So i found a set of wheels, they are a OEM VW wheel however they are one of my favs as well as alot of the other vdub guys.

They are 17x7 Long Beaches

Same bodystyle, different headlights though and grille.

here is a pretty good idea of what they will look like on my car.



Gettin em for 400 with brand new tires so im stoked.

I've been away for a while, but thought you had a Focus.

Wheels are cool.

what robbie did isnt uncommon, alot of nissan/infiniti ppl do this like putting g35 wheels or 350z wheels on like an i30, g2, altima etc and they look real nice

Yup. There's some VW guys that put Mercedes, Porsche, or Audi wheels on their cars... My current wheels are the same as my sister's Audi A4, except mine are painted gunmetal

And robbie, I think they look good. OEM ftw biglaugh.gif

Well after much debate with myself and finding out to make long beaches look right (spacers and 205 tires as opposed to the fac. 225's.

I will be ordering these next week from wheelsnext.



I think they look amazing have the deep dish like i want and are a simple five spoke they closely resemble some keskins i want......only without the 1200$ price haha.

Let me know what you think, just wanting opinions.

When you actually get the wheel and put them on your car, I will give you an opinion.

I like the choice to go with wheelsnext. That's whom I got mine from.

Jmartin i do still have the bumper. It's primered and ready for paint right now. it also has the lower grille with it and i have a blacked out SVT front grille as well.

Drifting all the turbo parts are gone, started a new turbo build or the GTI. So i used that money to start buying parts for it. All i have left is my AEM Wideband.

Aray ill be sure to post em up. Apparently wheelsnext has great shipping times so as soon as i get them ill be putting them on the car icon_cool.gif

It took about a week to get mine. Really nice packaging, that assured nothing would happen to product in shipping.

sweet glad to find that out.

i have just been looking for a good site with free shipping. remembered you had said something about them.

And at tirerack i could find a rim i liked that i would want to pay the money for to put on my car.

Then i found these and like i said i had been searching for something with a really deep lip while retaining a somewhat simple squarish look to incorerate the body lines of my car. Waiting for my school money to arrive next week then time to order!
