    wheel options for VW Golf GTI Clubsport

    I am at the moment where i need to buy some new tyres and have been considering dropping a size to 18" rims.
    The original tyre placard states that 18" wheels can be fitted but this is under recall:

    Does anybody have a photo they can take of their tyre placard label (if you had this replaced), I haven't been able to find a photo online of the replacement placard. This might be a long shot as it only applies to the clubsport i believe....only 411 VIN numbers affected.

    Anyone have any advice as to what wheels will fit or what size is best?
    Would be interested if anybody has done this, post a photo if you can.

    19's too susceptible to bad roads ? I agree I have 225/35/19 always scared of pot holes worse than 235/35/19...I .am considering 245/35/19 as I have a set of OZ Racing 19 x 8.5 ready to go. I assume they will not rub !

    IMO I can't stand the ride on 235/35/R19. Dying to downsize to 235/45/R18 when I see a decent set up for sale
