I hate to say it on this forum, but vwvortex classifieds has wheel/tire pages in both Canada and US and are quite useful for this purpose.

Default does this count.?

Are you also counting oem audi manafactured rims that bolts straight across.? I run 18's from the TT top end model. 7spoke 18"x7.5", 5x100 lugs made by Ronal in Italy for oem audi/VW.
see my example:
http://images2.auction123.com/sizequ...g?webimage001m

Just put those rims on a red 2001 jetta and lower it 2" all around, that one would be mine.

Just VW rims. There are some older rims that VW and Audi both used. I have enough problems in life already and don't want to add more issues to my plate by trying to keep up with Audi wheels. I wish some one would do it, I'd like to link to such a site.

This is a canadian Corrado Wheel:


It also came on some Mk3 VR6s in Europe.



SLC Corrado BBS RZ




Here are the G60 corrado BBS RZ, note that the VR6 version's webbing pokes out:

"Picture 052" (in the A3 section) is an Audi 80 FWD wheel, minus the center cover, but with an owner added VW center cap plugged in. I don't think this Audi wheel was ever used as an OEM VW wheel.
"100-0042" (in the B4 section) is called simply "BBS wheel" in the VW electronic parts catalog.
<edit> Audi 4000 FWD, not the Audi 80 FWD <end edit>

Just added those 2 wheels, no data on them yet. I think the IMG_0766.JPG one is called Las Vegas, which would fall into the city naming theme.

im going to start off by saying i have no clue about tires/rims, bolt patterns etc etc.

with that said, i really like the detroits for the mk5. both my 01 golf tdi (mk4) and the mk5 have 5 lugs, but i dont know if they are both 100 o 112. would they work? and do you guys think it would look good? its either those or the bbs'. oh by the way im going to 17s, any rubbing issues? i dont want alot of gap in the fender.

As noted, mk5 wheels won't fit the mk4s. As for running 17", not an issue, the mk4 platform came with several different 17" rims. As you go bigger on the rims, the sidewall on the tires gets small, so the overall tire tread diameter stays the same. Gap is caused more by the ride height of the car, thus a lowered car has less gap.
