the pcd is both 4x100 but the offset might be wrong and the centre bore wont be the same

Opel rims on a VW is a sin! :x

Rather save your $$$ a bit longer and buy a decent BBS rim or something.

bru those rims look hot on a citi golf. I think if you getting it for a good price take it. Seen a few citi golfs with those rims on so it should be an easy fit.

I once bought old style 15 " Hockenheims from a guy who had them on an opel astra, and the offset was way wrong, I had to fit 8mm spacers front & back to make them clear the calipers in front and the coilsprings at the back on my Mk1 GTS.

Edit: It did look wicked though - the wider stance !

Standard offset on the older (Pre Astra H and Corsa D) Opel models was 49. The newer cars have a 39 offset.

TSW always gives 40 or 45 offset wheels as options for Opel drivers :roll:

Rather get stuff designed for your car.

the offset is perfect as it is a 38.... the PCD is evenally matched ,the only problem is the centre bore which will need to opened up a mm or 2....

i suggest you go for it brother man, i had them on my MK2 GTI, sold them this past monday , what a mistake, they look king and on a golf . they suited my MK2, but look even better on a MK1

hey if you dont want it can i have it PM me if you not going to buy it....

Thnx guys....

CD's do look good on a MK2...i've seen them on a white Mk2 and it looks awesum! 8)

Hmmm u guyz got me thinking......i originally wanted velo rims but then thot itz abit too common...and i can't seem 2 find any other 15" rim that would look good on a golf 1.

Any other suggestions? Apart 4rm those irresistable bbs rs rimz which are too xpensiv 4 my pocket :(

I need rims soon coz my front rim is slightly buckled so dont wana be driving around like that for too long.
