Borbet Type E Rims and Kumho Tires - VW 2000 GTI 1.8T
The Borbet Type E rims offer a classy look with a nice conteporary polished lip. The rims are 17x8" and are about as much rim as you can put on a GTI. We gave this set of rims some nice paws, Kumho Ecstas in a 225/45/17 size ensure enough grip when launching or taking corners aggressively. I received 3 compliments at the Discount Tire, and many more have followed!
Agressive offset lip, more than enough clearance with the Cup Kit installed!
