to be well into 4 figures. I'm going to call them tomorrow to see about time scales and prices!! As soon as they arrive they will be straight onto the car & pics posted up!

Finally got around to getting my Neuspeed wheels on..  had these since last year but a change of car followed by cold weather (hence OE rims with winter tyres on) meant these have spent far too long in their boxes in the garage.

Some warmer weather predicted so the winters are off any my summer tyres are fitted up with the Neuspeed RSe07's.

Only managed to grab one pic on the drive home from the tyres shop - still got the fitters soap on the sidewall - i'll take some better pics at some point :smiley:

Caps are stunning, for me nothing chavvy about a subtle BBS cap in red. If they were lime green or a similarly brash colour, then maybe it wouldn't work but red is sober and classy enough. I want to some similar red caps for whatever VZ's/CK's I get for the A3  :smiley:

I'm fairly sure 19's will be fine anyway! But to answer your question, no. Helios are only 19". Look at Neuspeed RSe14 in 18's.

i was thinking about going for the 35 profile but they were going to be fitted to his car and the caddy as well so the 35 profile would have only looked rite on my car height

any lower than how my car is sitting ATM and id go 35 profile

here they are fitted to my car for reference

I'm assuming those will be the 9.5's and you are riding low?

Asking cause I've been thinking about getting those but most likely 8.5's and I'm only lowered 30mm.

Yes they're 9.5 on the rears with 225/40/18 and on his golf he's maxed out the rear camber !

also need help with picking up center caps

been looking at this site


http://www.purems.com/Products/BBSCENTERCAPS-BBS-Center-Caps


They say that...

BBS Caps fit ONLY genuine aftermarket BBS Wheels. They may not fit OEM, Replica,or other "Made by BBS" wheels.


I am sure that the C style(70/64) is like the OEM

Can somebody help me

Cheers

Go get an alignment and tell them how you want the rear camber but tell them to zero the toe (toe eats tyres worse than camber)

Thats what i did and im running around 3 degrees  :happy2:

Went for some lambo reps in the end which look fairly similar and I like the. ALOT!

This is on my brothers car. Can't say he's mentioned rubbing.

On my car ( not as low as that) there's only rubbing if I take a corner too fast but I'm changing the way I drive as I've recently lowered it.

No spacers fitted.

This is my height

Mike asked a few pages back how much these wheels weigh and the answer is 10.5kg without tyres. Not light, but bloody strong. I had a meeting with a kerb at around 60mph a little while back and still drove over 20 miles home without so much as a wobbly steering wheel. It was totally my fault. Combination of unfamiliar, unlit NSL road, another car tailgating and then an oncoming van not turning off his main beam and dazzling me. The result was a new wheel and tyre, but no other damage that I've noticed...

I was working in a street in Yorkshire and got talking to a guy who have bought them from Japan for his evo X but when they arrived they were 5x112s instead of 5x114s so he was compensated for there error. Rather then waste money sending them back sold them too me. Nearly snapped his hand off. Nice price aswel seen as though they about $2500. Just mounted them today but I no longer have my eddy wasn't going to put a pic up  :signLOL:

7.5kg so I've saved 40kg by removing my 19" tallys  :happy2:

Rather than start a new thread, I thought I'd ask in here. I'm looking at getting my 17 inch Monza wheels refurbed as they have slight kerb rash (not done by me). Are Monza wheels diamond cut? The place that I've contacted said they don't refurbish diamond cut wheels.

Thanks

not really.  i'm ex-motor trade -  we'd sometimes sell a demo that had really low miles, but had be test driven by so many numpties (and salesmen) that the wheels were in need of a re-furb.  lots of people buying a car thats only a few months old want showroom condition wheels, hence either swap out for a factory fresh set or refurb before the sale.

You're right. That's the official information that I only found out later.

When I posted that it was the weight I thought it was from what I searched online. One topic had a picture of one wheel on a scale with that weight but I can't find it anymore.

