    Done - I'll bring a bib as I will most likely be dribbling !

    Very nice Jig, 7.5kg/wheel is damn light! Definitely at the peaky end of the wheel weights chart. I assume 18x8? +50 or did you go for something more aggressive?

    Frenchie your wheels are the BBS CH-R right? And in 20"?

    I'm interested in those wheels but 19" - just dont know if they will go with the CSG on the GTI.

    If I switch to the R I am 99% sure those are the wheels I will go with.

    If I stick with the GTI, itll most likely be the VMR 710's.

    Very well priced and a nice copy of the HRE BMW wheel. I think they will suit the CSG well - but only in the hyper silver finish.

    I love the silver lip on the BBS CH-R though. See how I go on the GTI/R front.

    My wheels are 19'' BBS- CH Black edition and they too have a silver lip protection.

    I don't think BBS CH-R come in 5x112 fitment yet only BMW fitment.

    I do like the VMR in that finish.

    Hi Justin: I dont have the offset as yet. The forging specs is coming within the next week or so and once that has been applied onto the wheel, only then can they tell me what the offset is going to be. It will be an 18x8 wheel for sure but dont know what the ET is yet. Will post here once I have it.

    I'm pretty sure you can select the BBS CH-R in 19" with VW GOLF fitment on Tirerack.com

    Nope - Please tell me if I am wrong but like I said, they have just released 19'' BBS CH-R and they are not VW spec friendly.

    Just went on Tirerack to see - but no luck.

    In time BBS will release CH-R VW/Audi spec friendly.

    i emailed them and no fitment for the VWs yet only BMWs and Audis
    also talked with Frenchie about this, so expensiveee and tires as well!
    VMRs are on my possible list as well and might end up with them

    Cool - so the BBS CH-R 'LOOKING" wheel they have is the BBS CH 'Black Edition' like you have?

    What's the difference?

    I thought the wheels on tirerack looked exactly the same (silver lip, black finish etc).
