I have no idea where you got the 67,6 mm from. Cause the MK V Golf only has a centerbore of 57,1 mm
Probably because I keep getting the centerbore of VAG products confused with Mercedes-Benz centerbores. :bonk: 57.1 mm it is...

Originally, I was thinking of buying the RS4 wheel from Stratmosphere:





However, I'm now thinking of going with this wheel:

OZ Tribe Evo



I really like the black on black - or in this case graphite on black

I am 100% positive that 11.5lbs is a typo on Tire racks part despite repeated claims that they double checked the weight, they are only a cast rim (a very light cast rim based on the weight of the 18's) but forged wheels are typically significantly lighter than cast and the lighest 17" wheels I know of are all around 13 lbs (SSR Comps, Mugen MF10's, Racing Hart CP-035, Volk Ce28N).

Beyond that go too OZ's very own website the weight of a 17x7 wheel (not even that wide) is listed at 7.2 kgs thats 15.8 lbs, why would a 17x8 be 11.5?
