1998 GTI rims?

Hey guys, I'm hopefully trading my Mitsu Ralliart for a 1998 vr6 GTI soon. I have too much animosity to the Mitsu because I paid too much for it thanks to Wolfe Mitsu, among other issues. Anyways, the GTI is lowered, but the previous owner took off the rims and put stock vw rims on it before he traded it in to my work. Any suggestions on style of rims I should pick up and where I could go to get them? Right now I'm looking at deepish old school style, like esm-009r and esm-002

check to see some more about the local vw scene, or for more international scene. Deep is always nice. Many people will hate on the esm for being "fakes." Personally I think they look good for the price, but there are lots of options out there. Have a look around.

So your looking for some 5x100 wheels? I have a few sets of aftermarket ones off my old mk3 vr and corrado, I will PM you links to my FS threads on dubberz, and if your not on dubberz yet I suggest signing up! It's a really awesome community.

i threw some 16" dog dish five spokes on my 94 GTi, unfortunately not the VR6. It's lowered as well and with these rims it looks killer!
