These would be new rims

I'm leaning towards these https://dtm.co.nz/assets/Marlin/WEBW-NICESSENMB.jpg

OR these (Plus making them black): https://dtm.co.nz/assets/Marlin/WEBW-REVW5573BKF.jpg

The 2nd link is the OEM Clubsport S rims, but I can get replica's made

I'd just be adding the weight back on that I gained from replacing the heavy stock exhaust with the milltek one, I think its something like 15 or 20kg weight saving

18 x7.5 reps ?

do you know the offset and weight ?

factory 18s are heavy, black paint probably makes them heavier.

Mk5 Golf - Jetta - Eos / Re: 235/40/18s on Stock GTI Rims Anyone doing it?

How are you finding them?

* Did you notice fuel economy decrease?
* Did you notice extra grip?
* Any difference in handling around corners?
* How far do the tyres stick out from the body - can you post some pictures please?

Thanks

Im considering a similiar setup which would involce the 235/40/18 tyres together with some new black rims and all the badges blacked out

Hennie - can you reccomend someone on the shore who can black out the badges and also repaint the gti's red calipers?

I have new OEM replica ED30 wheels if that's of any interest.

Regarding your query?
Absolutely - Go see Custom Coating on the shore.
They can do it all. Best part is they are extremely skilled in their profession.

Let him know I referred you. Should look after you a little better.

1+2 makes a huge difference, beware no. 2 will introduce more cabin noise
I did mine because the old ones were split and replaced them with the SuperPro bushes. I didn't really notice any difference in NVH

just a little balloony look

It only took me 2 days to get used to the look. I quite like it now.

Looks good. Best colour for a MK6 GTI.
If you are struggling for grip I would suggest 2 things.
1. Get decent rubber.
2. Replace your LCA bushes with an anti lift kit. There are a few around, Powerflex, Superpro, Whiteline.
