Anxiously awaiting this pic, more the wheel size than color I'm sold on the anthracite for a black RYes! We have our last sample set of 17x8.5" ET43 wheels in Satin Bronze showing up within the next few days. Those will be wrapped in 235/45-17 Michelin AS4+ tires for a more street-focused fitment, as we plan to do some photoshoots on a couple of All-Tracks and Sportwagens. We should be able to have content to share within the next couple of weeks.
Is there a plan date yet for the intro of silver?
Been looking forward to these wheels for my R. +1 for silver.We do not have any plans to include Race Silver for the initial launch of these wheels. However, it could potentially be an option that we offer later in the year depending on demand. Unfortunately, I can't make any promises at this time.
While I am unable to share our design template files for these wheels, I would be more than happy to confirm clearance if you happen to have a template for that particular brake kit. Over the past few weeks, we have had quite a few BBK-equipped MK7 Golf owners reach out with brake templates to confirm clearances with these new wheels, and we have been adding this info to our database for other enthusiasts to utilize moving forward.Geirsen - Any chance you have a PDF fitment template file of the SM-10 17x9's? I run a Renault Megane caliper on my GTI and it is a bit wider than the Macan, StopTechs, and TTRS brake swaps.
At this time, we have only shot two GTI's equipped with lower-than-stock suspension. However, one of the cars we have shot isn't lowered too much, so maybe these two pictures can give you a better idea as to the fitment difference between 17" and 18" diameters:Having a hard time with wanting the 17" vs 18". Any pictures of a car on stock ride height with the wheels by chance?
