    When you factor tyres and refurb in Ash it's clear which ones are cheaper ;)

    Just saying. :)

    Yeah agree with you fully. But he said his budget was £700 so if he was able to get the ones i posted for that price and then wait till he got the extra money for tyres. Wouldnt be so bad

    thanks guys been looking at wheels all day now and an more confused then when i started. as i said i'm new to all this and am not sure what i'm doing , the car is mainly used by the wife as the run around but i still want it looking nice , it will never be a show car as i have 3 kids who can destroy anything just by looking at it and the wife thinks that curbs are there to bounce of and keep you on the road when your not looking what your doing, i'm not going to spend a ton of cash on it and not looking to be a trend setter, just want to spend what i can wisely and maybe grab a barging here and there and get some sort of cool looking car out of it , i do like the tt rs 19" but at 2k off e-bay abit to rich for me and not sure that 19" are the best option for the wife? but they do come in 18" but cant find any oem only rep's. so still looking.

    I'd go with something like the S-Line wheels in 7.5x18" (or something in 8x18) and run 225/40s. That should give the wheels some protection against the curbs (though I think a little "training" is in order tbh :sm4:). 19s are not really that protected on 35 series tyres.

    does anyone know if i could fit these to a TDi Sport 8P1 without running coilovers? eBay - The UK's Online Marketplace im planning on buying some JOM coilovers in the future, or would it be better to get the coilovers first?

    I'm pretty sure when Ash listed em before they are ET45 Front and ET35 rear. You just need 215 and slight camber Ste, so buy em you big mincer
