New Wheels for my Ride...

I finally bought new 17's for the GTI. The old ones were bent and had shimmy at about every speed, kind of annoying. I also ordered coilovers yesterday to get a better ride and better drop.
The wheels are a true 2 piece, stainless steel rims. I love them so far, finally I get a Smooth Ride!

2001 Golf GTI VR6 - Super Charged-Intercooler, Nitrous = 305 HP... stage 4 to come soon! .. can you say 400? HP? in a Go Kart!
1999 Ford SVT Lightning - Super Charged @ 600 ponies

Yea I am compensating..

Mmmmmm purty! Those rims are pretty dope Gregg. When are we running for pink slips? My VR6 to whatever you've got in that ugly pile of yours?

I'm ready when you are, just give me a day or two lead time so I can get the Check Engine light turned off, and a rocket of some sort installed.

on street tires with no LSD he'd be hard pressed to hook up well. But a roll on would be sick.

Soooooo much better than before! Awesome dude. Looks like you've got a little stretch in the tires, too.

Now bring it by so I can drive it again.

Yes Chris I did an upgrade about 6 months ago ? Just new calipers ... Rotors are another future investment.
