    I have a set of VW winter wheels and tyres that are surplus to requirements, having previously been on a car that was sold recently. They are suitable for Mark 5 and 6 VW Golfs (amongst others) and may be suitable for Mark 7 as well. I previously used these on a Mark 6 Golf GTD.

    The wheels are genuine VW Aspen 16". They are in very good condition generally, with a small number of minor marks, but no scuffs or marks from kerbing.

    The tyres are Goodyear Ultragrip 9 in 205/55 R16 91H size. Their EU rating is "C" for rolling resistance, "C" for wet grip performance and a sound level of 69 decibels. These were only purchased in November of last year, so have a minimum of 6-7mm tread on each tyre (they have only done around 3500 miles).

    Due to the size and weight, these are collection only from near Telford in Shropshire. I can accept Paypal in advance, or you can bring cash when collecting.

    I am looking for £250 for all four wheels and tyres (the tyres themselves were £300). I will not split.

    Edited to add: I will also include a set of the VW tyre/wheel bags, as seen here: 1 : Volkswagen Alloy wheel bag - up to 18" : 73900 : All : Accessories : Volkswagen UK

    They will fit a mk7 but they won't fit my R though as brakes are too big. Shame these are not bigger else I'd have had these.

    Let me check if they'll fit over the gtd brakes as I know someone who has one on order. I'm by Telford too.

    VW Germany has the Aspen wheels for sale in its on-line shop, and it lists the compatible cars:

    Aspen, 6,5J x 16, Brillantsilber 3AA071496A 8Z8 > Volkswagen Zubehör - 100% Volkswagen

    This includes the following:
    • Golf (A7) 2013-2017
    • Golf (A7-GP) 2017
    • Golf Cabrio (A6) 2012-2016
    • Golf GTI (A7) 2013-2017
    • Golf GTI (A7-GP) 2017
    • Golf Var. (A7) 2014-2017
    • Golf Var. (A7-GP) 2017
    It doesn't show the GTD, but does show the GTI. "Var" is the Golf Variant (estate). I assume 7-GP is the facelift of the Mark 7.

    The VW Germany car configurator also lets you specify 16" steel wheels as an option with the Mk7.5 GTD.

    The GTI has 312mm brakes, I am struggling to find any info on the GTD. My Old Octavia VRS (based on mk6) had 288mm brakes i think and the 16inch wheels only just cleared the caliper. Will need to have a further look into it. Car isn't being delivered until June/July so can't even try it out! Leave it with me to find out for sure!

    Ok, seems they should just fit depending on offsets and wheel weights:

    Taking a bit of a punt with these, not knowing if they will fit until June/July time but can collect any evening this week or at weekend and pay cash. Would you accept £220?

    No, I'm happy for you to pay up in full on the day. I'll send you a PM and we can arrange things off-thread.

    Edit: PM sent!
