Black 8x18 Borbet FF1’s in 45mm offset sourced through Tyreleader.
Light, strong, OEM quality and looks.
Add Polo centre caps.
Use original bolt caps.
225/40/18 tyres, Goodyear or Michelin.
Bear in mind your wheel rims will be a few millimetres closer to the kerbs so just be careful.

Job done. 
BMW Golf R knock off
Prior to that a couple dozen warmed over VWs

You can seemingly get 235 40 r18 but not 225.

Hi Fred, I checked again. My bad. I obviously have a sketchy memory. The tyres were not Michelin PS4Ss but Michelin Pilot Super Sports 225 x 40 x 18 @ £350.
MK 7.5, Indium Grey, 5dr, DSG, keyless, pan roof, voice activation.
