I’ve ordered some 55mm VW wheel stickers from a place in Preston, Lancs.

Think 56mm fit too, I ordered some for my sons Golf off eBay, they came quite fast and were good

Looking good Chas.

They do set it off nicely.

As for pressures just go with 36 which I think is what the 225 is anyway. Even though slight difference I still stick to the pressure for that wheel size.

Thanks rajb. I’m very pleased with how they look, just need my VW centre wheel stickers to arrive & finish the look. Cheers, Chas.

I thought I would post this link here as its wheel related, this car has (I think) Bola FLC wheels on it, first time I've seen them on a Mk7.5:

Why is a TCR on 235/35R19 36PSI, but a Mk7.5 PP on 225/35R19 41PSI? Can I safely run lower than 41PSI  for better traction?

That's a good question to which I don't know. One word of caution though, you can be fined up to £2500 and get 3 points on your licence per tyre that is not correctly inflated.
