Opinion’s on theses

 Not sure what colour my clubby is dolphin grey   I’ve got black Pretoria’s on at the moment but I’m thinking black you just loose in the hole  (if that makes sense)

For me, the design is a little fussy - they look very similar in design to the Vossen alloys that Volkswizard fitted to his mk8 GTI Clubsport. They’re also diamond cut, which for me would be a big no-no for the following reasons; poor durability of lacquer on diamond cut surface, susceptibility to white worm corrosion, usually can’t be refurbished more than twice, easily damaged by inexperienced tyre cutters. (Edit; Oops; tyre cutters should be tyre fitters! :grin:)

Just my opinion. It’s your car though so if you like them, buy them - assuming they’re available to fit the mk8 Golf with a sensible offset.

Yeah I get that SRGTD  with a little fussy   Also my ocd with the cleaning would probably do my swede in  :tongue:  they do a silver or a gunmetal I think  the size is 19” 8.5  offset 45  so would be ok

I agree with everything SRGTD said.

I’ll add to that in that I spent the best years of my young life scrubbing fiddly BBS wheels with a small brush. Never again! Life’s too short.
Simple twin five spoke designs work very well on mk8’s and are much easier to clean.

Hi Verve34,  I can't add much to the other responses as I agree with them and have been through the whole wheel conundrum.   Too intricate for me and I would never, ever have diamond cut wheels - too expensive and not at all durable.

I agree with you on the black wheels - they get lost in the wheelarch/in the dark, so I would go with any other colour.  As least you'll be able to see what you've spent your money on.

Far too much cleaning involved. Stick to plain and easyclean
