Just ordered Vorstiener VFF107s 19x8.5et45 with 255/35 MPSS. The wheels are supposed to be here today and then I'll coat them in Gtechniq C5, tires are at the tire shop waiting so hopefully I'll have them all ready and installed on Thursday...if all goes according to schedule and I'm hoping it happens as I have the car entered into a carshow (drivenshow.ca) in Edmonton with my GTI (GTI won "best in show" in the driven Calgary show) on Saturday, the car has to be dropped off on Friday. Crossing fingers...

Thanks for all the input!

Yes, that is the case for 20". To my eye and sense of aesthetic proportion, and I know I'm in the senior minority, it borders on cartoonish (as in Disney-Pixar Cars).

I recently saw a Range Rover Evoque with 20" wheels and it similarly went too far imho.

But whatever You like is what you should get. Truly an eye of the beholder consideration, and seat of the pants too if bad local roads.

I think the 20's look great and aren't too bad on most roads but I took the car on a 700km road trip yesterday and found the OEM 20's were quite rough over jointed concrete highways which are pretty common here, even with the mag-ride set to comfort it became very old quite quickly...so this time I'm choosing the 19's for comfort as this is also my daily driver. I don't think there will be much, if any lack of performance, maybe even a gain. I also prefer the "squared" sidewalls over the stretched tire look, the tires on these OEM wheels look like elastic bands...crossing my fingers that I made the right choice (very much on the fence), I'll find out soon enough.

For the record...19x8.5ET45 Vorstiener wheels do not fit over the brakes! Now I have an extra set of wheels sitting in my garage...not what I want to pay to find out
