After a long long period trying to find a good bargain of Audi TT mk1 17” wheels ...They’re here !! Bought on German eBay ,payed non Monday ,arrived on Friday
They came with Pirelli Pzero Rosso
Size 225 45 17 and a lot of tread so I had to try them on ,even after a lot o people here saying that they would rub on full lock steering (yes it’s true but not that bad and easily controlled not to)
Although they put that horrible monster truck look a like.
The front wheels pass the line of the wheel arches by a lot!!! Never thought that ET32 and 7,5” rim would made such a diference.
(before I was thinking in spacers to make that perfect aligned line with wheel arches🤦🏻‍♂️)
The Back wheels looks Nice and aligned.
The TDI 75 is now sticked to asphalt and a little bit slower ...it’s easily noticeable that bigger shoes are heavier too.
my suspension is completely standard (not sport!)
This was just to try the new set but now they will wait on my garage,and 15’s on again😕
till Black Friday on demon tweeks to look for a good price at 205 40 17 tires ,maybe Toyo maybe Goodyear ,I’m not decided yet...
Just took a couple of photos😜

I have the same wheels to my Audi A2 but with 215/40-17 tyres.
I have a set of these tucked away too. Stunning and very rare wheels 👍

Agree with 215/40/17 instead of 205 though as that extra 10mm of width is really needed to make the wider rims look right and the little bit of extra side wall depth helps a little with the comfort factor too👍

Another additional benefit is they would also make the speedo read a little more accurately also.

Just to need to drop on a set of 215/40/17 tyres myself now too

215 tyre size looks right, 205 would have been a tad too narrow on the wider 7.5j rims.

Are you sure the pressures are right though as the front tyre looks to be a little under inflated?

Its a perfect size on a A2 with 7.5 inch wide rims.
I inflated the tyres to 2.9 bars after that I taken the photo.
