Wow ure car color and wheels are hot!! What color is that btw? Laser blue?cmdrfire said:Hi all,
First post here! I've had my MkV GTI for just over a year now... last october I put on some new wheels, some 19" River Wheels R1s. These babies are really nice, they're lighter than even the 17" Detroits that the car comes with as standard in the EU (I don't know how much the US 17" wheels weigh).
The ride has improved significantly since I've put them on, and the handling is just superb now - some idiot car wash scratched them a couple of months ago, and so while they were off to be refurbed I had my 18" Denvers on and the difference was unbelievable. BBS lightweight hollow-cast or not, the handling with the newer Rivers was unparalleled.
EDIT - sorry for low quality pic, I got that from my cameraphone. I've just cleaned my car today and I've got my proper digital camera with me so I'll take some clean pics today.
Thanks dude :smile:YenPxxx said:Wow ure car color and wheels are hot!! What color is that btw? Laser blue?
Too bad the stock wheels on the GTI are so damn heavy cause they actually look good for stock wheels. Ure 19's look even better though and to think you actually saved weight in switching from stock is great. Hard to tell from the pic but is your car lowered?
VW USA if ure listening please bring this blue to North America :bow:
