These 18x8 Enkei wheels replaced the factory 19-inch VW Cadiz wheels and Bridgestone Potenza RE050A tires, with Michelin Pilot Super Sport 225/40-18ZR tires, after many conversations with German Golf R owners who also track their car occasionally and drive on fast country roads frequently. The major improvement in reduced road noise is certainly welcome, as is the increased handling capabilities that the Michelin PSS is well known for. Why the Golf R was ever fitted with the 19-inch Cadiz and the Bridgestone RE050A tires is beyond all of us who on an R. I have used Enkei wheels on other vehicles and have had perfect service with all the 'Racing' versions we purchased. Truly a great product. We will be purchasing the same Enkei wheels again, fitted with high-end winter tires soon, not to drive in the snow, but to use at the colder temps of winter.
