Hey guys

Can't decide on wheels to go on my wagon. Got these set of wheels fairly cheap. Have no running issues, not sure if these suits car well? Wheels are from GTD MK6. Car will be lowered soon 40mm drop.
Any opinions are appreciated.

They suit the car but do look very normal in my opinion.

Thanks
It will look better when lowered. Just couldn't find any mk7 17" wheels cheap enough.

These cost me £300 including tyres (with good tread). After selling stock wheels, total cost for upgrade £50.
I am really after stock 17" mk7 wheels. I am thinking Dijon.
Eibach Pro Kit is ordered and on its way from DE, should improve look a bit.

I think for looks you need 19" due to the size of the estate. 

 

will be nice to see how it sits with a 40mm drop though. please post some pics when done :)

Well decided against these wheels as wanted genuine mk7 clean look.
Picked genuine Dijon wheels and lowered on Eibach Pro Kit

look really good with the drop and those wheels are definitely more OEM looking. Suit it well. 

 

If you don't mind me asking, how much was the labour to fit the springs ? Really tempted to get some VWR springs for my GTI

Depending where you take it, cost me £50 for 4 corners at local garage.
Rear springs straight forward job but fronts bit pain in bum.

£50 is definitely do able :)

 

Yes, I read that the front either require the hub nut to be removed or lots of messing about and wiggling. 

 

Thanks for the info

The first set of wheels from the Mk6 suit the car better than the second. Maybe it's the black inserts between the spokes or the flat sides but they compliment the car well. The second set just look like a bog standard Golf estate.
