    what size? as they are a dish wheel i think a 17 would look slightly to small, maybe an 18 would look good on a comfortable drop? Cheers Babs

    Yeah you'll be able to drop it no problem If the offset is correct!

    As the spokes dont go to the edge on them they do look a size smaller than they actually are so 18's is a must!

    ON A DOWNER they only do them Rims in a 17"
    THE STATEMENTS MADE ABOVE ARE MERELY MY OPINION AND SHOULD NOT BE INTERPRETED AS STATEMENTS OF FACT UNLESS OTHERWISE STATED

    If that is the shark rim they go rihjt up to 19" which would look better and will still fit under your arches
    The bitterness of poor quality is remembered long after the sweetness of low price is forgotten.

    nice looking wheel that but would need to be bigger than 17" otherwise they will look quite small.

    Depending on ofset lowering 30mm om 17s and 18s will be fine, mines dropped 35mm on 20's

    Nice choice Ryan!

    If you consider 17" small. Mine is a stock one at 15", you wouldn't call it small but would be best described as micro

    By the way, just curious, what is the stock size tyre of a MK4 in UK? Also 15" or 16"? tks

    Nice wheels, but 17's will look far to small, you will need at least 18's, but 19's will pull it off SO much better imo
