New alloys to replace the ridiculous plastic hubs

Post by ID3_Nutter » Wed Jan 20, 2021 12:01 am

Couldn’t stand the plastic bins on a £38k car, it’s a joke that VW doesn’t supply alloys on the higher priced models !!

They would have been even more higher priced if VW had 😉

Nice allows, are they VW r after market ? Original tyres ? Where did you get the alloys they are great. My Id style is the same colour with plastic bins! Dreadful!

I put a set of id3 18inch east derry with winter tyres on . Sold the id3 as plagued with issues. So left with the 19 inch alloys now for sale

Hi

I kept the original VW tyres is 19inch would have been too uncomfortable and costly I just changed the steel rims for alloys, I brought the 18” ones from here:

They seemed to know what they were talking about also I saw a render of the ID3 R edition and it had those alloys on it

Those are copies of "Brescia" wheels on Golf GTI Clubs port and optional on the Polo GTI

For anyone thinking of buying the real thing, bear in mind that the 18" Polo ones have 100mm PDC, I'm assuming ID3 has 112mm PDC like the Golf and larger VAGs.

I'm not a fan of the ID3 range of optional alloys, they're very closed, presumably for aerodynamics and the lack of a need for a more open design to facilitate better brake cooling, because EV regen reduces the need for heavy braking.
