Winter wheels are becoming really popular on the VW scene they have for a long time with the show cars but even the not so show car owners are now doing it!!
It means your car looks a little "less" modified or even ruins the look of the car but they are a sensible option if you drive your car on a daily basis. Most get a small rim like from 19's (polished) to a retro (refurbed) 16'' so that you get more tyre and more grip (arguable) but at the end of the day the salt, grime, and genrally crap of the roads wont ruin your expensive wheels!! Also its not the end of the world if you hit some black ice and hit the kerb.
I was just wondering if you think this will become apart of the vaux scene? Is it too anal for us or do you think it should be adopted? The VW culture has now even brought the "winter wheels look" into the magazines by featuring cars that have the winter look that have been featured in the past (admitadly a few years back!!) also the winter wheels would be some peoples show wheels :roll:
I doubt the vaux scene would get that way but I think its basically a good idea and does show a lot of care for your car......whats your thoughts?
