Hey im looking to buy new rims for my GTi.. its a 2006, silver. I want to put black 18's on it. Possibly with a thin red lip. It is hard to find rims similar to the ones i want that fit the car. I am also wondering if anyone thinks the red will be overdoing it. I felt it would look sick with the red calipers and the red trim in the grill... All feedback is appreciated..Also below are pictures of the tenzo R Mach 10(first picture) and the tenzo R DC-6(second Picture) that i am currently interested in buying. This forum has evolved a bit and two more rims have been added to the discussion. The Tenzo R DC-5(pitcured below 3rd down) And also the O.Z. Ultegras(pictured below 4th down).

for me I like the six spoke ...now if you got some BBS and had it powder coated...hell yeah...i t hink the 10 spoke would be too thin on your car..and the thicker 6 would accent everything nicely

I voted the 6 spoke- the red stripe will look good with the brakes O0

I may be getting O.Z. Ultegras tomorrow >:D

nice... ya the 6 spoke are what i am leaning toward. My biggest question was the red lip because a few people told me it wont look good on the car. but i thought the red calipers and the red in the grill is enough to make it look good

ya i live in new england too.. and im planning on putting a reiger body kit on it so i dont want to put 19's on... they jsut seem to big for a gti. and it is hard to pull the trigger 1200 for the rims and the tires.. which isnt too bad but still... they are 18x18 i believer.. it may have been 18x18.5... im jsut not sure fi they are going to fit the car cuz some sites say they dont and some say they do

Sweet man, I picked up my Rieger body from the paint shop last week, rear apron and front lip should be go'n on this week....then I'll slap on the GHL quad tip I have sitting in my garage :D We'll have to meet up at some point!

Tough call between the last set and the 6 spoke.....I might have to photoshop them on and see what I like better :D

These don't have the red lip that i want. But those are pretty much same concept as the Tenzo Dc-5

Ya dude let me know how the reiger kit looks. I was going to get it because of the qaud exuast that i love. I don't know when it will actually get near my car because i don't have that kind of dough laying around since im only wokring part time. It will probbaly be my last purchase since it is so expensive needing the kit and the exuast. But im planning on getting the rims before november and an apr chip after christmas

I think that settles my choice a little more.. That loooks insane. But I want the Red lip. So i will probably go with the Tenzo R DC-5. I reposted the pic of the rim in this reply.
