T4 Post Icon Audi tt mk2 alloys?

Looking at some alloys from a mk 2 Audi tt , the tyres are load rated at
98 which is prob ok , trouble is the TT is a small car and not sure the alloys
Would be up to it! Anyone fitted these? They are Trapez alloys if it helps?
Any advice would be welcome, cheers

A Part number would help....

As U say, a TT is light..
So the rims are less than likely loadrated for a T4

Yes, having looked into it I dont think they are up to the job. I'm after a set of
17's to replace my 15" alloys but so many different ones available it's hard to know
What's suitable! Been through lots of threads on here but lots of conflicting views
On load ratings etc! Will keep looking, cheers

Lightbulb Re: Audi tt mk2 alloys?

True, then again fairly simple
There seems to be a rather split view on the load rating issue
At the end of the day U should make an informed choice
At least I try to offer information that MAY be interpreted in such a manner

Based upon what Van U have, U should be looking for rims of big & heavy cars if U need a choice from VAG or Merc (to name a few)

I got a set of 17" tt wheels.

One of them has a crack in it.

Say much?.

With the roads in the condition they are, unless you pick a set up cheap, I would get something robust.

Just my opinion thaough.
