The rims are finally in: I like how they look: Now I need the tint: Change the grill: not to much else:




This is the car now with the rims on it, I apreciate everyone input and advice. I am happy with what I chose they are heavier, But I dont plan on racing my car anyway. Its more for profiling.

Thanks for the input

Yes I do want to paint the bottom half, it would make it look better. I wanna lower it, but in my area, we have to many bad roads. On my old car A3 Jetta, I messed up two pair of 16"s, Now I have these w/ 17's. I cant afford to buy new tire and wheels every other month when I hit a pothole.

No offence, but why must you type HUGE and in blue?
Note that no one else does. It is considered YELLING on most message boards (the large type) and showing off (the colored text).
Just thought I'd mention it politely before someone rips into you. :)

Car's nice though.

Come on Warped, no need for that. Rims are a personal choice.

Why would lowering your car allow more damage to your wheels?

I apreciate

Hello All I apreciate the advice and comments, Yes rims are a personal choice I chose these wheels, because I wanna behave, I am treating the car like a Sport Sedan, not like a Tuner Car. IN OCT 2003, i had a fixed up A3 jetta, lowered, rims, tint, KN, al that stuff, Totalled hit by a truck, 3 days later, bought a 2001 VR6 Jetta, 15 hours later Totalled it, Speed Balling on Highway. Did not even have the car for a whole day. So the passat is to slow me down, Styling, profiling no more speeding. WELL TRYING NOT To.

please write "I promise not to total my Passat." 100 times on the chalk board. :)

thanks for killing the big blue text.

some like your wheels, some don't, hey, if we all liked the same thing it would be dulllllllll.
