Selection of R19 rims for the new Tiguan
I don’t like to drive in a stock car. I modify my car as best I can to make it stand out and not be like everyone else. We have 4 Tiguans in our yard and 2 of them have Victoria Falls rims.
Second When I put the winter tires on 2-3mm relative to the trunk, I wondered even more about the rims. The Victoria Falls born with a child’s 7.0 width and +43 overhang. I like my wheels to be flush with the curve, or even sticking out 1-2 cm. The design of the car is very good, with an awe-inspiring 4. But my soul demands a change!
The challenge for the drives was as follows:
– The cost of a set of disks up to 60 t.rb. – Disc width from 8,0 to 8,5 – Widening from +30 to +38 – Screw drawing 5*112 – Weight, the less, the better). – Design for sheer beauty))
Good branded rims on MAT technology or even forged from 100 t.rub per set.
SLIK Forged set came out +- 80k rub. I’ve heard a lot of good things about this company. But they didn’t quite catch on.
ENKEI technologically MAT I could get it for 65-70k rubles, but I don’t like the design.
It remains a copy of China or Taiwan. I am very familiar with the replica. Polo had 2 sets totaling over 40km ✔ ✔ ✔ ✔ ✔ ✔ ✔ ✔ ✔ ✔ ✔. No problem, the rims are smooth. I’ve had some serious bumps, the rims are solid! The only problem with the replica is the factory paint isn’t very durable, but that’s all relative.
The last seller’s rep on the Polo was not a great choice, but the desire to pick up and order something for a customer who already bought 2 sets. But never mind, didn’t screw up and well)))) ☢
I looked all over Russia, but didn’t want to take the blinders. After all, China is not China. There are both good and bad reviews( I looked more at Moscow.
I found an interesting variation on the rims of the VS505 PERSONAL TRAINING Hint. I found a review on the drive about buying these particular rims from this store. Emailed the guy and told him he wasn’t very happy with the rims or the company that sold them to him. I took no chances and even went to them:))
And then a very interesting option came up for me. VOSEN CV3 Made in Taiwan. I’ve heard a lot of good reviews in Taiwan! The quality is almost like the original)))
The design is certainly pop! And it’s already breaking its own records and hit parades. But, um, bring them to Mr. TIG in silver and wanted))
The parameters, exactly what you need! R19 5*112 ET+35 8.5J Price 55 000 rub. ⚡
The 8.5mm wide wheel is perfect for 235mm wide wheels. It will look thicker than the wheel)) The offset is better! The winter coaster tire stock will increase and the wheel will fit in the arch.
