    wheels on the mk3

    ok ive spoke to a few people about this and im still not 100% sure what to do

    ive a mk3 2ltr sport in red (well pink ) and im looking to get some wheels for it once ive lowered it 35mm in the next few weeks! now ive 2 options and this is where im stuck!

    1. Do i go for 18's as every mk3 gsi ive seen has them (not sure what type yet)

    or

    2. Get a set of mk4 late spec SXI wheels which are 16's and paint them Anthracite ??


    if anyone has a pic of the sxi wheels can u please post it as i can get a friend to photo shop it


    cheers Kev

    Has it got the the gsi kit? If not, 18's will look huge on a standard car, even lowered.

    Mk4 SXi's in anthracite sound interesting, that'd be my choice! Subtle, yet stylish!

    if you get the car low enough the 16's in anthracite could look really cool

    Be different go for the sxi wheels in anthracite. 18s might look a bit big without the gsi kit mate but you are getting kit arent you so its your call.

    think the 16's it will be to be different will have to speak to Techie bout his mate doing the painting!!

    im only lowering 40mm at first but may go to 60mm (not sure as travel to france alot)

    not a fan of 18s on the mk3. nice on low on 16s is the way forward and keep the bodywork clean
