16" BBS RX-II's (G4 Cabrio rims) on Mk2 GTi?

Postby BillyBob » Mon Feb 08, 2010 10:07 pm

As the topic states, the Stealths have come off the Mk2 in the interest of ride quality and eliminating clearance issues on the 60 mm drop... I'm running a set of 15's in the meantime, but my tail's itching again..

So, I've been offered a set of 16" RX-II G4 Cabrio rims + cash difference in trade for the Stealths, and I'm seriously considering going that route.. Does anyone have a picture of these on a big-bumper Mk2? And should I decide not to fit them, what do these typically sell for?

Thanks in advance!

Similar to this, I think it can work:

the only problem you going to have is buying tires .
16" are expensive seeing that you going to be fittin 205/40/16
the tires in that size are usually not high speed rated tires .
rather stick with the 17 or 15

Well, I decided to go through with it, and I must say... I like 'em... a lot.

They need a set of spacers to help the offset and stance, but the look works on the car for me...

Thanks to LVH - hope you're happy with the Stealths!

Pardon the crummy iPhone pics!
