New member from Greece with TT quattro coupe,2002 model.
Any advice?
Would anybody put replica alloys on the car?

here is one cool pic for you to look at to help you decide on replica wheels.
they help with handling but reduce acceleration if wheel diameter is increased. only a small amount though ;)

Hey there, welcome to the forum, I am also new here.
Hope you enjoying your car so far.
:blink:
I think when it comes to looks, you gonna get more opinions than there are options, so go with what your own sense of style says.
If the tire size remains pretty much similar, I cant see why you would have handling problems. If you bigger or smaller on the outter diameter, your speedo is not going to show accurate speed and you will have to have it recalibrated. That is about the only thing I can think of but then I aint an expert.... just an opinionated forum member
B)
What a friend of mine did before changing rims on his VW Golf Cabriolet was to take a photo of his car and then digitally replace the wheels with a picture of the different ones he was looking at. Gives a pretty good idea of the result. He put it to the vote a bunch of his friends.... that gave for some interesting debate!

I am not sure.The fact is that we're talking about totally anonymous wheels,no idea about factory of origin,method of construnction,stiffness,wearability,etc...
could you trust them?

you probably could trust them, i dont see why you wouldnt. The losses, even if they do weigh more, are minimal. Unless you're tuning your car for the best proformance you can have, there shouldnt be a problem. Just make sure you have good tired mounted to those suckers <_<
