Inspired examples of OEM wheels on the "wrong" car!

just stumbled onto this, few pages of jsut weirdness. definitely porsche wheels represented...some OK some retarted

http://forums.vwvortex.com/zerothread?id=2346303&page=1

so if all those wheels fit on VWs, does it mean the other way around as well? winter winter winter beater rims

here are the porsche wheels represented

this is just a bad comment from this dude

"corrado on porsche 996 boxter wheels. personally i think they look better on the rado than the boxter but i think the boxter is awkward looking to begin with"
OK buddy...but they do look nice on that car tho, i must admit

Hi,

Porsche wheels are highly sought after by other car owners, especially German car owners.

They generally look good and are often stronger and lighter than many of the wheels available in the aftermarket for the same money. I agree with OH, I thought they all looked good too...

Happy Motoring!... Jim'99

The GTI on the first post looks good with the 18" Turbos.

Everything looked good with the Porsche wheels except for the VW van. That just didn't look right to me.

Does anyone know if it is possible to put VW wheels on a Boxster S???? It would surely save a few $$$$ for the winter beaters
