One thing they show on a skidpad, is ultimate tire grip, not how well it performs in transition. With nearly the same tire on all of the larger rims, of course there would be little difference in skidpad results. For transition, switching to a 16 vs a 15 made a huge difference on both my Passat and my wife's Golf with very little tradeoff.
I'm considering purchasing a nice set of 17" Denver wheels to put on my 2003 Passat Wagon. I've seen a few photos of folks that have put Detroit wheels on their Passat, but I can't seem to find any with Denvers. Anyone have a pic they can post? Thanks!
Wondering if these will fit, they are 18"x8, 57.1 Center Bore with a +41 offset. I think they will, however what would be a reasonable size tire to run without throwing the speedo off too much, and preventing rubbing?
I've got a great set of OEM Madras I run in the good weather. I have the factory VW logo center caps, but would rather run a BBS logo. Does anyone know exactly what part I would look for or where to get them. Thanks in advance.
This is the opportunity for you to review a tire you own or have alot of expierence with. I would recommend the following format for the review:
1. The Brand/Model and Size ( Example: Goodyear Eagle F1 225/45R17) Also can include price and where purchased.
2. Tell us about your driving style.(...
Hello. I have Continental ContiViking Contact 5.
I noticed that the wheels on the left side have the pattern opposite way than on the right. What is right here? The tires dont habe an direction arrow. For me it seems that the tire on left side is correct.
