Yup, the FD2 rims are not bad. Those changed out by FD2 owner are source by FD owners going 17".....hahhahahhahaha:rofl:
Most of the time is to increase tyre size. I would have kept my stock jetta rims if it is 17" LOL

Stock standard rims for almost all cars are so boring. I know plenty of my frenz dumped their ori rims for aftermarket ones once the cars are outta the showroom (almost).

I know that car manufacturers are counting every single cents for manufacturing their car, and maximize their profit. But to stinge on the rims??

Don't they know that the rims are one important item that make or break the car?

If the car manufacture gonna make money from selling their cars, why not sell with some decent purposeful rims together? I am sure new buyers are eager to pay for good stuff, right??
says who??? look at subaru and mitsubishi oem rim...especially on sti and evo range model....all the rims were so good even other car also cari their oem rim...

Your clone old Jetta is 4 lugs, right? I saw one tyre shop have 17" but 5 lugs and with Asy 2 tyres (2nd hand).....:driver:
Ya clone old Jetta 5 lugs, thats why that time did ask u guys whether possible to convert 5 lugs in which it is costly to do so. New Clone Jetta is 17" and 5 lugs...

Another thing I don't get it is that my old clone jetta in US has 5 lugs. While Malaysia getting 4 lugs.
Unless get the US half cut and swap? :hmmmm:

Your one is 1ZZ-FE right? The other day, I have a ride on my uncle's model which is also using 1ZZ-FE but one generation newer than yours. It is that dual VVT-i model look but pre facelift. Not bad for the car compared to the new Vios. Interior wise, space is almost similar with Vios and Vios interior looks better for me. When it comes to power and comfort, clone jetta win. Really can feel the power during acceleration and the car doesn't feel bumpy at all even though it is using 205/55/R16 tyres compared to Vios's 185/60/R15. But come to think of it, 205/55 had thicker sidewall than 185/60 isn't it?

Malaysia can find US halfcut?

I thought there is some sort of spacer-like thing that can help to convert your PCD? Or it doesn't work with 4 lugs to 5 lugs?

You mean this rim?

Dual VVT-i and 1ZZFE newer model different design. Especially the rear for dual vvt-i
Not bumpy cuz that car meant for comfort mia. Try cornering and the comfort feel won't be there already. 55 lower number than 60 ma. So is thinner.
