Default Returned Drag Dr34 wheels and picked up these :)

Some of you here knew how I was asking many questions about how to fit an aftermarket wheel (Drag Dr34s). I threw the towel, returned them & got a full refund. I did not want to run spacers, hub centric rings and tuner bolts so my boy is selling his VR6 and I bought these of him today for $260 but the tires are almost bald and 2 centercaps are missing.
Now, something I did notice was that when we switched wheels mine was sitting lower than his. I can't really tell if my 1.8 has any suspension work done but my boys VR6 had a funny 4x4 look to it
Here is mine

vr6 has stiffer suspension due to the added weight of the motor.

they use different springs.. so it sits just a touch higher.

the 1.8t is a softer suspension more sporty.. so due to spring height / tension.. the 1.8t does sit a touch lower then a vr.. from factory.

i actually gave slappy (member here) my gti suspension (1.8t gti stock) for his vr jetta since his shocks were blown in the rear.. it dropped his car about an inch ..

hear tell ebay center caps for wheels work and fit perfectly.


those are also santa monicas

Yea I found some center caps on eBay for $9 55mm diameter. I'm pretty sure they fit.
Should I stick to the 225/45 tires? I was thinking of going with a lower profile.

Update:
So I was at the Tire Shop this morning and as the guy is balancing the new tires I notice my springs were really dirty so I notice some white letters and as remove the dirt with my finger I find this
This car was a trade for an Old 5.0 mustang I had so I don't know what else was done to it by the previous owner.
