Nothing makes more difference to your car’s appearance than its wheels. And of course, a lighter-weight wheel makes a big contribution to the ride, handling and responses of any car through reducing the all-important unsprung weight. Yet at the same time, nothing is more important than the safety and reliability of your car’s wheels.
The wheels are supplied with replacement, uprated wheel bolts and designed to retain the standard Volkswagen (or other-branded) centre caps.
Most importantly, our testing has shown it to be an exceptionally strong wheel, as well-suited to the demands of the track as it is to the day to day use of road driving.
The 18″ x 8″ wheel, with an offset of ET45 suits cars such as Golf, Jetta, Leon and Octavia. The 18″x8″ also comes with an offset of ET35 for wider-bodied cars such as Scirocco, Beetle and TT. The 18″x9″ rim is only suitable for the wider arched cars, and looks simply perfect on these models. The PCD is 5×112, with a centre bore of 57.1mm. In other words, the perfect size for your Volkswagen. We recommend a tyre size of 225/40 R18 for these wheels for Golfs to maintain wheelarch clearance, or 235/40 R18 for Sciroccos and TTs which have greater clearance.
