We all know that few upgrades make more difference to your car’s appearance and dynamics than its wheels.
The VWR ‘Cup Edition’ 19” Light Alloy Wheel is a rim developed for road, race and track use, giving the confidence of perfect dimensions and geometry for your car.
Our ‘Cup Edition’ family of wheels are the exact same rims that have been used on all of our Volkswagen Racing Cup cars for almost a decade – and there is surely no greater testimony to their performance than that.
The VWR ‘Cup Edition’ 19" 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 unrivalled motorsport pedigree proves that it more than meet these challenges.
A weight of just 10.9kg (24.05lbs) per wheel for the 8.5" rim width, yet proven strong enough for the most demanding track usage.
With an offset of ET45, and a rim width of 8.5", the wheel has been developed to fit perfectly under the wheel arches of all Golf 7 models and most other cars on the MQB and A5 platforms.
Developed for our racing programme, the ‘Cup Edition’ family of VWR 18” and 19” Alloys prove themselves as the only wheel used on the Volkswagen Racing Cup cars.
Produced to the highest standards, developed and manufactured in the UK only to meet and exceed OEM standards.
Fitment for all models of Golf 5/6/7 and all the other 5x112 pcd VWG cars on these platforms.
/// This 19"x8.5" rim is suitable for all Golf 7 models, plus all the other MQB and A5-platform cars that use the 5x112 PCD hub pattern and looks simply perfect on these models, filling the arches to perfection.
/// A lightweight wheel such as the Cup Edition alloy makes a big contribution to the ride, handling and responses of any car through reducing the all-important unsprung weight.
/// The PCD is 5x112, with a centre bore of 57.1mm. In other words, the perfect dimensions for your Volkswagen Group car.
/// We recommend a tyre size of 235/35 R19 for these wheels to maintain wheel arch clearance. Note that for Golf 5/6 applications, where arch clearance is tight we would recommend a 225/35 R19. tyre.
/// The Cup Edition 19" wheel meets all international standards (such as the TUV standards) for geometric accuracy and passing the impact requirements and structural fatigue requirements for specific Volkswagen Group models, along with often-overlooked load rating requirements.
/// The 19" rim is a heat treated alloy wheel weighing 10.9kg (24.05lbs) per wheel for the 8.5" rim width, whilst crucially still retaining the strength needed on road or track.
/// The Cup Edition wheel is an attractive 12 spoke design finished in a unique satin graphite grey.
