Satisfy me with your 17's !

Post by Thatratman » Tue Jan 22, 2019 8:25 pm

Really struggling between 17's & 18's on my Mk 4 in pure grey. Im down a lot of back roads with pot holes so worry about running 18's with a lower profile so was thinking of 17's with a 215 50 tire so please show me some of your 17's just to satisfy me that they aren't too small! Cheers all

Your 17s will still look like your running a pram wheel on a monster truck. I ran 18s for a bit with 45s hankooks tyres and 80% of my business is in rural Kent. So that how I felt to. Recently I changed to 19s with 35s but now using uniroyals. Which have a softer side wall and they run nicer than the 45s. So really it’s all about the tyres I think. If you don’t drive like a #%*€ then your be fine. People are driving range rovers and having troubles with pot holes.

Both good looking vans.
I Guess i could go with 18's on a 50 profile to avoid any possible pothole damage although that may be a bit too big? Currently have 17'' rockhamtons on my caddy with 50 profile but will be putting OZ's on when the new one arrives

I’m liking that a lot, great looking van that bud if you don’t mind me saying it would be complete with a slide rail cover

How have you lowered it, what kit?

Thanks mate , someone else asked if I had any more plans for it in the members gallery and I said probably just rail covers and a remap!!
Bought it brand new last year and got vw to lower it for me before I picked it up , eibach pro kit .
