Thoughts Rally? Do you know if these would sit right on a MK1?

I don't know anything about mk1 fitment widths or offsets...sorry.

I would steer clear of diamond racing wheels though. I've been reading up on them and it sounds like they aren't up to regular street driving (makes sense since they're meant to be race wheels). People have been bending them pretty easily.

What about painting the black part of the ATS classics either body color or your top
color? I love those wheels and they would fit the look of your car perfectly.

I've heard that from a couple different people now. Sounds like Diamond racing are out then.

I think the classic's are too similar to the snowflake's we have now. I know they're totally different but they still have that vibe for me. I was thinking we might just run spacers with those anyways til we found wheels.

There are tons of nice looking 14's out there.

I almost wish we could fit them.
