Which one is better?

I want to hear some opinion from you guys.
This is my old 06 GTI with Rial Imola Race rims 19x8.5 et 38

and this is my current 09 GTI with Porsche classic reps 19x8 et 45


Long story short, I sold Rial wheels to someone when I sold my 06 GTI years ago and he is selling wheels right now. So I was thinking about getting them back.
Before I contack the seller, I wanted to ask you guys.
What do you think about the Rial rims on GTI? and which rims do you think is better?


To help you decide easier, here's photoshoped images,
reference GTI photo belongs to other guy in this forum(Thanks for the great photo !!)
Rial Imola Race

Current setup image- Porsche reps

Porsche reps with powder coated.




Thanks guys in advance.

With Rial, yes it was. As I remember, I put 225/35/19 on Rial wheel but it rubbed when I pass bump or hard turn. Suspension setup was eibach spring w/ stock.

With current coilover setup with porsche reps, I'm ok with it. Actual offset was et57. The adapter I used was 15mm, so total offset was ET42. I'm putting 235/35/19 right now.

Rial rims FTW, but IMO the offset/width does not make them worthwhile for a DD over the porsche set up.

Thanks guys,

The reason why I sold Rial at that time was I sold 06 gti and also I thought it wasn't worth for $600 of repair fee for bent lips and some cosmetic surjeries for old wheels even though I really liked the design.
Also it was little bit too wide for me like Electricalbox mentioned.
Right now he is selling those for really cheap price, so that's why I'm thinking about it.

Should I get them? or just save money for other event?..

Thanks guys. Vote result so far..

Rial 9 : 6 Porsche reps
Hm.. What should I do..

The only thing that I worry about is the offset/ width of Rial wheels.

Will they fit on my car though? I know I already had it before and I know it rubs, but how can I make it work on my car? I'm sure 19x8.5 ET38 with 235/35/19 will not fit on lowered GTI, right? Any idea please??
