2017 GTI S 6spd manual

19 x 8.5 ET45 Rotiform KPS Wheels
245/35 19 Michelin Pilot Sport A/S 3+ tires
BC Racing BR Series Coilovers set at 0 camber

Very very minimal rubbing, front and rear, only when going over large bumps and dips at speed. Dampening is set to 15 clicks from soft. Other than that, there are no rubbing issues. Will be rolling my fenders soon, and will be getting an alignment in a week, and setting the front camber negative a couple degrees. That will fix the minimal rubbing issues. When I didnít have coilovers, and was on stock suspension, there was no rubbing.

Can you please post some more pictures with the overlays on?

Here are a couple of photos that aren't as pretty, but might give you a better idea of how they look. I picked these up from Anwaltdesigns (Etsy seller) for less than $60, but there is a similar kit available from Klii for more like $120. If I'm being picky, the radius at the bend in the spoke doesn't exactly match and causes you to have a slightly inconsistent border no matter how careful you are with the placement, but overall I'm happy with the quality of the kit, especially for the price. Based on other items I've gotten from Klii, I would imagine theirs is higher quality, but I don't know if it's worth 2x the cost, especially if you're on the fence about getting a kit.

Back from the body shop, no more plate holes. I also have the latest revision radiator now, the original part was discontinued by VW, and this one has a higher capacity. When life gives you debris falling from a truck, make truck-debris-ade.... Or something.

Thank you for providing me a template.

Just wondering how would the Nogaro wheels look like in gunmetal grey....
