    new alloys on my mk5 ideas and suggestions welcome!!

    Im looking at getting new alloys for my mk5 sporthatch and spotted few that I like but which is better to get 17" or 18"? apparently one mate of mine says if I get 18s it wont necesarily need lowering but another mate of mine reckons 17s will look better then slightly lower it!! Iv left them 2 arguing over it im just the "female" and dont know anything haha so any other suggestions would be helpful!!!

    In my opinion you still need to lower the car if your on 17/18/19s

    No matter what you do, lower it, will look sweet as ****

    This is my old sporthatch on 18s and lowered 50mm front and 30mm back

    Aslong as you get the correct tyre size the diamiter of the alloy + tyre should be the same, and therefore would not make a difference in the gap between the alloy and the arches. (If that makes sence)

    Id get the 50/30 kit of lmf-vauxhall for £135, well worth it.
