i've recently bought and mk5 R32 and over the moon with it ! but it has 19 inch rotiform wheels lowered on kw variant 3 coilovers , and killing wen i go work due to f****** stupid speed bumps !! so thinking off getting standard wheels (and power coating them black)

my question's or -- how will i found out if they are genuine Rotiform wheels , the car was advertise as rotiform wheels on them but my friend said before i sell them i need make double check there genuine one's

also

how much do you think it would be to get the coilovers adjusted again once the standard wheels or on and obv need all the tracking .

any help would be much appreciated

The inside of the wheel will be stamped with the makers, There are some ZOlders in the FS section for £300. He might even be up for swaps.

Can you adjust them yourself?

Ahh right, he might post i dunno.

You might not need to adjust coilovers if your putting 18's on. If you do want to raise it a local garage can do it easily enough. Have you still got the adjusting spanner?

Had my coil overs adjusted a few months ago, obviously the price varies from garage to garage, but to give you a ball park figure I got my Coil overs altered for £25 per corner and then got the full wheel alignment done for £75.
I used a company that specialise in race and suspensions so overall I didn't think that £175 was too bad (plus they know what they're doing and got the ride height/stance perfect!).

As a side note , The wheel alignment on its own is worth doing as you really notice a difference after

I had my coilovers adjusted on my old golf for £50, and wheel alignment done for 60.

Dont know if youve noticed but AARONMC has got a set of zolders forsale at the mo (bloody good price) and im sure he would be open for a swap with £££?

They need a little referb but if ur going to spray black anyways they could be ideal!

If your swapping you can post to him and he can post to you, and foot the bill for shipping individually?

Just make sure you wrap them up well
