I think what set people off about the wk2 rims is there was no raw toughness to the rim for lack of a better word. The wk1 rims are very tough, 5 spoke and thick. Although I have seen the new rims in person and that are a little better I think people were expecting something like the 300 srt rims. Idk to me the wk2 rims still link like a spider is standing on the rim, just seems more refined and less tough. But that's kinda what the wk2 is with its interior upgrade and such, I believe for the car they started with the rims fit, just not what everyone was expecting.
Supercars are designed to melt ice caps, kill the poor, poison the water table, destroy the ozone layer, decimate indigenous wildlife, recapture the Falkland Islands, and turn the entire third world into a huge, un-inhabitable desert. But, only after they've nicked all the oil.--Jeremy Clarkson