Here are more links with the 8,2 kg stated as well:

does that single exit rear valance allow fitment of the standard exit exhaust position? or is it still positioned differently with the r32 rear

Thanks
Title: Re: The MK5/6 Wheel thread!
Post by: MC71 on October 12, 2014, 07:40:38 AM
^^^^ If you have a geniune R32 bumper you'll need a diffuser from someone like srs-tec (link below). Position of your side exit exhaust remains the same but can be tight to the R32 bumper so you'll probably need to remove some of the plastic (pic below).

I bought mine from ebay: http://www.ebay.com/itm/261346495307 (http://www.ebay.com/itm/261346495307). It's ABS plastic, instead of fibreglass reinforced plastic that STS-Tec sells. Previously I had the GTI valance and I didn't need to alter the position of my exhaust tips.

I saw that you got a genuine R32 bumper, so MC71 already explained what you'll probably need to do. :smiley:

I like those but I'm glad I went for the OZ instead. I think those look better on Sciroccos.

I'm not one of the biggest lowering fans but it needs a bit of lowering to look perfect. :smiley:

Only recently bought my MK5 Golf GTI and the first thing I wanted to do was change the wheels as I'm not a big fan of the Monzas, so I bought some BBS CH 18" 8J ET50, I will use the Monzas for the winter. Not the best photos, but I will get a good camera soon :smiley: Some lovely wheels in this thread!

Anyone running 17s other than OEM wheels? Interested to see what some more aggressive offset and wider 17s look like but most people seem to go for 18s when upgrading. Like the look of stretched tyre on 18s but also like the look of a meaty tyre on a 17 as it looks a bit different to the rest

interestingly enough jaffa your car was one I saw that made me wanna see more 17s as yours looked good  :happy2:
i like the idea of cheaper tyres and more forgiving ride compared to 18s but fear it may only look real good with more aggressive suspension, wide rim and offset. way too many speed bumps in my area to be able to slam mine

Appreciate the compliment mate, they are actually my first set of 17" wheels as all my other sets are 18" and I fancied a change
Even at the height I run at I can feel a difference in the ride compared to 18"
I couldn't comment on how it is to live with as a daily driver tho as I only use the car once or twice a week and I already avoid the speedbumps round my way like the plague!

They're Speedline Omanyts 18''. They came from factory with late R32 and R-line packs. I have the 17'' version on my GT Sport R-Line. Of course you can also get replicas of them.

Ok thanks for the info, sadly I think they might be reps as I couldn't find a VW stamp on them with a quick look. They weigh as much as a small island too!

Got them refurbed and back yesterday as they were in dire condition and got some new rubber too.
They came off an Audi so I've got no centre caps ATM and cant seem to find any BBS caps that are 68mm at the lip and 63 inner?? Or shall i go for VW caps off eBay?? :sad1:

All OEM wheels mk5 or mk6 fit straight, you don't need to worry about them. The ET is always high enough and the wheels aren't that wide as well, so they won't rub. :wink:

Can anyone please advise/help?. I have just bought a mk5 golf tdi in dark grey. It has a set of 18 inch Monza alloys powder coated in black which look awesome. The tyres are 225/40ZR/ 18. The guy I bought the car off said they are on the standard suspension. I would like to have a little more height to the car. The tyres are fitting and looking very similar to the ones in your pics. There is a hands gap on the front but the back ones have the tyre actually tucking under the arch. Would I have got this if the suspension is standard? Haven't had time to take the wheel off and check the suspension yet. I am hoping I will find some coilovers that I can wind up! The back wheels are rubbing when cornering with people in the back. Also one back wheel is more into the arch than the other rear wheel. I can send you pics on your email if you want. Thanks. :happy2:

Love the matte black earlier in the thread - have also seen an R32 in a matte finish blue that looks lovely - time for wrapping quotes I think. Have some slight bodywork scratches at the moment I'm assuming wrapping would cover these? To make it relevant this would be to complement a set of Rosso alloys (I've only seen one set by them so hope they're not a pile of sh*te!?)

Took off my BBS CO's and had the Golf MK7 "Dijon" wheels on my VW Golf 1.6 FSI before I sold it.

