    Chop Request...

    Saw these wheels on a sales brochure for VW's CC:

    Wondering how it'll look on a GTI:

    Also, don't they look very similar?
    Lack of charisma can be fatal.

    Thats actually part of the reason why I am curious about it....they are similar, but less roundy and more angular-y.....

    The offset is slightly different and they are .5" wider wheel....

    ^^^ That's a help. I see why you'd want to do this... less fussy than below. A more serious look.

    I agree. They're one of the best looking rims around, so just leave them.
