Got a set as winter wheels for 2015 GTI with 215/55R16 General Altimax Arctic tires. Very nice wheels, easy installation, came with the required 5x112 bolts (the flange shape is different from the stock GTI bolts). Tire Rack mounting and balancing was spot-on. Two very minor issues. The GTI plastic bolt caps don't fit into the bolt openings in these wheels so you have exposed bolt heads that look pretty industrial (if you are into that level of nitpicky detail). The other issue is that the outsides of the wheels sit slightly wider than stock wheels (by maybe 1/4-1/2" visually). No fender rubbing and it gives the car a slightly beefier look. FYI, the wheels are quite tight around the front brake calipers and will not fit Performance Pack GTIs (you need at least 17" wheels) but a great buy for a regular GTI.