Now currently have the 18" R32 "Zolder" wheels on my GTI.

Saw a grey MK5 for sale on Gumtree with Santiago wheels and wondered what they would look like on my silver MK5 so did a quick photoshop. Came out pretty good so thought I'd share here!

Like a bronze gold...

Thumbs up from me. Not OTT but different enough. I think it'd work because the blue paintwork isn't a shouty colour in itself. I like it.

I'm toying with the idea of some kind of gold alloys (or my BBS refurbed in gold) on my red GTI. Should really concentrate on things I actually need first!

Best thing to do if you can is go and see some wheels in the flesh that have been refurbed by a company you might use. Often you'll find things look a little different in a photo. Some of the better outfits will have a display of the different kinds of finishes they do on their premises.

It's a long time since I've had any wheels refurbished so I can't recommend anyone in particular; maybe someone can suggest somewhere decent.

So I am picking up some new wheels which I don't think will fit.

18x9J ET52 with 245/40/18 tyres on, my thoughts are the tyres will need changed to around 215-225 and for the ET I might need a front spacer to clear the strut?

Any thoughts welcome
Title: Re: The MK5/6 Wheel thread!
Post by: jaffa on February 28, 2017, 06:00:41 PM
Probably around a 5mm spacer for the front and I'd go with a 215/40  but depending on how low you are as stretch doesn't suit cars that aren't low
What wheels are they Audi TT by any chance?

Yes Audi TT turbine wheels. The car is on coilovers so running low isn't a huge issue.
Title: Re: The MK5/6 Wheel thread!
Post by: jaffa on March 01, 2017, 10:51:46 PM
I'd personally space out the back around 10mm to get a better fitment and the front around 5mm to clear the strut

Austin 7,5''x18'' 5x112 ET49

They're the factory fitted wheels on the mk7 GTI and GTI PP. In the meantime VW updated the mk7 with its mk7.5 generation.

Had my mk5 GTi for a couple of months now and started to get things sorted, first thing was to get the wheels refurbished, they were originally gold but had lacquer coming off etc so have had them completely stripped and painted in BMW Singapore Grey, the insides all painted and laquered as well!  Next up are the RS6/R8 brakes with 360mm discs to be fitted then full colour change/wrap!

Couple of pics of wheels, plus my other new toy I picked up at the weekend!

What are peoples thoughts on dark grey or black wheels on a black car? My R32 has the standard silver wheels and they'll need a refurb before too long.

Rotiform, bbs, 3sdm, vossen

The amount of concavity is really dependant on the wheel specs

Just got my mk5 GTI and swapped 18" r32 8j alloys for 19" calibre 9j which looks amazing but because I'm using my phone I cant find the option to add photos to show you all. For some reason there is now a knocking noise at the front but when I look nothing is rubbing or too close to be hitting. Could it be because of the wheel size?

Hello all,

This is my first post on this forum so please go easy on me if I do something wrong  :innocent:

I recently picked up a set of (very dirty) bbs ch024 (oem audi 7.5 x 18 ET54)

(https://i345.photobucket.com/albums/p379/nkts_cars/6_zpsyaqxlifs.jpg) (https://s345.photobucket.com/user/nkts_cars/media/6_zpsyaqxlifs.jpg.html)

I am having a really tough time finding either vw or bbs center caps for these wheels and was wondering if anyone could point me in the right direction?

Cheers

NK

That's all relative really, depends on what width/ET/diamter the wheels are, what height you're running the car, what tyres you have etc. If it helps I have 19" BBS CH026 which are 8" wide ET50. Im running an 11mm spacer to clear the 18z and that is bare minimum. I believe people say you need 12mm spacers with Pescara's to clear. Other wheels have more clearance so if I were to run an OZ Ultraleggera in the same size setup as I have currently they have more brake clearance due to the spoke/centre layout.

What setup are you looking to run?

Anyone have a photo of the edition 30 wheels on a standard red gti? Just wanting to get an idea how it’ll look without all the plastics painted red. Thanks.
