Thanks.

Kind of tempted now to see how they would look against my gray TCR - especially with the Matt finish.

Some photos of them on, I'm running 225/35R19 Michelin PS4S', personally I wouldn't go with the 235/35R19 as they would be too wide.

If anyone has any questions let me know.

They look really good willni, much better offset than the Golf versions.  :cool:

Thanks folks.

To summarise:

  • The T-Roc / Passat Pretoria alloys do fit.
  • They are naturally the golf Pretorias with a 6mm spacer.
  • You can run GTI 225/35R19 fitment tyres on them.
  • They are a lot cheaper versus the lightweight version.

Downsides
  • No alternative colour choice, Matte Graphite colour only.
  • Heavier than the golf pretorias

Only downside is you don't get a choice in colour they all come in Matte Graphite colour, but given the price you can factor in a full refurb into the price and still see them as a great alternative.
they weigh more than a golf Pretoria too.
