The MK7.5 Saga: New Wheels

The MK7.5 Saga: New Wheels

Now that the car is lowered, it's time to begin looking for new wheels. When I began my search, I knew I wanted 19" wheels and something lighter. So immediately Rotiform was out of the picture. Which is fine because I don't really care for their wheel lineup. I began looking at Konig, Motegi, and Enkei for lightweight wheels. I didn't really care for their selections either. I started looking at other brands and I finally found the wheels I wanted.

The MK7.5 Saga: Suspension Stage 1

If you look at my previous builds, you'll notice I love air suspension. It's the minitrucker in me that wants to slam everything to the ground. When it came to this build, I did a lot of thinking and debating on what to do on the suspension. Immediately I wanted air ride, but with the multiple price increases from Air Lift in the last 2 years, air suspension has gone up quite a bit. What used to cost $3-3.5K for a full air suspension setup is now closer to $4.5K. I couldn't talk myself into dropping that much on suspension. I also wanted this build to be more performance focused. "BuT zEb YoU cAn TrAcK a CaR wItH aIr SuSpEnSiOn!" Yeah, I know. You can also track a car with stock suspension, but sometimes there are better options. I finally decided to go with a nice set of coilovers.
