wheel decisions??

Post  Ben on Wed Feb 22, 2012 9:52 pm

hey guys and girls,

I'm looking at a set of wheels to go onto the golf just really not sure what size to get, either its a set of 15x7's or 16x8's? but i'm not sure which will look best...

anyone had experience of running these sizes and lowering, obviously i know the 16's may struggle to tuck but i don't want the wheel to look too small or too big?

sorry if this is a stupid question these are the options i have.....

15x7



16x8



you may agree it's a hard decision Sad

thanks

Benjy

15x8 not available ? Id go 16's mate. I've seen 16x9 on a mk2 but im sure it had g60 arches. Sure they"ll fit, with not too much hassle

i wish they were wider but they have a ET20 so there seems to be quite a dish, I think the gold on the helios blue would look cool, but the 16x8 have the silver face with the gold bolts and that would be aswome too!!
