    Hi Folks
    Just bought these four wheels with new centre caps , came off the guys Mk1 Golf Gti .
    I’m running a Mk2 with 8v with 16v hubs and 256mm Tarox Vented Discs and just Ordered Gaz Gold with (400/225lb) springs
    Car is a track car with a new built motor being done as we speak .
    Will those wheels be ok offset wise on a Mk2 for track day use ??
    What’s folks opinion ??

    Hi Taff, sorry I had read that wrong! I thought you these were 15" not 14's!

    I'd advise to go up to a 15". It wont be noticable visually and will give you much better tyre options!
    I dont think 256mm brakes will fit under 14's but I may be wrong.
