Great list, i suggest not getting 19s since it looks like performance matters to you.

18s with a nice drop would look good and perform great.

Also VMR don't make the lightest wheels, though they make nice looking wheels.

Ya, I was thinking of that.... I am going for both, GREAT LOOKS, and performance. I definately am not looking for a 9 second GTI, but just want to un-restrict it! haha Let the ponies be free! :burnrubber: VMR's are nice, and dont cost 1500 a wheel! haha.. but like i said, I am up to all suggestions, and definately will investigate VMR further before purchase. If they weigh a ton, i will pass and try and find something just as nice and little lighter.

for all the gti's out there the first thing i notice is the wheels, it really sets it apart from the stock gt's with huffs. anyways welcome to vw.

5% all around? Can you see anything through the windows?:) You know that only 35% all around is allowed in IL.
