    Just an update on my R stalking. Saw a United grey R with 18s that was clean as a mo fo and it looked awesome! Also saw a White 3 door at spit junction last week at the lights also looked amazing. I don't know if it's making the wait better or worse.

    Pic Request - 19 Inch Talladega's

    Pretty sure the marketing pics have 19's...

    Yeah - plus all the original marketting photos.
    AUSmotive.com (the one in blue).
    Note that in the original marketting photos (in blue in the link above), although the car has 19" Silver Talladegas, the headlight surrounds are in fact silver. However, on any production model, if the headlight surround is black, then it came with 19" wheels.

    So for example, the Golf R on display at the Franfurt Auto Show has 19 silvers.

    There are also various shots in this thread...

    Here's a few in silver...







    Click the link above for 2000px versions. Almost certain these are 19s.

    Cheers guys, just wasn't sure if they were 100% 19s.

    Took an R for a test drive yesterday and today and WONT be getting 19s, the ride is kinda firm (almost too firm) as it is. I'm sure 19s would just make it even harsher.

    Tire pressure makes more of a difference IMO, but depends what the roads are like where you drive.

    I'd get the 19" to get the black headlight surrounds (as most people prefer them) and if it is to bumpy just get aftermarket 18" wheels. You'll get good money for stock 19" R wheels too.
