Changed wheels....

So I tracked down a ridiculously mint set of 18'' Detroits.





Actually hard to get in a pic the shine on these wheels. Fitted them for now but may stick the vancouvers back on at some stage



What u guys think?

I think those are the mk5 wheels. Better than the detroits imo.

Yeah, look like Huffs?? Either way nice find. Pirellis too, must have been sitting in someone's garage. Just beware of any dry rot if the tread lasts that long!

Detroits are painted black inners, Huffs are more of a dark silver/gunmetal painted inners.

No, Denvers are 17", silver painted. Not machined. The Huffs are 18" machined face with dark gray inserts. Came on MK5 cars.
