Thx Jason
Hskrdu said he had a link to a 15" but I didn't see it. I PM him so maybe it will show up. That's last on the discovery train I believe. If I could get some 60's series LRR tires capable of high pressure on light weight aerodynamic rims, I believe that is what I am looking for.

Hi WED, sorry for the confusion, I was referring to the 15" wheels that you linked, right after OH's post about the 15" alloys from the Jetta Hybrid. The e-Golf wheels I mentioned are 16", IIRC, and are definitely designed for FE. 17's may be making their way onto high-MPG cars, but smaller, lighter, aero wheels with narrow LRR tires will yield better MPG.
Now: 03 Golf GLS TDI 5SPD & (hers) 03 Jetta GLS TDI 5SPD & 2015 GSW TDI 6M
Then: 99 Jetta GLS TDI, 94 Golf GL, 85 Golf GL, 85 Golf, 79 Rabbit C, 68 Beetle, 65 Beetle

Buy Enkei RPF1s. After you buy them, zip-tie drilled pizza pans to them.
