SO I have three wheels I really like, but I can't decide if I want 18's or 19's and which of the four styles.

They will go on this car, a 2002 W8 Passat


First, I really like these because they remind me of the SLR McLaren and those cool wheels. I dunno if they will look good on a W8 passat with 2+" of drop but I think they will look good.

Second these, they are a modest quite wheel. But I am thinking they are too subtle.

OR! Do I go with A8L wheel? 18's possibly? maybe 19's?


and lastly, I think these are the ones I am leaning towards since they have some dish to them and look similar to the A8L wheels but better



which would you guys suggest?

I'm more the subtle/functional guy. I had 18" BBS RE's on my 6 speed. Nice satin finish and were only 20.9lbs per wheel (forged). They were lighter & stronger than the stock 17 inchers. I don't think they make them anymore tho. I wanted a strong wheel with the added weight of the W8. I didn't want to be bending wheels every other day living in NJ at the time. I had them for 3 years and drove the streets of Philly and NYC without ever bending a wheel..

Get the 1st set you choose the maclaren lookin ones and get 18s. 19's are to heavy. Just be slammed with whatever you get and stretch tires for sure

uuugh don't EVER stretch the tires. They look horrible. but each person has their on opinion. Personally i HATE stretch, and poke. I think it makes the car look retarded. Go with whatever wheels you like. You might be able to look through using the search function and find the wheels you're thinking of getting with other members that may have them.
