.... As a side note the original aluminium wheels are fitted with one anti theft lock nut each which is too big to put the cover on. I still need to buy four separate bolts M12 x 1.5 26mm and replace them. Not a problem but good to have them ready when fitting the wheels.
Would like to see some pics! On the car if possible too. ThanksAs I sold my Gti at end of February I still have the winter wheels and tyres. Pics on here somewhere. Sparco 16 inch Trofeo 4 in bronze with Hankook i’cept tyres. They were only fitted just before Christmas, so doubt they did even close to 1k miles. Tyres were £267, wheels were nearer £450 ish, they’re on demon tweeks still, which is where I got them. One wheel has a very small mark, I need to clean and get some pics. Open
to sensible offers, collection preferred. Otherwise they’ll just sit with the big pile of Corrado alloys.
Will the callipers not run the risk of hitting the wheel (with a large destructive impact) when you go over a large kerb or hit something more lumpy than a three day dead pheasant?Fitted. Not much but enough caliper clearance.

10 minute check in less than ideal conditions (i.e.warm!). Understeers a bit but rides much better.
I can only go by others who have fitted these and report success.Will the callipers not run the risk of hitting the wheel (with a large destructive impact) when you go over a large kerb or hit something more lumpy than a three day dead pheasant?
It seems like running very close to the wind.
I can't imagine what would smash, if stationary caliper hits a rotating wheel at 60mph
Depending on the type you have you may have replace the locking bolts with standard ones to allow them to fitLooking for some assistance re the Steel Wheel option - I have a set of Steel Wheels (357 601 025M) and purchased the black centre caps from VW Heritage (871601171) but they don't fit at all - dont align so confused as thought it would be a direct fit! Does anyone know what black centre cap fits / part no? Any help appreciated.
