Re: Which wheels?? (Percy311)

I have pondered about this also, and everytime i can't find a justification for getting a non black wheel. Everything just looks better with a black wheel IMO. <p>BTW, if you do get these, post some pics, i might get some too! <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/biggrin.gif" BORDER="0">

Re: (Percy311)

I like them, I had been considering them before I found my other wheels. I am interested in seeing how they look on our cars, because some wheels look bad when they aren't on the vehicle yet and some look awesome until you put them on. I think these should look pretty good on your car, especially if you get the red inserts color matched (if they aren't close enough to begin with). Looking forward to the pics!

Re: (al820)

LOL. Dang guys, I don't think the wheels are <I>that</I> bad: I'm awaiting pics on the actual car before I pass my judgement. Some wheels look bad if they aren't on a car, others the opposite. Post pics Percy!
