Well I pulled the trigger on them, so I'll be able to report back when
I get them on. I am a little concerned if they will be able to clear
a big red/rs2/a8l brake setup that I'd like to get, but I'll have to
see. I have G60's on the car currently.
Btw, I like Taka's taste in wheels! =)
Any suggestions on tires? My criteria are that they have decent
treadwear, aren't noisy (in the corners is what I mean specifically),
and not terribly expensive. A "lip guard" molded into them would be
nice too. I don't think I need the highest performing tire. Comfort
and weight are considerations if I can be that picky.
Thanks for the feedback!

The wheel clearance issue would be specific to that wheel, of course.
My AZEVs and Oettingers clear my brakes w/o any problems.

I run knock off (copies) of the '97 A4 wheel in 17" x 8 I think. No
idea of the offset. They work like Taka's do.
One word of caution:
Mine sat so flush on the UFO's we couldn't decide whether the alloy
rim was flush seated on the hub, or the UFO's..................... so
we tossed in a 5mm spacer, and things are still okay (clearance on the
fenders. Stock suspension height.

I've run 17x8 ET30 wheels in the front w/o any problems, with
I don't know if ET30 would clear the rear fenderwells, but doing
a test-fit with just the rim appeared fine.

Does anyone know how suitable some wheels would be for the 200q20v if
the size was 17x8", with a 32mm offset?
More information about the 200q20v
