Help me choose....

So I've been looking for wheels but i mainly want silver ultraleggeras since they have that hyper silver finish and just look so nice and simple with the perfect amount of spokes but i cant find them for sale and i can get rota torques for a good price...not sure if i want rotas but i can get them with tires for just under 600.
If somone can photoshop some wheels on this would be nice

Also a set of konig runaways in hyper grey to be chopped on

and enkei RPF-1's in silver or gunmetal. I can get these also for a decent price but not sure if they'd look good. All wheels in 18"s.

Not looking to threadjack, but why is it that I always see those stock mkvi wheels in pictures (the first link here), but you can't build a car with them on vw.com, and I can't seem to find them anywhere for purchase? I thought they'd make pretty decent winter wheels, even if they look heavy, though maybe they're 18's. Anyone have any info on this?

Re: wheel choice, it's a personal design preference, but stronger and lighter is always good if you have any sort of sporting intentions with the car, of course. Personally, I think the design of the car is shown off best with chunky wheels.

Those wheels are called "Bilbao" sized 18x7.5" and available as an option on the Golf GT in the European market

I also think the design of the car is shown well with chunky wheels but i also noticed this car looks good with multi spoke wheels. Reg 5 spoke wheels dont seem to cut it. I could get some SSR wheels too but i cant picture this car on 5 spoke gunmetal wheels for some reason. If someone could do those photoshops i'd appreciate it
