Few upgrades make more difference to your car’s appearance and dynamics than its wheels.
The VWR ‘Cup Edition’ 18” Light Alloy Wheel is a rim developed for road, race and track use, giving the confidence of perfect dimensions and geometry for your car.
This is the exact same wheel as is used on all of our Volkswagen Racing Cup cars for the past decade – and there is no greater testimony to their performance than that.
The VWR ‘Cup Edition’ 18" rim is a heat treated lightweight alloy wheel. A lighter-weight wheel helps the dynamics of ride, handling and responses through reducing the all-important unsprung weight. Yet at the same time, nothing is more important than the strength, safety and reliability of your car’s wheels. The VWR ‘Cup Edition’ Alloy Wheel’s motorsport pedigree more than proves that it more than meet these challenges.
A weight of only 9kg (19.8lbs) per wheel for the 8" rim width, and under 10kg (22lbs) for the 9" rim.
Perfect offsets for Golf 5/6/7 and other VWG models on these platforms with an offset of ET45 and a rim width choice of 8" or 9”, developed to fit perfectly under the wheel arches.
Developed from the racing programme, this exact family of VWR Cup Edition 18” Alloy Wheels are the only rims used in the Volkswagen Racing Cup.
Produced to the highest standards, developed and manufactured in the UK only to meet and exceed OEM standards.
