Chop Request...

Saw these wheels on a sales brochure for VW's CC:

Wondering how it'll look on a GTI:

Thats actually part of the reason why I am curious about it....they are similar, but less roundy and more angular-y.....

The offset is slightly different and they are .5" wider wheel....

^^^ That's a help. I see why you'd want to do this... less fussy than below. A more serious look.

I agree. They're one of the best looking rims around, so just leave them.
