Well it might not look too bad then. I think the GTi maybe sits an inch taller than stock now. It's hard to tell just from photos. I have a picture of a supposedly stock AMG on my iPad and that looks to be at least as high if not higher.
If you really like those wheels, I'll keep you in mind for next year. I am going to be doing a 5-lug conversion on the VR4 in the spring and once that's done, I won't be able to use my AMG rims on that car anymore. I might put the AMGs on the GTi. I figure tyres this tall are the best protection for rare wheels. I doubt you can find a curb tall enough to inflict curb rash anymore right?
Edit: Can you take a few more pics with the car on the level and from a few different angles. It looks really cool. It reminds me of Nate's car wearing the Hoosiers. That picture he did in the graveyard with water droplets sitting on the freshly waxed paint was a classic.
