    Arrow OEM Perfection

    Finally got round to washing the car and taking pictures with the new rims on, as people have been pestering me . They are Volkswagen Phaeton Helios wheels. 19" x 8.5J ET45, I'm running Pirelli P Zero Nero 215/35/19 on them. I'll be running a 10mm spacer on the back, as the back looks SUCKED IN I will put them on next week.

    I bought them from USA brand new, as it was much much much cheaper than buying new over here. You just can't find them 2nd hand, otherwise I would have bought a used set and had them furbed.

    I'm over the moon with them, they really do look like 20"s and make my car ALOT lower. For me they are one of the best oem looking wheels, hence, for me, they are OEM perfection



















    Thanks for looking, please feel free to say whatever you feel

    What tyre size are they, they look very narrow? Not a fan of the VW centre badge, but assue you will be changing them? Maybe not.

    A nice wheel but they look just too big on the car IMO. BUt if you like em, (clearly you do!) then that's all that matters!
    Like the rest fo the car, great colour on the sportback. Reminds me of the Sierra Cossie Moonstone Blue!!

    Cheers guys, forgot to put the tyre size, I've added it now. 215/35/19 Pirelli P Zero Neros. I'm going to stick with the VW centres as I am Mr. OEM I know its abit dodgy having VW on Audi, but these wheels are so sick for me, the badge can stay.

    Thanks again

    They are nice wheels, but way to low tbh, doesnt suit the car at all mate, you know me tell it as it is, as you always say if you like then who cares, but way to low & a kerb has got there name on already.

    But you are the WHEELWHORE & you should change your username to this.

    You put the VW badge on upside down on this wheel, must try harder, all on the right way or you will lose scene points!

    nice wheels indeed, but too big for the wheel arch when you're running that low to be honest, it looks a bit odd that the wheel arch gap is huge at the bottom around the sills, and no gap at all at the top, looks like the wheels are off centre.

    They are nice looking wheels though! good choice.

    Beautiful mate ... they look top. Those wheels with those rubber bands on would last about 2 minutes on the roads over here!

    I'll have to be a little more practical!

    Car looks great too ... may try and tap up your valeting services when I visit a friend of mine who lives up in Alsager.

    ...still looking at your motor.
    Side skirts too?

    Pukka colour.

    Love the 'budweiser' style dust caps... they'd have gone missing in no time in Essex.... lol Some Essex lad would've popped the cap and tried drinking out of 'em. lol
